JUNIOR'S EYES
Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

Mick Wayne's first group was 'The Outsiders', with Jimmy Page on guitar. After recording one single for Decca Records in 1965, the Outsiders broke up the following year at which point Wayne joined Hull musicians The Hullaballoos, replacing Ricky Knight briefly before they too broke up. Wayne next joined the 'Bunch of Fives' (including ex- Pretty Things drummer Viv Prince) during 1966 and this band evolved into 'The Tickle'. After the break-up of the Tickle, Mick Wayne formed Junior's Eyes in early 1968. They soon recorded a debut single with the help of pianist Rick Wakeman and producer Tony Visconti. The trio added singer Graham 'Grom' Kelly and (briefly) organist John Redfern in late 1968 and began work on an album. Battersea Power Station was released in June 1969. That same month, Mick Wayne and Rick Wakeman were among the guest musicians who recorded David Bowie's breakthrough hit "Space Oddity". For the follow-up Space Oddity album recorded between June and September 1969, Bowie and producer Visconti were backed by a new line-up of Junior's Eyes. Wayne had also helped record James Taylor's debut album between July and October 1968. They played their final gig on 3 February 1970, supporting Bowie. Honk and Renwick formed Quiver, but Honk soon left. Renwick continued with the band, which later joined up with the Sutherland Brothers, and he later recorded with Mike + The Mechanics and both Roger Waters and the David Gilmour-led Pink Floyd, as well as releasing a number of solo albums. Mick Wayne left for the USA after Junior's Eyes to back Joe Cocker. Mick Wayne died in a fire at his producer's house in 1994 when he was working on his comeback solo album.
