On The Air: Touch

Jeff 'Monoman' Conolly was a huge fan of so-called nederbiet, mid-sixties pop from Holland, and of wild Amsterdam cultband the Outsiders in particular. So when he was invited to play a session for VPRO radio in 1987 with his garage band the Lyres and was informed that übercool former Outsiders frontman Wally Tax would drop by as well, Conolly understandably got rather nervous. Fortunately, he regained his cool in time to back his hero on a glorious version of the Outsiders classic Touch, originally released back in '66 in the sleeve pictured above. Wally Tax is second from right by the way, supposedly wearing the longest hair in all the lowlands.
