Hard Rock / Heavy / Power / Melodic / Progressive Metal [Requests] » [REQS] Kleuytifer's Friend (Nld) - Night Snake & His Name Is The Devil [Singles] (late 60's/early 70's)


Occult Hard Rock / Prog / Proto-Metal stuff from Holland.
I'm looking for their singles 'Night Snake / Flying Saucage (19xx)' and 'Children's Afterbirth / His Name Is The Devil (19xx)' both apparently released sometime between 1968-1971.

Have anyone ever seen or heard them?... the biography sound a bit suspicious...

Info/Bio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6CvTyuS43A
Kleuytifer's Friend was active between 1968 and 1971 and released only two singles: "Night Snake" b/w "Flying Saucage" and "Children's Afterbirth" b/w "His Name Is The Devil".

The musicians came and went but the core members were:
Gurthard van der Kleuytij -- baritone saxophone
Baal Gulifer -- Hammond organ, Moog synthesizer, xylofone and vocals
Joek Fleuyt -- electric, acoustic and 12-string guitar
Klaas Buncker -- drums
Frieda Saabelbrunk -- flute, vocals and stage art
Knud Mogens -- percussive instruments, kaleidoscope operator

After the release of "Night Snake" the group gained notoriety as an extraordinary live act. Their concerts lasted for several hours and contained spectacular light shows and, sometimes disturbing, theatrical elements including animal sacrifice and self mutilation.

After the break up all members drifted into obscurity except for band leader Gurt Kleuytij. After years of heavy drug use he became a born again christian and enjoyed a brief but successful golfing career. He now resides outside Amsterdam where he works as a children's dentist.
They are not to be mistaken for the West German pop/rock group Lucifer's Friend.

Someone's taking the piss i think.
No mention of the band anywhere online except in connection to the video on youtube.
And i notice that the uploader there calls himself Gurt Kleuytij.
The cover looks like it's been knocked up on a computer and made to look aged, and the music sounds like a modern attempt at sounding vintage too.
For a supposedly rare old single, there doesn't appear to be any crackle or static on the 'vinyl'.
(hmm)
I call bullshit on it.
A hoax.
