They were originally from Ealing, where they formed as the Four Macs in 1962. Spotted by Jackie Trent in Manchester doing cabaret, they issued three singles on Pye I believe of which 'Where Did We Go Wrong' was the first (7N 17140). They also did 'Spanish Harlem'. They were David Booker (gtr), Pete Durham (pno), Tommy McQuarter (bass) and Ron Brown (dms). No note anywhere of any US issue, but WDWGW can be found on Ripples Vol 1 on Sanctuary.

He later led the Hollywood Argyles road band, and I first met him when they played Milwaukee in early '65. Supposedly, he was one of the original Argyles. He is on the LP, but I don't know about "Alley Oop". His instrument is sax, which, of course, does not appear on AO, but I think he said he sang background or something. I ran across him about 14-15 years ago when he came into a club in Gardena where some friends were playing. gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
