Artist Biography by

A quartet comprising John Boulden, Eddie Gilbert, Colin Sandland and Peter Yerral, this UK pop band were most notable for their extravagant dress sense. Their 1965 debut single for Decca Records, ‘Buckle Shoe Stomp’, was promoted via visual apparel which included powdered wigs as well as the footwear described in its title. However, they proved more popular in Scandinavia than the UK, and eventually relocated to Sweden where they recorded a further single, ‘Ding Dong’, backed by a version of ‘Heartbreak Hotel’. That was to be their final release, although both sides of their two singles have resurfaced regularly on 60s beat compilations such as Search In The Wilderness, English Freakbeat Vol. 4 and Sixties Lost And Found.
