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

The name The Smoke was chosen as the band came from Yorkshire "the smoke" was a term for London. They had been supported in their quest for stardom by Alan Brush who was a self-made millionaire and gravel pit owner. The Smoke released a single as The Shots in 1965, this was unsuccessful but My Friend Jack became a minor hit in the UK. The first line "My friend Jack eats sugarlumps" instantly got the record banned as sugar lumps were a main vehicle for delivering LSD. However, the band was more successful on the continent, particularly in Germany, and on the pirate radio stations. The band recorded three singles under the name Chords Five as well as a few further tracks as The Smoke in the late 1960s and early 1970s. However, these did not even match the minor success of My Friend Jack. Geoff Gill later emerged as songwriter and producer for Boney M.
