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. Few of them, though, could match the pure excitement etched into the grooves of The Motions' 1965-'66 singles, featuring the definitive line-up of singer Rudy Bennett, songwriter/guitarist Robbie van Leeuwen, bass player Henk Smitskamp and drummer Sieb Warner.
That magnificent procession of songs is laid out for all to hear in dynamically remastered sound on 'Wasted Words: The HAVOC 45s'. 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 vinyl, 'Wasted Words' features a top quality 350-gram carton gatefold sleeve featuring rare photos and all of the original picture sleeve artwork.
