Fascinating band, quite talented, the Jump! CD is a great listen. I Take It We're Through was a nice Eastern-tinged 45. if only they'd had producers like Shel Talmy instead of Joe Meek? Nothing of their brief collaboration with David Bowie in early '67 got issued at the time; a 2013 EP on Acid Jazz label includes a bizarre 'UK schoolgirl' version of 'Venus In Furs' by The Velvets, retitled Toy Soldier, as well as a cover of Waiting For The Man, thans to Bowie cherishing an early acetate copy of the 'VU & Nico' album).
When Bowie left again, the Riot Squad somehow soldiered on for two years, notching up two tracks on Music For Pleasure's budget LP Hits 67, including a cover of the Beatles classic Penny Lane. There's a parallel with Marc Bolan briefly joining John's Children in 1967 at least resulting in psych classics on 45 like Midsummer Night's Scene en Desdemona.
