Supersister was a band from The Hague (the Netherlands), playing progressive rock with influences ranging from jazz to pop. The most predominant band members were Robert Jan Stips (keyboards, vocals), Sacha van Geest (flute), Marco Vrolijk (drums) and Ron van Eck (bass).

The band started as Sweet OK Sister in 1968 as a school band with singer and songwriter Rob Douw, who soon thereafter left. The remaining members continued as a more serious musical quartet under the name Supersister.

They debuted in 1970 with “Present from Nancy”, and hit the charts with the songs “She Was Naked”, “A Girl Named You”, and “Radio”. After three albums (Present from Nancy - 1970, To the Highest Bidder - 1971, and Pudding en Gisteren - 1972) van Geest and Vrolijk quit. The remaining crew, together with new members Charly Mariano (wind instruments) and Herman van Boeyen (drums) released the album “Iskander”, which was an even more jazz-rock oriented concept album based upon the life of Alexander the Great in 1973. In 1974 Stips and van Geest released a final album, “Spiral Staircase”, as “Sweet Okay Supersister”. This album marks the end of the band. « hide
