Band : The Lollipops

( Danish 60’s pop trio with major succes as teenagers in the 60’s and moderate succes as more adult oriented pop act in their 2nd run in the 70’s. 

Founded 1960 by brothers Torben and Jørgen Lundgreen with cousin Poul Petersen in 1960, when they were 10, 9 and 12 years old respectively. After winning a teen-talent competition i Denmark they experienced succes in gigs at the Swedish folk park concerts in the mid 60’s. In Denmark the trio saw teen hysteria normally reserved for the major foreign acts of the era, like The Beatles. 

Drummer Poul Petersen left the band in 1966 and was replaced by Henrik Lund. With two guitars and drums only in the band, Lollipops were joined on stage by various bassists, a.o. Stig Kreutzfeldt. After years of extreme succes by Danish standards in 1971 the band had lost it’s appeal and the band decided to end the first era. The bands major hit in that era was the 1967 Sussy Moore. The song was very alike to and even adapted it’s title from the lyrics of Tim Hardin’s “Lady Came From Baltimore”. Hardins rights holders suppened for copyright violation, and reportedly the case was discretely settled. 

The band was revived in 1973 and in the following years sought and found adult MOR succes. Lund left in 1977 and the band essentially was a Lundgreen brothers duo accompanied by various on bass and drums. This second run lasted until the mid 80’s and included a few failed attempts at winning the Danish section of the European Song Contest. 

The band had a short and final 3rd run as a sextet, releasing their final album in 1989. The final line up, sometimes referred to as “The New Lollipops”, included the Lundgren brothers and Kim Gutman (guitar), Søren Berlev (drums), Chris Paulsen (bass) and Birdie Hurns (guitar). 

Jørgen Lundgreen died in 2004).

SECRET OYSTER became somewhat of a super group when members of BURNIN’RED IVANHOE, CORONARIAS DANS and HURDY GURDY formed this unit. By the end of BURNIN’ RED IVANHOE’s career (that spawned seven years), Karsten Vogel started forming a new band taking along with him BRI’s drummer Thrige and often jazz-partner bassist Vinding with him. Knowing from the Danish circuit guitarist Claus Bohling, he enticed him into the band that took its name from a track from BRI’s second album Secret Oysters Service. The last to join was keyboardist Knudsen, who had never played an electric instrument prior to entering this outfit, but was playing in a piano avant-garde trio. Knudsen would prove particularly helpful as the second songwriter of the group and allowing Vogel to leave the keyboards at will to play wind instruments.

Their sound recalled MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA, NUCLEUS, Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi and Sextant albums as well as Miles DAVIS’s Bitches Brew. Quite a success and this prompted their record company to release that album internationally but under the title “Furtive Pearl”. After a line-up changze that saw the rhythm section get a complete overhaul (Staer for Vinding and Streenberg for Thrige) their second album, Sea Son, is even better but failed to get international public recognition, even if all connoisseur will mostly agree on this album being the band’s apex. At one point the line-up of this group was also exactly the same as BURNIN’ RED IVANHOE (after it got revived because they also developed rockier material) as well as a third outfit, “Day Of The Phoenix”. This did not stop them from writing the music to a ballet “Vidunderlinge Kaelling” released as an album under the name of “Astarte”, with very mixed results just a few months before their final album, the much better “Straight From The Krankenhaus” also known as “Orlander”.

Aside from their confusion of their album names and general discography, SECRET OYSTER is a great jazz-rock/fusion outfit that deserved a lot more attention for they were almost as good as the groups named above.

All four original albums have received a thorough and outstanding remastering with added bonus tracks on the great label Laser’s Edge. Secret Oyster got back together (Bohling, Vogel and Knudsen plus a new bassist and drummer) during the re-issues of their albums, touring the states and Denmark. Also maybe in the works, an un-released studio album (roots in the Astarte ballet deal) and a live album from these years could see the light of day in the following years.
