Herman's Hermits

Herman's Hermits was an internationally successful 60s British 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".

Okta Logue

As Okta Logue prepare for the release of their third studio album the influence of their own side projects is becoming apparent. Rollergirls; powerchording energetic postrock and the Benno Herz Band; a somewhat more relaxed indi folk creation are being gently folded into the Progressive, Psychedelic tones of Okta Logue to create something quite unique. Okta Logue was formed by Benno Herz, Robi Herz and Philip Meloi 3 years ago as Zapphire Okta Logue but, with the addition of the fourth member Nicolai Hildebrandt, the band found their sound and a new name.

The Move

The Move evolved from several mid 1960s Birmingham based groups, including Carl Wayne & The Vikings, The Nightriders & The Mayfair Set. The group's name seems to refer to the move various members of these bands made to form the group. Beside Roy Wood, the original members of the Move were drummer Bev Bevan, bassist Chris "Ace" Kefford, vocalist Carl Wayne & guitarist Trevor Burton. Their first single, 'Night of Fear' was released in 1966 and was the first in a line of memorable hits penned chiefly by Roy Wood.
