Artist Info

The Poets

Powered by Audioscrobbler™There are at least 6 bands called The Poets:

1) Band was discovered in it's native Scotland by Andrew Loog Oldham in 1964, signed to Decca that same year and to his Immediate Records label in 1966.
Members: George Gallacher (vocals) Hume Paton (lead guitar), Tony Myles (rhythm guitar), John Dawson (bass guitar), Alan Weir (drums), Hughie Nicholson (later Blue and Marmalade).
They had a minor hit in late 1964, but failed to have a major impact beyond Scotland. After numerous line-up changes they broke up in 1971. Most well-known track That's The Way It's Got To Be is on Nuggets II.
At that time, songs were released as EPs: I Am So Blue, I Love Her Still (I Am So Blue); I'll Cry With The Moon (B-side of That's The Way It's Got To Be); Wooden Spoon, In Your Tower (Wooden Spoon).

2) Danish band formed as Poets Of The Signature in Nyborg by Troels Bech and Lars K. Andersen. They played sophisticated - if sometimes slightly silly! - indie or artpop and released 3 albums as "The Poets" in the late Eighties and early Nineties. Following UK performances they got favorable reviews in NME, Sounds and Melody Maker, and all in all receiving a fair amount of critical acclaim in the Danish press as well. Despite being a good live band, they never had a breakthrough and thus Bech and Andersen pursued other careers. The former ice skating champion and fashion model Sanne Gottlieb was a member on the last two albums, as was the guitarist and keyboard player Frithjof Toksvig alias Ekko and Aud Wilken. The group in general produced their own material, but also worked with producers like Adam Peters, Ray Shulman and Nick Sansano. The group is known in the US and Canada as The Sealand Poets.

Discography: Poets Of The Signature (1984) Four Days In Florence (1987), The Poets (1990), Welcome To The Heathen Reserve (1992)

3) A New York-based hiphop-act, active years around 1990.

4) A contemporary Swedish pop group. Singing in their native language, this group has nevertheless released an album entitled "We Are The Poets".

5) Brooklyn-based 60's soul band who scored a number #2 R&B hit with "She Blew a Good Thing" in 1966. Fronted by singer Ronnie Lewis (who co-wrote "She Blew a Good Thing"), the 45 was released as the American Poets in the UK.

6) The obscure doo-wop group The Poets were five teenagers from Thomas Jefferson High School in Los Angeles, arguably the birthplace of doo-wop music (its alumni included Richard Berry of The Pharaohs and The Robins, Cornell Gunter of The Platters and The Coasters, and Curtis Williams of The Penguins). They recorded one single for Flash Records in 1958, “Dead” b/w “Vowels of Love”.
