Q65 was formed in early 1965 when guitarists Joop Roelofs and Frank Nuyens decide to start a band with singer Willem Bieler. The line-up is completed by bass player Peter Vink and drummer Jay Baar.
The band is inspired by Rhythm and Blues traditionals and the songs of Robert Johnson and Willie Dixon as well as The Kinks, The Animals and The Rolling Stones. Q65 started their performances in the Spring of 1965. During a concert at skating rink De Eenhoorn, they met producer Peter Koelewijn. Very impressed by their show, he invited them to an audition at the Phonogram studio, where they record two of their own songs: And Your Kind and You're The Victor. Koelewijn decided to release them on vinyl.

'Afghanistan' is notably a Q65 re-grouping of the band but the line-up looks to be pretty much the same as their 1966 'Revolution' album {see my review} except for maybe one member. Said to be Q65's second 'proper' release. Tracks here that did it for me are "Love Is Such A Good Thing", their psych gem "Baby Don't Worry", the bluesy "Nobody Knows When You're Down And Out", "I Gotta Move" and "Don't Let Me Fall". Plus, their fourteen-minute "Rock & Roll Medley" is good too - with snippets of some truly great songs from the past like "Long Tall Sally", "Whole Lotta Shakin'", "Jenny Jenny" and "My Babe". Sure noticed that unless you're willing to spend some serious money, that MANY of the titles on the Pseudonym Records label is usually tough to find - most of the time. Nonetheless, this CD is a must-have. ~Amazon

Q65 reformed in 1970, with Beer Klaasse on drums, and signed to Negram Records, staying together for one year and two LPs, Afghanistan and We Are Gonna Make It, which had a slightly more psychedelic orientation. Q65's line-up changed during the early 1970s as Nuyens exited to join Baar in a band called Rainman, while Q65 continued with a new line-up, featuring John Frederikz on vocals and Joop van Nimwegen on guitar. The original Q65 reunited in 1980 and toured that year. The group continued in various configurations throughout the middle of the 1980s. Jay Baar died in 1990, but a version of the band, with Wim Bieler as leader, continued playing into the 1990s.
"Trinity" is an acoustic album, released 30 years after band's glory days, more than other Q65's albums.

Revival was their second lp released in 1968/1969. Prior to that Q65 had released a superb 1966 debut, plenty of great non-lp singles and an outstanding blues rock ep titled Kjoe Blues. It was a time of transition for the group, Bieler was tired of the club circuit and opted out for military service. Other members were making new music under the name Circus. These new tracks reflected the psychedelic era but it wasn’t long before Circus folded and Hans Van Hemert released a new Q65 album titled Revival. Revival was made up of earlier singles, stray album tracks and Circus material. Much of the music had more of a psychedelic vibe but still bore many of the classic hallmarks of Q65.

Q 65 were among only a handful of non-English speaking bands of the mid-'60s whose talent rivaled second-tier groups such as the Pretty Things in the search for a rock-oriented update of Chicago blues. What set them apart, and what makes Revolution very reminiscent of Back Door Men by the Shadows of Knight, is the broad range of music performed above and beyond the basic R&B.
