Fri 4/06/65   
Single release: Ten Feet Five – Baby’s Back In Town / Send Me No More Lovin’ (Fontana TF 578)
This Andover group included Pete Staples and Chris Britton, later joining the Troggs, with Chris Penfound, Dave Smith and John Walker.

John [Walker] recalls the band supporting Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Titch on one of these great shows in 1965 just after Ten Feet Five’s only single release on the (Philips) Fontana label. The disc was “Baby’s back in town/Send me no more loving” but it didn’t exactly storm up the charts as hoped although it was a proud moment for the lads and their many fans.
