The Fourmostroup for

 

The group formed in late '59 and were originally called The Blue Jays, then The Four Jays and then The Four Mosts. One of the leading groups on Liverpool's club circuit, their name was shortened by Brian Epstein when he took over their management in 1963. They immediately reaped the benefits of being a part of Epstein's stable by getting better bookings, a contract with Parlophone Records where they were recorded by George Martin. They were also given two Lennon/McCartney songs not used by The Beatles for their first two singles.

They were featured in the film "Ferry Cross The Mersey" - which consolidated their position as one of the leading Liverpool groups.

The Fourmost lost some of their momentum when Millward, was taken ill with throat cancer in '64, he recovered from that only to be struck down by leukaemia. When he was unable to carry on George Peckham was brought in from Earl Royce's Olympics as a replacement.

After the hits dried up they settled into the night-club/cabaret circuit.
