A.k.a. Simon Posthuma and Marijke Koger, who started designing clothes and posters in Amsterdam around 1964, where they had an 'alternative' boutique called Trend. On their many trips abroad they got acquainted with Eastern music and they eventually landed in London, where they designed clothes and record sleeves for the Hollies and Cream (amongst others). With Englishman Barry Finch and ex-colleague Josje Leeger from Amsterdam they formed The Fool in 1967 (named after the Beatles number, "Fool on the Hill"). The Fool released a few singles and an LP (produced by Graham Nash) which did quite well, particularly in America, following a U.S. tour in 1969. In 1970, The Fool split up; Simon & Marijke continued recording as a duo.
