Uploaded by Rich at aftersabbath.blogspot.com the blog for 60s-70s heavy obscurities. Like the other early Dutch punk bands are the Speedtwins of musicians who have decided to go punk, and not those punks out to make music, as was the case during the second wave of punk from 1979 to 1982. Speedtwins is a punk rock band formed in 1977 in the Dutch city of Arnhem, east Netherlands, right next to the border with Germany. The Band members had Daniel and Vera Groen Jody on vocals, Jacki on bass, guitar and Leen Barbier Nico Groen on drums. With this lineup released the album It’s More Fun to Compete! and two EP’s. The name is a reference to a model Triumph motorcycle, created in 1937 by Edward Turner, a 500cc bike attractive to “lovers of speed. ” The album sounds fat for a punk band. Later that year the plate is in a different mix released by Philips. Philips also brings a single with a version of The Who’s My Generation. In 1978, drummer Nico Groen makes the step to the formation Flavium blues. The occupation change with the musicians alongside vocalist Jody Carlo van Rijswijk (drums), Mike van Dalm (bass) and Peter Presser (guitar). Van Rijswijk and Van Dalm are in the same year replaced by drummer and bassist Theo Outhuyse Ton van Rossum. This releases the single occupancy ‘Blackmail In The Jukebox’ and is among others shown in programs of Herman Brood and Teaser. Speedtwins comes to an end as the singer Jody Daniel died in a motorcycle crash in 1984.
