WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Fool were a Dutch design collective and band in the psychedelic style of art in British popular music in the late 1960s. The group was named in reference to the Fool tarot card.

Josje Leeger and Marijke Kooger (1965)

The original members were Dutch artists Simon (Seemon) Posthuma and Marijke Koger, who were discovered by photographer Karl Ferris among the hippie community on the Spanish island of Ibiza in 1966. He took photographs of clothes they designed, and sent them to London where they were published in The Times. Ferris took The Fool back to London, and together they opened a studio, with the Dutch artists producing clothes and art, and Ferris pursuing photography. Barry Finch and artist Josje Leeger (Yosha) joined later.

Works[edit]

Their work includes:

The Fool's best known artworks are those they created for the Beatles in 1966–67. They include:

  • the clothes worn in the 1967 television broadcast of "All You Need Is Love";
  • the huge 3-story mural painted in psychedelic colours on the facade of the Beatles' Apple Boutique in London's Baker Street (which also stocked their creations; months later, the mural was painted over by civic order, due to protests from other local businesses, before the shop failed);
  • decoration to John Lennon's piano and one of his Gibson acoustic guitars
  • decoration to George Harrison's Mini car and his bungalow Kinfauns in Surrey, as well as several of Harrison's guitars, but not his Fender Stratocaster known as "Rocky", Harrison painted this himself.
  • the set design for Joe Massot's 1968 movie Wonderwall.
  • decoration to Paul McCartney's piano (that he still uses on stage)

After moving to Los Angeles, the Fool created the largest mural in the world at the time (1968) on the exterior of the Aquarius Theatre for a production of the Broadway musical Hair, by invitation of producer Michael Butler. Simon and Marijke went on to paint other theaters where Hair was playing, in San Francisco, Seattle and Chicago. Thereafter, The Fool split up, Simon, Barry and Josje eventually going back to Amsterdam while Marijke remained in Los Angeles to continue her artistic endeavors.

Musical career[edit]

The Fool also released an eponymous album The Fool in 1968, in the psychedelic folk style, produced by Graham Nash. It was re-released in 2005.

As Seemon & Marijke they released another album called Son of America on A & M records, also produced by Graham Nash, in collaboration with Booker T. Jones, in 1969.[citation needed]

Seemon & Marijke recorded a third album called Mediterranean Blues produced by Booker T. Jones in his Homegrown Studio in 1972. Their second single "I saw you" was a hit in the Netherlands.[citation needed]
