Monday 2pm ET: Feature Artist – Shocking Blue

Shocking Blue was a Dutch rock band formed in The Hague in 1967. The band had a number of psychedelic rock hits throughout the counterculture movements era during the 1960s and early 1970s, including “Send Me a Postcard”, “Love Buzz”, and “Venus,” the last of which became their biggest hit, and reached #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and many other countries during 1969 and 1970.

The band had sold 13.5 million records by 1973 but disbanded in 1974.

Shocking Blue reformed with its most famous line-up in 1979 and recorded “Louise” as their first single since their break-up in 1974. The song was never released, for reasons unknown. They did, however, perform live in 1980 with earlier songs such as “Venus” and “Never Marry a Railroad Man”. They attempted another comeback in 1984 and recorded “The Jury and the Judge” with “I Am Hanging on to Love” as the B-side in 1986. That same year, they recorded another unreleased song, “Time Is a Jetplane”.
