The official Speedtwins website

Speedtwins; a Dutch punk/rock/new-wave band that was active during the late 70’s and early 80’s.

One of the original initiators of the band was Jodie Daniël, a British singer/songwriter and former (folk) street musician. Travelling across Europe he ended up living in Arnhem, Netherlands when punk made its shocking entrance in the underground music scene.

The name for the band was taken from the classic British motorcycle ‘Triumph Speed Twin’, as motorbikes were Jodie’s obsession (he owned several classic bikes).

Tragically that very same obsession proved to be fatal; Jodie’s life ended after a motorcycle accident.

This site is an effort to keep Jodie's spirit, songs and lyrics alive…
