Tinkerbells Fairydust was the name of a Britihs pop group in the late 1960s, (originally named The Rush) who hailed from East London and recorded under the Decca label. Although they never enjoyed much chart success in England they did manage to reach the number one slot in Japan in 1967 with hit single - 2010 a minor-keyed piece of harmony psych, with Wa-Wa Vox Continental, Mellotron flutes, Spanish style Guitar, and Choir-like Vocals.The song lyrics eluded to the year twenty ten (still 43 years away in 1967) and where the world would be then "Twenty Ten is three and forty years away, will we still be walking together, will we still have something to say..."
Signed to Manager Don Arden the various band members were Steve Maher (Guitar Vocals), Stuart Attride (Guitar/Keys Vocals), Gerry Wade (Bass Vocals), Barry Creasy (Drums Vocals), Chas Wade (Drums Vocals), Eileen Woodham (Hammond Vocals) and Dave Church (Vocals). For a short time the band worked with a young Jeff Lynne (of ELO Fame) and released one of his songs "Follow me follow" which was on the B side of single "Sheilas back in town" (From Wikipedia)
The name of this late-'60s British band might unwittingly lead some collectors to believe they were another in the hordes of dainty U.K. psychedelic pop groups. However, though a few of their tracks did indeed fall into that category, for the most part they recorded equivalents to American sunshine pop. In fact, they filled out their repertoire with some close, unimaginative covers of late-'60s, lightweight, U.S. harmony pop/rock hits. The group's more psychedelic offerings attract the most interest, although there weren't too many of those to choose from since the band only issued three singles. All of them appeared on Decca in 1967-69, the highlight being the 1968, 45 rpm "Twenty Ten," a nice minor-keyed piece of harmony-laden light psych, with soft wah-wah guitars and foggy organ. The B-side of their first single, "In My Magic Garden," was slightly more middle-of-the-road psychedelia-influenced harmony pop, and not bad.In 1969, a self-titled Tinkerbells Fairydust album was assembled at Decca, and included four of the six songs that had appeared on their singles, as well as nine other tracks. Although this got as far as the test pressing stage, it never did get released. It did get issued on CD in the late 1990s, and though it does include "Twenty Ten" and "In My Magic Garden," the majority of it's a disappointment, emphasizing light harmony pop-psych numbers that make them out to be the British equivalent of American groups such as the Happenings. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide
