Strawberry Bricks Entry: 
Supersisters' third album, Pudding en Gisteren, yielded a Dutch Top 40 single and again saw release in the UK, this time on Polydor. The single, "Radio" b/w "Dead Dog," evinces Robert Jan Stips's creativity and humor, while the ensuing "Psychopath" offers a nod to Kevin Ayers. Clocking in around the 12-minute mark, "Judy Goes on Holiday" covers a lot of ground, including some serious doo-wop that closes the piece. The title track gets back on course, charting a rousing melody of clavinet and flute, before slinking down to a funkier groove. From there, it's all over the place, with Stips's keyboards always at the fore and the ever-present rhythm section of Ron van Eck and Marco Vrolijk underneath. The album was successful, at least critically, as Supersister earned an Edison music award in their native Netherlands. As with the band's two previous albums, the record was produced by Hans van Oosterhout. However, due to creative differences on Supersister's following project, Sacha van Geest and Vrolijk left the band. Their next album—Iskander, a tribute to Alexander the Great—featured Charlie Mariano on sax and Herman van Booyen on drums, and was recorded at The Manor Studio with Giorgio Gomelsky producing. It's a powerful record, but one rooted in fusion and without the "Canterbury" charm. Oddly enough, Elton Dean of Soft Machine would join the band following Mariano's departure. A final album, Spiral Staircase (under the band name Sweet Okay Supersister), was released in 1974, with Stips and van Gest revisiting some of their earliest material; but after that, the band called it a day. Stips joined Dutch rockers Golden Earring for several albums (including the excellent To The Hilt) in the mid-to-late 70s.
