Not to be confused with Big Jim Sullivan and Brian Bennett’s Krewkats, the European-based, Birmingham rock ‘n’ roll outfit of the same name took on the mantle in 1963 having received Sullivan’s blessing earlier in London during the summer of 1962. At the end of 1962, the musicians became French singer Dick Rivers’s backing group and they also recorded two French E.P.s under their own name.

During the early-mid 1960s, the band worked extensively in Germany, most notably in Hamburg where they performed at the famous Top Ten Club. The band also featured for a short time pre-Mooody Blues Ray Thomas and Mike Pinder.
