The group were formed in London in 1959. They became established by playing constantly in either London or Hamburg collecting fans on the way. In 1962 they had their first single release “Air Travel” and although it did not chart it helped in getting them noticed and Columbia records duly signed them.
They released 5 singles all of which were not successful although critically acclaimed. In 1955 Chris signed for Andrew Loog Oldham’s record label and cut the international hit “Out Of Time” which was written by Jagger / Richards and produced by Mick Jagger. He released a few singles after, this but only had chart success with “Handbags And Gladrags”. The group split in 1968.
