Herman's Hermits was an internationally successful 60s British rock band, from Manchester, England, formed in 1963. Part of the British Invasion, their trademark simple, non-threatening, clean-cut "boys next door" image made them easier to listen to and more accessible than other British Invasion bands. Their first hit, "I'm Into Something Good", was produced by Mickie Most, reaching #1 in the UK (1963) and #13 in the US (1964). Other hits followed such as "Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter" (1965) and "I'm Henry VIII, I Am".

Many moons ago Dave met Andrew and Andrew met Dave, at about the same time. Both had things in common; an addiction of music, enjoying the occasion bite of jazz and a love of being slightly different from the rest. This then took the form in the first song 'The Moon is Made of Cheese'. With Dave on drums and Andrew on guitar/vocals they lacked one instrument, the bass. Conveniently after a few years Oli appeared; Dave saw him, Andrew saw him, both saw him playing the bass and playing it well, this was perfect so Oli was soon ushered into the band.
