Flesh Colour - the band
The band is composed of:
- Friswa (guitar) from "Jenghis Khan".
- Luc Hensill (guitar) from "Tomahawk Blues Band".
- Michel Vanstappen (bass) from "John Lauwers Band".
- Freddy Nieuland (Drums) from Wallace Collection.
Flesh Color was a rock music group active from 1976 to 1978, formed in Brussels.
Freddy Nieuland, drummer of Wallace Collection, asked Luc Hensill in 1975 to reform with him his band. Luc accepted to start a new band with Freddy. Luc and Freddy asked Friswa to play with them. A friend of Friswa, Michel Van Stappen, came to play the bass guitar. Luc took the new group to the "Stage Night Club" of Forest National. One day, the writer and filmmaker Francois Weyergans invited the group to play music on his new movie "Couleur Chair" (in English: "Flesh Color") with Dennis Hopper. François also asked the group to compose the film music. The band then decided for the first time on a name for their newly formed band, "Flesh Colour", like the film in which they starred.
