Formed in 1963 by singer Barbara Routley, a farmers daughter, and guitarist Frank Hancock. Paul and Ray joined in 1964, Richard was from the Midlands.
They played all over Cornwall, including a memorable couple of gigs alongside The Shivering Sands in Roche. Both bands were quite unique at the time, having girl singers. It was especially unsuall to have two girl fronted bands on the same bill!
In late 1964 they relocated to Portsmouth playing the south coast clubs. This continued, with some personel changes, until mid-1965. The band then toured through Germany in 1965/66. By this stage most of the original members had moved on. Throughout this time they kept in touch with Colin Gregory who wrote about their adventures in in his Postscript column in the local paper.
