The Fourmost sensational 60s band has it’s roots steeped in the eclectic Mersey beat boom. It was part of Brian Epstein’s stable along with Beatles, Billy J Kramer, Gerry and Pacemakers and others. Evolving from 1960’s chart hits such as Hello Little Girl (no.9) and A Little Loving (no.6). Less popular songs such as Baby I Need Your Lovin’, Here There and Everywhere and a cover of George Formby’s Auntie Maggie’s Remedy which can still be heard. Since mid 1980’s this 60s party band has enjoyed a golden era as part of a wider 1960’s revival scene.
The Fourmost Sensational 60s
It now appears throughout UK and Europe playing at theatres, holiday parks and 60’s festivals to a diverse fan base. During 1970’s and early 1980’s, like many of its peers, this band played mainly on a cabaret circuit as it struggled to compete for appeal with disco, funk, glam rock and punk. Fourmost 60s party band is one of our most authentic 1960’s bands currently on a circuit today, from their Vox amps and Ludwig drums down to their Italian made slim fitted suits and Cuban heel boots. Here we have an English Merseybeat band that recorded in 1960s. Their biggest UK hit single was “A Little Loving” in 1964. “A Little Loving”, written by Russ Alquist, reached Number 6 in UK Singles Chart in mid 1964.
The Fourmost Tracks
From then on, none of this group’s singles cracked Top 20 in UK. On this group’s only sixties album, First and Fourmost, from September 1965, they covered Jackie DeShannon’s “Till You Say You’ll Be Mine”. Other tracks included “My Block” sung by Hatton and written by Jimmy Radcliffe, Carl Spencer and Bert Berns (originally a hit for the Chiffons in 1963).
Millward sang a re-make of “The in Crowd” which featured brass section from Sounds Incorporated and Hatton sang two cover versions of Little Richard’s “The Girl Can’t Help It” and “Heebie-Jeebies”. The band appeared in 1965 film, Ferry Cross the Mersey and on soundtrack album of same name singing ‘I Love You Too’ (which appeared in two totally differing versions mono to stereo). (Wikipedia)
