The beginning of the "Swinging London" pop explosion of the 1960's saw these two good looking Mod-to-the-max boys working as trainees with Vidal Sassoon and singing as a hobby, to some considerable reaction. When the dust settled, they had a record deal, and their stepfather, the powerful agent Harold Davidson (The Who's agent and Frank Sinatra's best mate among many other achievements!) stepped in to make sure that if the boys were doing this, it was being done properly, hence their seeming omnipresence for a while on pop and non-pop TV! Though their much compiled (in Germany anyway) singles could be variable, their two albums, unusually for the time, were adventurous, consistent slices of Swinging London pop - heavy on the just-pre-psych trickery and fuzz boxes, a perfect snapshot of a pop moment. With songs by vital new young writers they'd met (among them Cat Stevens, The Hollies and The Yardbirds) and production by such as eccentric Searchers drummer/leader Chris Curtis and Hollywood songwriter Sharon Sheeley these are pretty vital pop artefacts which capture London '66-'67 as well as any obscure freakbeat acetate... yep, that good... and they were better dressed too. A rediscovered classic that were staring us in the face all the time!
