The Knickerbockers: Jerk And Twine Time

vinyl mono edition!
Although the Knickerbockers hailed from Bergenfield, New Jersey, anyone listening to the radio in early 1966 would have sworn that they were from Liverpool. That's when the band's overpoweringly infectious signature tune 'Lies' stormed the AM airwaves, convincing many stateside listeners that they were hearing a fab new Beatles single.

Jerk and Twine Time emphasizes the raw immediacy of the Knickerbockers' origins as a live band. Beyond the dance-craze anthem 'Jerk Town' and the venerable R&B instrumental 'Twine Time,' the set offers a memorable mix of the British Invasion, R&B and Motown covers that dominated the band's live repertoire at the time, with memorable renditions of the Zombies' 'She's Not There' and the Kinks anthems 'You Really Got Me' and 'All Day and All of the Night.' They also tear into the Kingsmen's garage novelty 'The Jolly Green Giant,' the Motown standard 'Money (That's What I Want)' and the R&B classics 'Land of 1000 Dances' and 'The 'In' Crowd.' Out of print in its original LP format for nearly half a century, this vintage '60s gem has been sourced from the original mono tapes and pressed on vinyl, with complete original cover art.

"The Knickerbockers"

The Knickerbockers formed in 1964 as the Castle Kings. The group — Buddy Randell from the Royal Teens (he co-wrote 'Short Shorts'), vocals and saxophone; Jimmy Walker, drums and vocals; John Charles, bass; and his brother Beau, guitar — took their name from Knickerbocker Avenue in their hometown of Bergenfield, New Jersey. Discovered by Jerry Fuller, a moderately successful singer and very suc-cessful writer (`Travellin' Man', 'Young World', 'Over You' and 'Young Girl') and producer (Union Gap and Ricky Nelson), they were signed to Challenge in 1965. They soon showed their skills as mimics when their Beatles pastiche, `Lies' shot into the Top Twenty in the winter of 1965. Ful-ler's production of the Randell-B. Charles composition was perfect, sounding more like the Beatles than the Beatles. A follow-up, 'One Track Mind', made the Top Fifty in 1966 but then failure set in and the group disbanded. Jimmy Walker briefly 'replaced' Bill Medley in the Righteous Brothers before attempting a solo career on Columbia and Buddy Randell tried the same on Uni and then Paramount. Cutts Knight, of mixed black/Indian parentage, was born in Fort Scott, Kansas, in 1945. He moved to New York in 1961 where his own records on a number of labels (Gulf, Shell, R.S.V.P.) have since been overshadowed by an asso-ciation with Jimi Hendrix. Jimit Knight's 'intimate bio-graphy' of Hendrix was published in 1974, but was not weil-received by critics or fans. Knight's best solo record was `That's Why' on Gulf, which bubbled under the Hot Hun-dred in 1961. Jimi Hendrix played and sang on tracks, by Curtis Knight and the Squires made in 1965 for R.S.V.P.
