The group started as semi-pro with skiffle, R & B and popular 'covers' in late 1956 and continued until autumn 1959. They once practiced/rehearsed on the Woolwich Ferry. Group members (1957-59) were Mike Woollard (lead guitar/occasional vocals), Mike Cohen (washboard/drums), Mike Tobin (guitar/ vocals) and Arnie Coffer (guitar/vocals) . Cohen, Tobin, and Coffer were all students at the London Polytechnic (Regent Street), Woollard (the eldest member of the Group) earned real money as a draughtsman. Read more on Last.fm

Played regular gigs mainly around the West End (Soho) coffee bars and clubs and south London including cinemas, jazz clubs, and even a film producers party in Surrey. Asked to audition at very short (few hours) notice by the BBC for TV's pop rave 'Six Five Special' programme (1958). Members of the the Group did all eventually make it to the Wood Lane Studios but absolutely no practice time/rehearsal time possible at rushed arrival and therefore performance was not up to scratch (and their usual high performance standard). Last gig was performance at Club event in Islington, north London (1959).
