Crayons to Perfume Girls of the Week: The Beat Chics! One Single Wonders

The Beat-Chics released just one double sided swingin' single on Decca Records in 1964. This all-girl group was founded by drummer Chrstine Lee (blonde)in 1964 when she was just 18 years old. Joining her were Moira Page playing saxophone, Mary Cullen on organ, Lesley Arden and Anne Bridgeman on guitar and Una Mellor playing bass.

 In November of 1964 they released the double sider: 'Skinnie Minnie' and 'Now I Know' on Decca, featuring Jimmy Page on lead guitar.

Both Jimmy Page and the Beatles? Oh, Now I Know (wink wink!!)

Crayons to Perfume is coming soon to WFMU's Ichiban Soul, hosted by Glynis Ward, DJ girlgroupgirl
