Left Side


Dutch band from the village of Volendam that plays the local 'palingpop' sound. With the single (Like A) Locomotion the band also scores a big international hit.

Harmen Veerman (vocals, guitar), Dick Plat (keyboards), Cor Veerman (vocals, bass, ex-Alles), Jaap Lauteschutz (vocals) and Jaap Kras (drums) from the village of Volendam form Left Side after having performed as the Beat Boys between 1965-1967.

Dutch band from the village of Volendam that plays the local 'palingpop' sound. With the single (Like A) Locomotion the band also scores a big international hit. Although Left Side has several hits in the Netherlands the band never becomes as popular as other 'palingpop' bands the Cats or BZN. Harmen Veerman (vocals, guitar), Dick Plat (keyboards), Cor Veerman (vocals, bass, ex-Alles), Jaap Lauteschutz (vocals) and Jaap Kras (drums) from the village of Volendam form Left Side after having performed as the Beat Boys between 1965-1967. Jan Veerman, Harmen's brother, becomes the band's manager (he dies at the age of 18), and is later succeeded by Bep Veerman (no brother).

The band starts working with producer Gabe Dirne and is offered to record a song written by Wim Tol (a.k.a. Billy Stein), called Confusion In My Mind. The song becomes a small hit. Left Side's heavily influenced by their contemporaries the Cats.

Harmen's brother, Cees, is even a member of The Cats. Despite a successful start it doesn't take long before the first problems surface: Jaap Lauteschutz is asked to leave the band because several of his colleagues don't think he has sufficient musical skills. As a consequence, Cor Veerman also decides to throw in the towel. They are replaced by Jan Schilder (bass) and Steef Reilingh (guitar).
