The Symbols were an English pop music band, who were founded in 1965 and lasted until 1974. The group began in the early 1960s as Johnny Milton and the Condors. In 1965, they changed their name to The Symbols. Their debut single under the Symbols name was produced by Mickie Most. However, "One Fine Girl", was a commercial failure. Mick Clarke left them to join The Tremeloes and was replaced on bass by Adrian Gurvitz, later of The Gun. Clarke introduced The Trems to a track that The Symbols had played in their repertoire, "Silence is Golden". Edward Kassner launched President Records in the UK in 1966, and signed The Symbols, initially to cover a US hit, "See You In September". The gamble did not work as the record failed. The Symbols had a hit with "(The Best Part of) Breaking Up", originally recorded by The Ronettes, it was their second and final UK chart success. At the end of 1973, Mick Clarke left to join the Rubettes. At the beginning of 1974 John Milton left to join Sparrow and despite John being the last original member, attempts were made to keep the band going. But as a suitable singer could not be found, they called it a day and The Symbols were no more. The second Symbols band formed by Sean and Clive, however, carried on working.
