Twilight Zone which handles about a double-crossed assassin became another number 1 hit for the band in their home country.
Actually their fourth number 1 hit song in The Netherlands. Golden Earring performed at the Sartory Saale in Cologne on June 05, during one of the many Rockpalast broadcasts. The decade between and the Grugahalle in Essen was the place of the classic era of the Rock Palast Nights, which were broadcasted live on german television and via Eurovision all over Europe twice a year.
You see the band in a very energetic show in great shape. So after spending much of the late '70s and the early '80s internationally as a cult band, Golden Earring returned to an international level of popularity in with the hit single and popular MTV attraction "Twilight Zone". Like those albums, Cut works its way through a series of guitar-based rock songs built on strong hooks. However, the band allows themselves to instrumentally stretch out a bit on some of the songs this time out.
The most notable example is the midsection of "Twilight Zone," where George Kooymans lays out an exploratory series of guitar solos that build to crescendo over the taut bass line provided by Rinus Gerritsen.
The album Cut, recorded with producer Shell Schellekens, became a huge succes. The United States provided Golden Earring another succes. Twilight Zone climbed up in the Billboard Hot to the 10th position. The other songs on Cut aren't as tightly crafted and hook-laden as those on the last few albums, but there are still plenty of strong tracks: "Baby Dynamite" is a power ballad about a fame-seeking girl that is built on a nicely harmonized chorus and "Lost and found" is a strong mid-tempo rumination on the end of a relationship that boasts an impassioned yet subtle vocal performance from Barry Hay.
Besides "Twilight Zone" this album track is the least typical. The Devil Made Me Do It is a witty, fast-paced pop-rocker about love gone bad built on an eccentric but effective combination of mock-gospel call and response vocals and an energetic horn section.
Some of the Cut tracks fall short of the mark "Future" runs a decent riff into the ground by failing to develop it in an interesting way , but the album contains enough strong tracks to make it worth a listen for the Golden Earring fan.
Professor "Doc" Edgerton showing the jack of diamonds playing card being shredded by a bullet. The image is used in the music video of "Twilight Zone" in which the card represents the life of the rogue espionage agent. Modern, high-end consumer cameras are capable of capturing 60 frames per second fps , and the fastest camera in the world can take over a trillion frames per second. Professor "Doc" Edgerton was one of the early pioneers of strobe photography.
During his long and distinguished career as a professor at M. Edgerton produced dozens of wonderful photographs with a tremendous degree of artistic merit. In our slightly biased opinion, one of his best photographs is called Cutting the Card Quickly The picture shows a bullet tearing through a King of diamonds.
The card in the photograph was a Racer Back No. Photograph by Harold E. Edgerton outdid the gunslinging heroes of western movies by turning the card sideways when he shot through it. The rifling of the barrel caused the rotation of the projectile, which, in turn, carved out the S-shaped slice of card between the two halves. The Twilight Zone single carries the back side King Dark, which is a non-album release.
In several countries abroad these tracks were named in Spanish. B-side King Dark was originally called "Don't Be Silly" and performed several times live in Spring as well under that title.
The Golden Earring Cut album was released in Argentina as well with the Spanish title Corte on Mercury Records label as an lp and promo lp; all titles are in Spanish! The Cut album was released on September 03, and there was a launch party for the album on September 06, in Amsterdam. The location was movie theater "The Movies" as a reference to the Twilight Zone video clip. This clip is directed by Dick Maas and one of the very first Dutch video clips. The Cut album entered the Dutch LP top 50 on September 18, and reached in the week of October 02, the first position in this Dutch album list.
Videos were made to promote songs; they weren't meant to necessarily be about art. Back in , Golden Earring had a top hit with "Twilight Zone. The video had breasts in it, and a scene in which the spy hero, being tortured for information, has a vision of women dancing in bondage gear.
Now, Golden Earring was a Dutch band, so this was just another day in Amsterdam to the group, but the resulting furor over the video only helped to propel the song up the charts. On September 28, Golden Earring is at the Hitkrant magazine for an hour in which fans could phone with the band and ask them questions. The event was organised to promoto the album Cut and one fan could win a prize for the most original question. The show was recorded at de Maaspoort in Den Bosch.
The program started at Somewhere in Rinus broke his collarbone during a soccergame, but this didn't prevent him from playing on This happened only a day before Rinus beacme father of his first child, a daughter called Naomi. In the same period just after finishing the "Cut" album recordings George Kooymans also became a father as his wife Milly gave birth to their son Kid.
In Barry Hay received his first tattoo located on his left shoulder. The tattoo was set by Henk Schiffmacher who became a big friend as well. The tattoo was a dolphin jumping through a ring and Barry got the idea for it when he saw a t-shirt on which the scene was depicted.
Later during the 80's Golden Earring opened for Rush and. These radio shows are available on lp-sets, but are hard to find and collectors items. In the same year 'Twilight Zone' became a big hit in the U. The Twilight Zone single was released in many countries. The English issue has a different cover than the Dutch one. You see the Earring with neon lights wrapped around them and Japanese style lettering in an artistic way.
Earring may have been together since the Sixties, but "TZ" proves that they still can deliver. Listen to the line "When the bullet hits the bone" and take cover as the fractured fragments fly.
On the contrary: Golden Earring toured several times through the United States, but this time all financial matters were closely monitored to avoid a new financial problem. Former debts from past USA-tours were paid of and finally a little money was earned.
The album Cut became gold in Canada and the single Twilight Zone reached the third place in the charts.
Top hit thanks to a high rotation on MTV music channel. In February and March Golden Earring was the opener special guest for several Rush shows during the Rush Signals New world tour and opened at least 11 shows for them. During this show a 2-lp Radio Show was recorded. A radio show is a professional live recording in much better sound quality than you can get from any radio recording which is always reduced in dynamics with a compressor. The recordings are used for radio stations to promote the band with live recordings.
Also a local tv station was present to make some recordings. Golden Earring saw a brief American comeback with the album Cut and the Top ten single "Twilight Zone," but just like the middle of the seventies, Golden Earring could not sustain it's momentum and faded away again in the U.
The Cut album debuted on the USA Billboard album charts on February 26, , highest position 24 and was charted for 12 weeks Catalogue info: 21 Records After their return from the United States on April 13, the band gave a press conference at Schiphol Airport and was awarded with a golden record for their hit album "Cut".
They also announced a special "Welcome Home" concert at Ahoy Rotterdam. This show was given on April 29, for fans and the complete light show from Rush was flown in from London as a special extra. Unfortunately the support act was then Vandenberg instead of Golden Earring which would have been a great combination.
Golden Earring performed again at the Rotterdam - Ahoy for their back home concert on April 29, This is the first major concert in Holland again when the band returned from their USA tour. This gig was only preceeded with a try out show at Lelystad - Agorahal on April 27, The Hitkrant Magazine dated April 30, mentioned the band got a golden record for their Cut album on their arrival at Schiphol Airport.
