One of Canada's most popular homegrown rock groups in the '60s, though they made no inroads to the rest of North America.
From the English-speaking community of Montreal, the group was very explicit in their desire to emulate the Rolling Stones, and most of their 1966-1968 singles (as well as their sole LP, from 1967) were in a raunchy R&B/blues-rock style. As songwriters their range was pretty limited, and much of their material consisted of covers or thin rewrites of popular blues riffs. Their most successful single, "1-2-5," gained small fame when it was reissued on one of the first Pebbles compilations of garage singles in the '70s. All of their material was reissued in the '80s. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi
