Hiram G. Chucklebutty and The Fascination
Both songs (different versions) had also been recorded (and written) by Gary Walker & The Rain and featured on their No.1 LP released in Japan on Philips in 1968. No connection known. Otherwise known as Hiram G. Chucklebutty and the Fascination. Judging from a support slot to the Southampton band, Inflatable Toy (see entry), this band could have originated from either Southampton or Whitchurch in Hampshire
