The Four Pennies

This Blackburn, Lancaster beat group comprised Lionel Morton (14 August 1942, Blackburn, Lancashire, England; vocals/tempo acoustic guitar), Fritz Fryer (b. David Roderick Carnie Fryer, 6 Dec 1944, Oldham, Britain; lead electric guitar), Mike Wilsh (b. 21 July 1945, Stoke-on-Trent, Britain; bass) and Alan Buck (b. 7 Apr 1943, Brierfield, Lancashire, Britain; drums). They have scored a significant UK #1 1 strike in 1964 with ‘Juliet’ – a Morton-penned ballad that was originally the b-side from the much less immediate ‘Inform Me Female’, which got a stark simpleness that improved its plaintive characteristics. The quartet liked three further Best 20 entries with ‘I DISCOVERED The Hard Method’, ‘Dark Female’ (both 1964) and ‘Until It’s TIME AND ENERGY TO Move’ (1965), but were not able to sustain an extended profession. Fryer, having briefly fronted a fresh work, Fritz, Mike and Mo, afterwards became an effective record manufacturer, while Morton, who wedded celebrity Julia Foster, produced frequent performances in kids’s television programs.
