My formative years were the 1960s, and when anyone mentions the British Invasion of that era they rattle off all the usual suspects: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Animals, Dave Clark Five, Herman's Hermits.
But what about the bands who had only a handful of hits and then seemingly disappeared within a year--especially from the American pop music charts? What artist do you think deserved a longer run?
Here's two of my nominees:
1. The Honeycombs - First of all, "Have I the Right?" (No. 5, 1964) just rocked, and how cool was it that they had a girl drummer?
2. Unit Four plus Two - More folk than rock, but for me "Concrete and Clay" (No. 28, 1964) was one of the quintessential songs of the era.
Both of these artists were one-hit wonders, but the sixties playlist on my mp3 player wouldn't be complete without these two songs.
