"At last we will be witnessing the release of the CD version of Honeymelon Teapot, the out of print Grey Past Records LP release by Dutch freakbeat band The Heatwave -- featuring 10 extra tracks! This band wrote all their fantastic material themselves. No covers here! That they never had an official record release during their heyday surpasses and defies all comprehension. The music has been taken from rare 4-track demos and studio recordings with Dutch leading 60s producer Freddy Haayen and two with Job Maarssen, all recorded from 1967 to 1969. The vinyl album from 2006 got fantastic reviews worldwide and captured that cool 1967-1968 mood to a T, mixing gritty fuzzed freakbeat with Motown mod sounds and a thick slice of that brilliant '60s trash we now refer to as Nederbiet. They hailed from Dordrecht and they would eventually become members of The Zipps and Inca Bullet Joe. Willem de Ridder, one of the most important Dutch '60s (and '70s) cult icons, wrote an introduction for the 32-page CD booklet and only 500 CDs have been issued on that mesmeroid underground label, Grey Past Records."
