St. Louis Union


This Manchester-based sextet — Tony Cassidy on vocals, Alex Kirby playing tenor sax, Keith Millar on guitar, David Tomlinson on the organ, John Nichols on bass, and Dave Webb on the drum kit — made a significant splash by winning the 1965 Melody Maker Defeat Group Contest, and won a contract from English Decca. Their debut one, a cover from the Beatles’ “Gal,” produced No. 11 over the graphs in England, however they were not able to duplicate this feat in two even more tries that yr. The music group was eliminated by 1967, but do last long plenty of to surface in the 1966 feature film The Ghost Moves Gear, starring the Spencer Davis Group, where St. Louis Union mimed fairly convincingly with their variations of “I ACQUIRED My Satisfaction” and “Display Me Your British Tooth.” Their information are appreciated today, as are those of a large number of identical forgotten British rings of the time, as quintessential types of psychedelia and British freakbeat.
