The Malibooz - (I Won't Be) Too Young

The Malibooz - (I Won't Be) Too Young

Walter Egan and John Zambetti started The Malibooz back in 1964. They reunited in 1981 for the album "Malibooz Rule!" on Rhino. On "(I Won't Be) Too Young", they are joined by Lindsey "Bitchin" Buckingham. Dean Torrance is also on backing vocals. It's got some surf music moves in the vocals but it sounds like prime Mirage-era Lindsey to me.

Casper Giles McCloud - "Why Oh Why?" on Youtube

My first post was about Caspar Giles McCloud. Since then the "Messin' Around" single was reissued by Vinyl Countdown. Zac Webb has dug up a video clip of Caspar doing an unreleased song "Why Oh Why". I hope he can dig up a studio recording!

Nimbo - Maisie Jones / Forget Her

Nimbo - Maisie Jones

Nimbo - Forget Her

Nimbo sounds exactly like Badfinger on this 1971 single. The harmonies are very Pete & Tommy and the upfront bass playing very McCartney. Nimbo released two 45's on Pye. I haven't yet found a copy of their second 45, a cover of The Bee Gees' "When The Swallows Fly" b/w "Noticeingly By". After the two singles on Pye, they switched to the Motown subsidiary Mowest and changed their name to The Rockits for another couple of 45's. Nimbo members John Wilson and Dave Powell then joined up with Bob Jackson and Tommy Evans of Badfinger to form The Dodgers. Tommy must've heard "Maisie Jones".
