Billy Hatton and The Fourmost

The amazing Billy Hatton talks about his time with The Fourmost during Liverpool’s Merseybeat days.

Guitarist/vocalist Brian O’Hara and best friend guitarist/vocalist Joey Bower formed The Two Jays in 1957 and did a six week tour of the Isle of Man. The group changed its name to the Four Jays in September 1959 when bass guitarist/singer Billy Hatton and drummer Brian Redman joined the group.

They made their debut at the Cavern Club on 1 March 1961, nearly three weeks before The Beatles. Rhythm guitarist/singer Mike Millward (ex-The Undertakers) joined the Four Jays in November 1961, followed by drummer/singer Dave Lovelady in September 1962. The band changed its name to The Fourmost in June 1962. On 30 June 1963, the group signed a management contract with Brian Epstein. This led to their being auditioned by George Martin and signed to EMI’s Parlophone record label. Find out more here.

Here’s Billy with The Fourmost performing 'Hello Little Girl'’

Cairns Street

ipod version

I was shocked to discover that the city council wants to demolish the houses around the Granby Triangle. It's a lovely area with a lot of potential.   The residents around Cairns Street and the Granby triangle are fighting to hold their community together and stop the council's  downgrading plans with initiatives such as holding a monthly street market where money raised is used to help beautify the street.  Support them if you can from here.
