From: Liverpool, England

This Liverpool ensemble formed in 1967 and issued one 1968 single ('Love You Forever' b/w the outstanding 'Sycamore Sid') with the endorsement and assistance of Paul McCartney of The Beatles. Members included Paul Tennant (guitar, vocals), Dave Rhodes (lead guitar), Dave Slater (bass), Ted Hesketh (drums) and Tim Wells (keyboards).

The band's name was chosen by the Fab Four's manager Brian Epstein, and John Lennon's love for their work was the main reason why they were signed to Apple Publishing. One rumor that continues to perpetuate about this group is that 'Sycamore Sid' was written to pay homage to Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd. This rumor is false, per a TWOS interview with Paul Tennant, with the song rather being written about John Mayall, who reportedly had a tree house!

Artist information sources include: The book, 'Tapestry of Delights Revisited' by Vernon Joynson. A special thank you to Paul Tennant for his important contribution to this article.
