“Sandy Coast started as a skiffle Group in Voorburg, Holland, 1961. Notwithstanding the many merits of the other group members, Sandy Coast was the brainchild of composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Hans Vermeulen (1947-2017). As a pop group, they excelled in nice, harmonic, classic songs, such as We’ll Meet Again (no. 30, 1966), Sorry She’s Mine (no. 40), A Girl Like You ( no. 28), And Her Name Is…Amy (no. 22), I See Your Face Again (no. 12, 1968) and True Love, That’s A Wonder (no. 3, 1971). Amazingly, they never broke the Top Ten in the sixties. At the end of that decade, the group turned psychedelic and experimental, delivering ‘From The Workshop’ in 1968. Such was their professionalism and status in the music industry, that Larry Page of Page One records (The Troggs, etc.) came to see them in Holland and signed them on the spot. Chartwise, they fared better in the early seventies, but Vermeulen disbanded Sandy Coast when he considered he had given everything he had to give”.  © Eddy Bonte for Radio 68.Radio 68 plays the entire ‘From The Wokshop’ album.


(… ) But Numero Group’s new reissue of the album is a welcome follow-up to Action Painting, the comprehensive two-CD anthology Numero released last year. Despite the filler, We Are Paintermen is a fantastic introduction to the band, neglecting only two essential Creation tracks (“How Does It Feel to Feel” and “Life Is Just Beginning”) and including most of their landmarks: “Making Time” and its excellent B-side “Try and Stop Me” are here, as is the just-as-incredible follow-up single, “Painterman” backed with “Biff, Bang, Pow.” Reputedly cut by producer Shel Talmy from the original master tapes—although, crucially, the word “analog” does not appear on the hype sticker, suggesting a digital intermediary—the songs appear in punchy, animated mono, as they were first heard in 1966 and 1967 (…) The Creation’s story is a convoluted one, with departing and returning band members, stray tracks, latter-day reunions, and a confusing discography. With Action Painting and now this superbly presented replica of We Are Paintermen, Numero Group is setting straight the historical record of this fantastic band. Now you can at least say you’ve heard of them. (…)
