Known originally as the “Cimmerans”, this group first came to the attention of the North dancing public about 14 months ago. It was mainly as a result of the impression made on the public at dance-breaks that inspired their emergence as a semi-professional group.

At this stage Alex Stewart decided to take the group under management. It has been mainly under Alex’s direction that the group developed.

By mid-summer 1963 they were travelling and playing throughout the North-East corner of Scotland. Wider experience came in the Autumn, when they won the Scottish Section of the National Beat Championships and then went on to finish second in the finals in London. This combined with the group’s original style, has resulted in such an increase in their publicity that the group have been simply unable to meet demands for their services. And they have turned professional. They are shortly to cut their first disc, probably for E.M.I. Line up:
