    Try the Roulettes “Soon you’ll be Leaving Me”
    (Adam Faith’s backing Band)

    I recommend Kontiki by Cotton Mather from the mid 90’s very much in the Beatly vein (Revolver era) nevertheless a great album in its own write

    Check out songs by Atlanta based power pop group, The Raves. Tracks span the 70s to early 80s and fit your website perfectly.
