MOTIONS – WASTED WORDS: THE HAVOC 45’S – DUTCH FREAKBEAT – MOD – GARAGE – LP
When The Motions crashed into the Dutch charts at the beginning of 1965 with ‘It’s Gone’, they opened the floodgates for a tidal wave of young Dutch bands.
The raw, frenetic garage-beat of ‘It’s Gone’ and ‘We Fell In Love’, vibrant, mournful laments like ‘I’ve Got Misery’, ‘For Another Man’ and ‘I’ll Follow The Sun’, the stark socially-conscious folk-rock of ‘Wasted Words’, the explosive freakbeat of ‘Everything That’s Mine’ and the sophisticated pop balladry of ‘My Love Is Growing’ – all written by master songsmith (and future Shocking Blue mastermind) Robbie van Leeuwen. The latter song so impressed co-producer Scott Walker that he recorded it with the Walker Brothers.
Pressed on 180-gram solid orange vinyl, ‘Wasted Words’ features a top quality 350-gram carton gatefold sleeve featuring rare photos and all of the original picture sleeve artwork.
