from salinas, california, the quintet known as the e-types didn't take their name from the british sports car of the same name, but their interest in presenting trhemselves as "english-types", shortened to the nane they took for themselves. the brothers bob and jody wence, lead vocalist and keyboardist, bassist danny monigold, lead guitarist don shepard and drummer reggie shafer all came from the salad bowl and formed the group in 1965. after winning several "battles of the bands", hosted by various radio stations in the greater central california area like KMBY and KLIV, they gained enough renown that in 1966 they signed their first of several record deals. "I can't do it"/ "long before was the first, released initially on the Link label (it also released a kids' single based on the tv show, Buckaroo 500) in april. the record was subsequently released for national distribution by Dot records. neither release did much, although it and subsequent releases by the group did give an engineering credit to future three dog night producer, Richard Podolor. their second single, "Love of the Loved" was released in october 1966 on the even smaller "sunburst" label.

the song was written by paul mccartney and used by the beatles as a demo for their ill-fated "decca audition" on new years day, 1962. cilla black had a minor hit of it in 1964. their third single was the one that should've done it for them, had it not been for producer and former four preps member ed cobb completely ignoring the promotion of it. "Put the Clock back on the Wall", released in the late spring of 1967, was released on the capitol records subsidiary, Tower. the label was known as a kind of garage haven, what with the standells offerings and san jose's Chocolate Watchband also having releases on the label.

for the b-side, the song "4th street" (NOT 14th Street, as several sources say). the e-types final single was released in the late fall of 1967 on another capitol subsidiary, Uptown. the a side was "Back to me" and the b was "Big city". both songs were penned by studio songwriter and musician, randy barlow. throughout the group's career, the e-types did very well in concerts, what with their tight harmonies and extremely proficient instrumentality, but shortcomings in management and promotion led to the group's disbanding. their first single was re-released on sundazed back in 1997 and is still available, along with a sundazed-released compilation cd, "introducing the e-types" a successful reunion in 1997 also spawned a cd of new releases, "chase the moon", available on bob wence's website. several of the members get together occasionally to do shows at various places around the country.

they still sound great. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
