From: Calcutta, India
Elli was actually Elli Meyer who was originally from Calcutta, India, being born there in 1946. In the early 60s, he relocated to London, England to start work as a painter and decorator. By 1962, he had already began getting involved in the burgeoning music scene, singing in various different bands.
In early 1967, he recorded and released his one and only 45 (the jazzy 'Never Mind' b/w 'I'll Be Looking Out For You') on the Parlophone label, which had the misfortune of being issued on the exact same day as The Beatles' 'Penny Lane' single, causing it to be overshadowed by the Fab Four and thus to sell poorly. Unfortunately another official release was not to be, but Elli continued recording demos into 1970.
