RARE BEAT - GARAGE ROCK AND PSYCHEDELIC
THE ATTACK
Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

The Attack evolved out of a group called The Soul System. They were signed to Don Arden's Galaxy Entertainment and he hoped that they would emulate the success of the Small Faces. They released a single called Please Phil Spector on the Philips label but later releases were on Decca. Later singles looked for a more commercial direction with Hi Ho Silver Lining and Created by Clive competing with other versions by Jeff Beck and The Syn respectively. However, the b-sides moved in a more experimental and psychedelic direction, Colour of My Mind being a notable example. Hi Ho Silver Lining lost the chart battle to Jeff Beck but made the press as the Attack claimed Beck had stolen it from them. The b-side Anymore Than I Do was adapted by John Peel for one of his Radio London jingles. However, there was some disquiet in the band. Dave O''List joined The Nice while Alan Whitehead became a member of Marmalade. Harold was later replaced by Jim Pittman-Avory who himself was later part of Thunderclap Newman.
