In Crowd

Shaped in 1964, this London-based group was originally referred to as Four AND SOMETHING. They completed an individual, ‘Time Is definitely On My Part’, under this early name, before Keith Western (b. Keith Hopkins, 6 Dec 1943, Dagenham, Essex, Britain; vocals), Les Jones (lead acoustic guitar), John ‘Junior’ Wood (tempo acoustic guitar), Simon Alcott (bass) and Ken Lawrence (drums) used the In Group appellation in 1965. A sympathetic edition of ‘That’s How Solid My Love Is definitely’ brought the quintet a strike, while its b-side, ‘Items She Says’, demonstrated the group implementing a mod/pop artwork design. Les Jones was after that changed by ex-Syndicats’ guitarist Steve Howe (b. Stephen Adam Howe, 8 Apr 1947, Holloway, London, Britain), but two following singles didn’t emulate the In Audience’s early achievement. Former Green Fairies drummer Twink (b. John Alder, 1944, Colchester, Essex, Britain) joined up with the group on Lawrence’s departure. Simon Alcott fell out in March 1967 which prompted an interior realignment. The quartet fell their today anachronistic name and embraced the emergent underground picture as Tomorrow.
