In 1965 Joop Roelofs, Frank Nuyens and Willem Bieler decided to form a band together with bass player Peter Vink and Jay Baar. In the first months, a lot of time is spent learning to play blues standards. Willie Dixon, Bo Diddley and Robert Johnson are their favorites. Nuyens, Baar and Bieler are good at writing their own songs. The name of the band is conceived. The year of the founding with the letter Q before. The Q65 will start in May. The first performance is in the UTS in Scheveningen. Soon the reputation of the band in The Hague and surroundings is known. It is a rough tire with an unkempt appearance. Bieler's long hair stood out. They were compared to the English band The Pretty Things. The group rehearses in the roller skating rink the Eekhoorn at the Leyweg in The Hague. Peter Koelewijn is tipped and looks at a Q65 appearance. There is an audition at Phonogram in the Wisseloord studio. Under the direction of Peter Koelewijn, two recordings are made of their self-written songs. The recordings are so good that they decide to put them on the record. You're The Victor will be the first single, a rough and unpolished number. The hague English of Bieler stands out immediately. The b-side is the quieter And Your Kind. On March 5, 1966, the record in the Veronica Top 40. The highest ranking is number 11. Because of this success the career of the band is gaining momentum. Wout van Soest becomes the manager of the band and the gages go up. Under the direction of Peter Koelewijn, two recordings are made of their self-written songs.

The song is written by Jay Baar on the houseboat at the Soestdijksekade in The Hague. With this song the Q65 is really popular. The first wall paintings are created in The Hague. Q65 is painted on the wall at various locations in the city. The release of the new single is accompanied by a spectacular crossing in a dinghy from London to Scheveningen. At first they would still perform in London. Since no work permit was requested, the Q65 was not allowed to work there. The band first does Radio City. Because of the rough sea the Q65 had to change to the boat during the trip. At Scheveningen, the members of the Q65 stepped back into the rubber dinghy to be overtaken as heroes by their fans. Then the Q65 gives a smashing performance on the Scheveningen Pier. The name Q65 is now widely known. The weekly Revue writes a negative article about the boat trip. The group now appears in various TV programs. The Q65 is among others in Voor de Vuist Weg by Willem Duys. The Life I Live is the biggest hit and stands 14 weeks in the top 40 with the highest ranking the 5th place ...~




Q65 was one of The Nederlands most popular beat bands from the 60's. After their glory years, that ended abruptly when singer Willem Bieler joined the army, the band reformed in the spring of 1970, with drummer Beer Klaasse of the legendary Group 1850 behind the kit. They secured a recording contract with Negram and released the renowned albums Afghanistan and We're Gonna Make It, which are worth a fortune in the original versions! Afghanistan sounded terrible when it was released, because of a bad pressing. That's why for this re-release Pseudonym has decided to digitally freshen up the original recording tapes. Thanks to a crystal clear remastering the songs sound like they never did before. 
In the second part of their career, The ‘Kjoe' has developed immensely on a musical and technical level, and you can hear that very well! Longplayer Afghanistan opens with the instrumental Injection, that blasts from the speakers. I'm Glad, with rolling drum intro, has improved incredibly in this remastered version. One whole album sidewas filled with the recording of a live performance in club Sarasani, on the island of Texel. As a bonus Graveyard Train has been added, a Creedence Clearwater Revival song, that was never before released by Q65. Special guests on this album are Barry Hay and Rinus Gerritsen of Golden Earring. 
We're Gonna Make It is the Q65 compilation album with all A- en B-sides of their Negram singles and some leftovers from the recording sessions for Afghanistan. These recordings have also been digitally refreshed and remastered. As a bonus on this album you will find the single Love Is Such A Good Thing. The come-back of Q65 started in March of 1970 with the single Don't Let Me Fall and Sexy Legs was their hit single in October. ....~
