Subject: Video Kids – ancestry

Written By: Henk on 08/13/11 at 12:26 pm

I promised to do this quite some time ago, but other things kept coming up. Now here it is, for all of you that think (thought) Video Kids were a one hit wonder…
Cees Bergman, Erwin van Prehn, Elmer Verhoeff, Aart Mol and Geert Jan Hessing joined forces in the 1970’s. They started out as a regular band, called Catapult. After some initial success in The Netherlands, they decided to “disband” to create more time for their side projects (which, by the late 1970’s, had overshadowed the original band anyway). Those side projects included (co) writing and producing songs for others, as well as recording their own stuff under various goofy monikers. You'll find all of them listed below, in chronological order.

Based on North American charts, Video Kids were a zero hit wonder lol
'Woodpeckers From Space' was a OHW in the UK, peaking at #72 in 1985

I know the song from a CD I bought years ago called Best of Dance '85 that had a bunch of great songs I never knew about previously. 
The version of 'Woodpeckers' on that is different from that version as heard in the official music video.

Master Genius seems pretty good.  I will listen further later.  I like experiencing new songs I never knew about before :)

Excellent referencing there, Henk. They seem to be like the Jonathon King of The Netherlands (minus his 'alleged' perverted behaviour).
