The Pebbles were a Belgian group who had some big international hits in the 60's. I don't think this was one of those but it's a pretty fun little Pop-Garage number. Love the photos of monsters in the background! Read The Pebbles story at the Belgian Pop & Rock Archives
The Motions were the TOP Mod Dutch band, featuring pre-Shocking Blue leader Robbie Leuwen on lead guitar... They were regular visitors in Paris alongside fellow countrymen the Outsiders, so as such they were invited to perform on quite a few French TV programs...
Right prior to becoming arch UK Psych band, Art, then the more reknowned late sixties Heavy band Spooky Tooth, the VIPs were a very Popular mod band active in the French Club circuit... hence, a lot of footage of the band comes exclusively from French stages and TV!
Top Dutch Mod band the Motions were frequent visitors in Paris, playing at the famous Locomotive club like their fellow countrymen, the Outsiders... They were like the "Small Faces" of Holland only they weren't small and spung out of the Beat scene; they featured future Shocking Blue leader and guitar hero, Robbie Van Leuwen (Exclusive French Tv footage!)
Modsters The Thoughts had the hit with this Ray Davies' composed Beat classic, inspired by the Shel Talmy produced 1966 novel of the same name : "All Night Stand" written by Thom Keyes, about life on the road for a typical Liverpool Beat band... This is another exclusive Footage from the incredible rich well of 60's French TV!

Pre-Fleetwood Mac band, the Kinetic are of course famous for their Pop-Mod Psych classic: "Suddenly Tomorrow"...
