BEAT BEAT BEAT from OOSTENDE, UTRECHT, GENT…
THE SEABIRDS * WALLACE COLLECTION
Sylvain Van Holme co-founded The Seabirds in the early sixties. They hailed from Oostende and released a “protest song” in their native Flemish: Protest Rock. He then formed Sylvester’s Team, to find international fame with WALLACE COLLECTION (1968), a band that comprised classically-trained musicians from the Philharmonic Orchestra and – just for once – used the violin to good pop effect. Surely, you remember “Daydream” – a sort of hippie-go-merry anthem (1969). Success continued with Lou Deprijck’s Two Man Sound, after which he focused Ron procuding.
Radio 68 plays lesser-known tracks by The Wallace Collection and The New Inspiration, together with the forgotten band The Klan and the much underrated soul guys Five From Dave – all from Belgium. Finally, we play a number of groups from Utrecht, Holland (to be found on Beat Express no. 4)

In each show, I do a special on Screaming Lord Sutch’s backing band The Savages.This is the special on Cyril Davies and his album “Preachin’ the Blues”. This new double cd features about everything ever recorded by Davies, who died aged 31 in 1964 – when the Blues Boom he helped to create was about to hit it off…
