The Teenbeats

A quintet from Hastings, Britain, the Teenbeats were among the better rings on Britain’s later ’70s mod revival picture. Their timing was impeccable, Huggy Leaver (vocals), Ken Copsey (business lead electric guitar), Paul Thomas (tempo electric guitar, vocals), Eddie Mays (bass), and Dave Blackman (drums) producing their debut just like the mod revival was gathering vapor — they further stoked the fires using a killer cover from the Troggs’ 60’s strike “I CANNOT Control Myself”, and implemented this up with the better still “Strength OF THE Nation”. That they had the attitude, the appearance, as well as the audio (recalling but hardly ever, ever mimicking the Who, the Troggs et al) but in some way never rated reducing an entire LP, at least in the eye from the record businesses of that period, but their tunes managed to get onto many a mod revival compilation, lately Castle Information’ 2003 Mod Revival Era: Time TO USE IT. They split up around 1981, and so are pretty well memorialized around the March from the Mods website.
