Here’s the deal. They looked ridiculous, embarrassing really, but had a load of great singles – and Mark Lindsay wrote just about every one, either solo or with someone. Terry Melcher produced (Wikipedia him for a real story). Great songs are great songs. I’d actullly forgotten how much I loved this one – until hearing it on BBC Radio 2. Pathetic, a band who only ever had hits in the US gets more airplay in other countries than here.
