THE MONTYCOATS You're Mistaken b/w Where Are You Tonight?























YOU'RE MISTAKEN
WHERE ARE YOU TONIGHT?

 The lone 45 from this Dutch four piece was released in 1981 on the Egmond label run by Ros van den Brink and Jos van Woudenberg of the band Dorpsstraat De Munck. Despite the several phony band names listed on the back sleeve, the Montycoats and Rotjoch were the only two bands to record for the Egmond subsidiary. Vincent Verbeek and Ron van den Brink from De Cylinders reinforced the A side on rhythm guitar and Ronald 'Waldo' Welgemoed from Rotjoch sand backups on the track.Band members were:
Simon Dekker- Bass
Martin De Buger- Drums
Jan Betlem- Vocals, Guitar
Guus Houtzager- Lead Guitar
Also, the sleeve design is credited to "A.Toom", the moniker of Rene Demet of De cylinders and their roadie Steven van Couwelaar.

  1. I found one of these today in neck-twisting back-breaking nook (could've been a cranny, can't remember - I did lots of both today). It was sitting right next to a Pantherman single. See, that's what we want from Dutch record shops, isn't it??
