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

Wayne Fontana, formed his group The Jets in 1962. Fontana got his stage name from Elvis Presley's drummer D. J. Fontana, not from the record company. After they were spotted by Fontana Records, they sometimes act as the Mindbenders, or just as the Wayne Fontana band. The name, The Mindbenders was inspired by the title of a 1963 film, starring the British actor Sir Dirk Bogarde, called The Mind Benders. They had a number one hit with "Game Of Love" in 1965. After a tour in the USA and some unsuccessful singles, Fontana abruptly left the band in the middle of a concert in 1965. Guitarist Eric Stewart suddenly became the lead singer of the band, which immediately dropped "Wayne Fontana" from its name. The Mindbenders' first single without Fontana was the hit "Groovy Kind Of Love" which sold over one milion copies. Fontana's most successful solo single release was also his last, "Pamela, Pamela", in 1967. In 2005, he fought off bankruptcy, but was arrested after police were called by bailiffs who went to his home in Glossop, Derbyshire. He poured petrol on to the bonnet of a car, and set it alight with a bailiff inside. He appeared at Derby Crown Court dressed as the lady of justice, with a sword, scales, crown, cape and dark glasses, claiming "justice is blind", he was sentenced to 11 months for setting fire to the car but was released.
