Artist Biography by

Formed in Andover, Hampshire, England, Ten Feet Five comprised Chris Britton, Chris Penfound, Dave Smith, Peter Staples and Johnny Walker. Their lone single for Fontana Records, ‘Baby’s Back In Town’ (1965), was an unremarkable folk-styled ballad, and the group would be all but forgotten but for the presence of guitarist Britton and bass player Staples. In 1965, they replaced Tony Mansfield and Dave Wright in another aspiring Andover act, the Troggs.
