The In-Sect ‎– Introducing The In-Sect Direct From London (1965)



The In-Sect
The In-Sect (The Flies) grew out of an East London band called the Rebs, and in 1965 they recorded a British Invasion exploitation album under the name of the In-Sect, all but one of the songs on the LP being covers of contemporary hits. They are released three singles during their recording career and in 1965 the band recorded a British Invasion-exploitation album on RCA Records, "Introducing the In-Sect Direct from London", under the name In-Sect, with all but one of the tracks on the piece being cover versions of contemporary pop hits.. 
 Robin Hunt, who had to go to hospital, was unofficially replaced by Phil Chesterton and John Hollis. When Hunt recovered, the band continued as  No Flies On Us But and eventually The Flies.By the end of 1966 they were signed to Decca and were recording as the Flies, though they issued only a couple of singles for the label.



A really interesting artefact this group are ac=tuallt the UK group 'The FLIES'. They recorded this album under their present name (in 65) name of IN-SECT to try and conquer the 
British - besotted American market. This is strong garage and beat music!. As the Flies they made some classic freakbeat singles for RCA and were a mainstay of the UK underground scene.

Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
