One-time amateur boxer Chris Farlowe's musical career began with a skiffle group, before joining The Thunderbirds in the mid 1960s. Probably best remembered for his version of the Jagger-Richard composition 'Out Of Time' and 'Handbags And Gladrags', later being covered by Rod Stewart and The Stereophonics. In the 1970s he also sang in the hard rock supergroup Atomic Rooster.

Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair if you are going to a New Amen Corner concert because you''ll soon be in a 'Summer of Love' mood - their music is full of that feel good factor. The New Amen Corner have emerged in the last couple of years as the hottest band on the 60s circuit because of their ability to recreate so perfectly the sound and atmosphere of that era. Their power house live show has made them one of Europe's leading 60s revivalists.

Since originally forming as the Four Jays in 1959, the Fourmost have remained continuously active on the UK and European 60’s music scene. Whilst the band’s formation has changed over the years the look and sound of the band has remained authentic and true to its heritage, contributing to its success and longevity.
The Fourmost had its roots steeped in the eclectic 1960’s Mersey beat boom and was part of the Brian Epstein stable along with The Beatles, Billy J Kramer, Gerry and The Pacemakers, Cilla Black and others. The band has evolved from enjoying 1960’s chart hits such as Hello Little Girl (no.9) and A Little Loving (no.6) and less popular songs as I’m In Love (17), Baby I Need Your Lovin (24), Girls Girls Girls (33) and a cover of George Formby’s Auntie Maggie’s Remedy which failed to chart in the UK.
During the 1970’s and the early 1980’s like many of its peers, The Fourmost played mainly on the cabaret circuit as it struggled to compete for appeal with disco, funk, glam rock and punk.
Since the mid 1980’s The Fourmost has enjoyed a golden era as part of the wider 1960’s revival scene and now appear throughout the UK and Europe playing at theatre's, holiday parks and 60's festivals to a diverse fan base.
The Fourmost are one of the most authentic 1960's bands currently on the circuit today, from their Vox amps, Rickenbacker guitars and Ludwig drums down to their Italian made slim-fitted suits and Cuban heel boots.
