(USA) KRLA BEAT Volume 2, Number 21, August 13, 1966: …DDBM&T – Tongue-Twisting Agony

Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich
Their name is a jawbreaker and the cause of the tongue-twisted agony to many an announcer . . . but it’s part and parcel of their success as one of Britain’s wildest and wittiest rock groups.
The group is currently hitting American shores with their second release, “Hideaway.” And they’ve signed to appear in a new motion picture. The film is MGM’s feature “The Blow-Up” which is presently being shot on location in Britain and in which the Dave Dee group will perform “Hold Tight;” their first release.
Their antics on stage have also built a huge following for Dave Dee and friends. Their “act” combines every element of show business – vocals, slapstick, gags, one-liners, instrumental music (or virtually anything else that may strike the group at a given moment!)
The group was “discovered” about a year ago when they appeared on the same bill with the Honeycombs. That group’s managers were so impressed by the boys that they signed Dave Dee. Since then, the Dave ensemble have brought their wild act to an increasing number of ballrooms, piers, shows and theaters all over England, Scotland and Wales.
The lead singer of this uniquely named congregation, Dave Dee, once considered becoming a plumber because he thought it was “dead interesting” (a phrase all the Dave Dee group like to use.) He soon found plumbing as a career “dear boring”.
Dave Dee personally is very direct. “I hate all this soul and Ravi Shankar bit,” he says. “I go to clubs to listen. Someone tells me its soul music. I can go out and come back five hours later, and it sounds like they are playing the same disc to me.”
Dave Dee, Dozy. Beaky, Mick and Tich won’t remain unknown in the U.S.A. very long.

Disc and Music Echo: Dave Dee – too sexy?
Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich have been asked to tone down their act after complaints that it is suggestive.
Several parents walked out of a concert at the ABC Theatre, Great Yarmouth, and complained about Dave’s jokes and act.
Said Dave: “We’ve been asked to modify the act before our next ABC venue at Blackpool on August 21.
“But we’re not changing it. We don’t think it is suggestive. It was only a few parents who had brought their youngsters to the show who complained. The kids didn’t mind at all.”
The theatre refused to comment when asked by Disc and Music Echo this week.
