Q65 fueron un grupo de garage y rock psicodélico formados en 1965 y considerados como una de las bandas destacadas dentro del movimiento del rock holandés (“Nederbeat”). En 1970 publicaron su tercer trabajo de estudio, éste fantástico “Afghanistan” que el próximo 20 de Noviembre se vuelve a reeditar tras estar descatalogado muchísimos años. Inspirándose en bandas como The Animals, The Kinks y sobre todo en aquellos jovenzuelos The Rolling Stones años 60, reinterpretando todas ésas maravillosas versiones de R&B añejo.
Q65 was a Dutch garage rock and psychedelic group formed in 1965 and considered as one of the more prominent bands associated with the Dutch rock wave (Nederbeat) of the 60’s. Inspired by bands such as The Kinks, The Animals and most of all by the way The Rolling Stones interpreted the Rhythm & Blues from blues masters like Willie Dixon and Muddy Waters. ‘Afghanistan’ is the third Q65 album released in October 1970. The album contains both, one LP side of studio recordings featuring Golden Earring members Rinus Gerritsen and Barry Hay on several numbers and one full LP side “Rock & Roll Medley, recorded ‘LIVE’ at Sarasani, on the Dutch island Texel.
In January 1966, Q65’s debut single “You’re The Victor” was released and later peaked at #11 on the Dutch Top 40. Two other singles reached the Dutch charts the same year; “The Life I Live” (#5) and “I Despise You” (#19). Their first album entitled Revolution found Q65 at their peak. The band played acoustic as well as hard psych numbers along with the standards, and experimented with harmonium and other instruments to make Revolution way more interesting than the average Garage release.
