The Sorrows are considered perhaps to be the archetypal freakbeat band. They were formed in 1963 in Coventry by Pip Whitcher.
Their hallmarks are boomy, raucous vocals, lightning fast guitar solos and frantic thudding drums. The musicianship is excellent, yet the band failed to achieve too much success, probably due to the fact that their brand of proto-punk rock and roll was simply too ahead of its time.
