OCTOBER 1965

 

Autumn 65   
New Zealand single release: Dave Miller & the Byrds – No Time / Love Is All I Need (Zodiac 1225)

Dave Miller: I was listening to a pile of import things at Eldred Stebbings’ place, and I heard this thing — No Time, it’s called, and it was by Dave, Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich, and it was their very first single, before they broke through. It was in 3/4 time, and it’s based around the chimes of a clock. And I thought “There it is — it’s got it’s selling feature” And in pockets it did good things for us as well.         (from Milesago.com)


October 1965   
Album release: Wayne Fontana & the Mindbenders – “Eric, Rick, Wayne, Bob” (Fontana STL 5257)
Their last and posthumous album, because their split was annouced on 6 October. And imitating the “Dave, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich” etiquette, they used their names as album title.

Next came “Cass, John, Michelle, Dennie” in 1966 (Mama’s & Papa’s), “From Hank, Bruce, Brian and John” (Shadows), “Chip, Dave, Alan, Rick” (Tremeloes), and “Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd.” (Monkees) all in 1967, “UlLeoGaMaxBe” (German group The Lords: Ulli, Leo, Gandy, Max & Bernd) in 1969, “Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young” in 1970, and finally The Who in 1971 with “Meaty, Beaty, Big & Bouncy”! Let’s not mention “Emerson, Lake and Palmer” and all those who followed, once it had become a habit.

Fri 29/10/65   
Single release: The Who – My Generation / Shout And Shimmy (Brunswick 05944)
A Mod Anthem that should have topped the British charts. But it only made #2, and consequently The Who never had a Number One in Britain. Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich were destined to suffer the same fate, until 1968.
