The Applejacks!



The Applejacks were part of the British beat group scene with a Lennon-McCartney castaway to their name ("Like Dreamers Do"). Perhaps part of their cool factor is the fact that they had a female bassist (just as The Honeycombs had a female drummer)! Read more about Megan Davies, here. "Tell Me When" was the band's first single and an instant hit. I love the photo above (very apt, with the apples and all) but sadly that "Special Price" sticker spoils it!!!

HOORAY FOR GIRL BASSISTS! :)
I didn't know there were any in mainstream pop acts all the way back then! She is awesome, even if she was just a gimmick for their otherwise boring look-alike-guys-in-mod-suits band :P

I sell stuff for bass players at my store btw...

Every band should have a female bassist. ;o)
I reckon the price stickers is cool as it is indicative of the era as much as the album artwork etc.
I am researching The Honeycombs for my website www.thehoneycombs.info I'm starting to want to find out more about the Applejacks now as well.
