Zipps


Zipps were a progressive/psychedelic freakbeat band from the town of Dordrecht, The Netherlands. The band's name may also be spelled as The Zipps: both 'The Zipps' and 'Zipps' have appeared on record sleeves. The Zipps formed in Dordrecht in the fall of 1965. Lead guitarist Peter Nuyten and drummer John Noce Santoro previously teamed in the Moving Strings, releasing a pair of singles on the Delta label before dissolving, while singer/guitarist Philip Elzerman and vocalist Jan Bek came to the Zipps line-up from the Beat Town Skifflers.

Zipps were a progressive/psychedelic freakbeat band from the town of Dordrecht, The Netherlands. The band's name may also be spelled as The Zipps: both 'The Zipps' and 'Zipps' have appeared on record sleeves. The Zipps formed in Dordrecht in the fall of 1965. Lead guitarist Peter Nuyten and drummer John Noce Santoro previously teamed in the Moving Strings, releasing a pair of singles on the Delta label before dissolving, while singer/guitarist Philip Elzerman and vocalist Jan Bek came to the Zipps line-up from the Beat Town Skifflers. Bassist Theo Verschoor tenured in the Twilights.

Bek quit the Zipps prior to the release of their debut single, "Roll the Cotton Down," issued in early 1966 on the Op-Art label. After signing to the Relax label, the group issued two more singles that year, "Chicks and Kicks" and "Beat and Poetry." Beginning with 1967's "Marie Juana" -- a record which required significant lyrical revisions before Relax censors would agree to its release -- the Zipps steered their garage-influenced sound towards psychedelia, and thanks in part to their hallucinatory light show, they were regarded by many as "The Dutch Pink Floyd". Elzerman openly promoted drug use in interviews, and stickers reading "Be Stoned! Dig: Zipps Psychedelic Sound" were distributed at live dates. After backing French pop singer Philippe Salerne on his singles "Elle" and "Venez Voir Comme On S'Aime," the group replaced Santoro with drummer Wim Klein, but after a December 1967 date in support of the Electric Prunes and the Soft Machine, the Zipps dissolved when Nuyten, Verschoor, and Klein all announced their exit.

Elzerman and Santoro reformed the group in early 1968, adding guitarist Dick Visschers and bassist Ruud van Seventer for one final single, 1969's "When You Tell It, Tell It Well..!" The Zipps eventually disbanded for good, and in 1999, the Dutch label Pseudonym compiled all of their singles, the Philippe Salerne sessions, and a handful of live cuts for a retrospective titled Be Stoned! Dig: Zipps. In December 2001, a Zipps lineup consisting of Elzerman, Nuyten, Santoro, van Seventer, and former Heatwave keyboardist Janco Barut reunited for a hometown performance in Dordrecht; the following year, "Chicks and Kicks" was included on the second Nuggets box set.
