Cuby & Blizzards–Desolation[1966]Netherlands

Cuby & Blizzards–Desolation[1966]Netherlands

Cuby & The Blizzards record their first album Desolation.The title comes from the book ‘Desolation Angels’ by Jack Kerouac,one of the leaders of the beat generation,who is very influential on the artistic Dutch youth as well.It is the first Dutch blues album and draws the attention of Willem de Ridder, editor-in-chief of Hitweek.Harry’s farm in Grolloo becomes a place of pilgrimage.Ton Sybrands,Simon Vinkenoog,Boudewijn de Groot,Johnny the Selfkicker,John Mayall,Eddie Boyd and Alexis Korner all sleep at Harry’s farm.A ‘road to fame’ in Grolloo reminds us of the many, often eccentric,visitors.Single ‘Just for Fun’ is a tribute to the village and its inhabitants.a small village called Grollo (population: 500) situated in one of the most isolated parts of Holland.
A young piano player called Herman Brood (ex-Moan)joins the band.Moan regularly performs for American soldiers in Germany,always an exhausting experience.To keep it up they swallow pep pills given to them by the Americans, and Brood turns it into a lifestyle.
