Mighty Avengers

This short-lived UK quartet – Tony Campbell (b. 24 June 1944, Rugby, Midlands, Britain; lead acoustic guitar/vocals), Teddy Mahon (tempo acoustic guitar), Mike Linnell (bass/vocals) and ‘Biffo’ Beech (drums/vocals) – loved the patronage from the Moving Stones’ supervisor Andrew Loog Oldham. He created the group’s three singles, ‘Therefore Much In Like’, ‘Blue Converts To Gray’ and ‘(Strolling Through The) Sleepy Town’, each which had been exclusive Jagger/Richard tunes. This altruism was fuelled by Oldham’s desire to check the marketplace for the songwriters’ early attempts. ‘So Very much In Like’ peaked at quantity 46 in November 1964, but Oldham’s desire for the group waned when following offerings didn’t chart. The songs remain interesting types of Oldham’s personal debt to manufacturer Phil Spector. ‘Blue Transforms To Gray’ afterwards became popular in the hands of Cliff Richard in 1966.
