Herman's Hermits

Профиль:
Herman's Hermits are an English beat rock band formed in Manchester in 1964, originally called Herman & the Hermits. Harvey Lisberg discovered them and signed on as their manager. He sent a plane ticket to Mickie Most so that he could come up from London to see the band play in Bolton, and Most became the group's record producer, controlling the band's output. He emphasised a simple, non-threatening, clean-cut image. This helped Herman's Hermits become hugely successful in the mid-1960s.

Their first hit was a cover of Earl-Jean's "I'm into Something Good" which reached number one in the UK Singles Chart and number 13 in the US in late 1964. They never topped the British charts again, but they had two number one songs on the US Billboard Hot 100 with "Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter" and "I'm Henry the Eighth, I Am". These songs were aimed at a US fan base, with Peter Noone (singer) exaggerating his Mancunian accent.

Their US records were released on the MGM label, which often featured their musical performers in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer films. The Hermits appeared in several MGM movies, including When the Boys Meet the Girls (1965) and Hold On! (1966). They also starred in the film Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter (1968) and appeared in the 1965 anthology film Pop Gear.

The group appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, The Dean Martin Show, and The Jackie Gleason Show. Continued success in the US proved elusive beyond 1967, although they had as many Top Ten hits in Britain in 1967 through 1970. They recorded their final album of the 1960s Rock 'n' Roll Party, and Peter Noone left the band in 1971. Herman's Hermits reunited in 1973 to headline a British invasion tour of the US, culminating with a performance at Madison Square Garden and an appearance on The Midnight Special. A later lineup with lead guitarist Derek Leckenby and drummer Barry Whitwam opened for the Monkees on their 80s reunion tours of the US. The band continues to tour today, with Whitwam as the only remaining member from the original lineup.

Herman's Hermits (no, there's nobody named Herman in the band) arrived in the heyday of the ‘60s British Invasion, offering up a fresh-faced variation of The Fab Four's Merseybeat magic. But while they became stars on the strength of a string of endearing novelty numbers and pop tunes as ingenious as they were infectious, the golden-voiced Peter Noone and his Manchester mob were true blue rock ‘n' rollers too. They had no trouble covering The Kinks and turning out tunes that amped up both the guitars and the arch attitude. Away from their iconic hits, Herman's Hermits' lesser-known ‘60s songs appear split between the Beatles-y giddiness of “Hold On,” the beat-group innocence of “Years May Come Years May Go,” and the comic fun of George Formby's “Leaning on a Lamp Post.” The heart of the group's sound is their affection for Buddy Holly's thoughtful ballads, as in the melancholy “The End of the World” and “East West.”
