The UK group's gimmick centres. around their drummer Honey is the only female Ringo-type in the.Qld Country. -. tT yJ'J Hal David and Burt Bacha-rach art. to my mind, the finest songwriters in the pop field south of the border. Tbey are also Very talented arrangers. Latest example' of their work comes from Lea Jean-sea, a newcomer who does sa ex c e 1 1 e a t vocal fob oa "'There's Always Something (There to Remind Me of You." a catchy beaw with a variety of musical switches. This Johnson could preside over the hit lists.

Then there is Spencer Lloyd Mason, another wealthy manager bow beginning to break out nationally with The Mo-Joe, who have recently had their first Top II hit "Every, thing's Alright" and now have ai big a following on Merseyside as The Beatles and Searchers had little more than a year ago. They, like The Beatles, served aa apprenticeship at Hamburg's Star Club, and share similar interests sa art and writing.'

It's another big Beetle. - The tarns provide an unusual sound on their -latest out-. Ing, "Hey Girl. Don't Bother Me." which features the group prominently with only rhythm accompaniment. But this won't bother anyone unless the turntable pilots get fly. - Doona Means Heartbreak" Is .a great British ditty from Jeaany Saadaa which will probably go unrecognized be- - cause the name Isn't known, . the song unusual and the fact that Johnny is not related to .
