One of the oldest blues bands to make it to the mid-'60s beat boom, the Beatmen started in 1960 and even played Hamburg like a lot of Liverpool bands. They had a sound similar to the Poets, and tackled unconventional American R&B like "You Can't Sit Down" (originally a Phil Upchurch Combo instrumental). They disappeared around the middle of the decade after a pair of singles for Pye failed to get them onto the charts.
