About The Gentlemen

1. The Gentlemen (UK)

The Gentlemen have been performing in and around the North of England for nearly three years, having built up an active following and playing alongside such acts as Palladium, The Motorettes and We Are Scientists at The Leadmill in Sheffield. The Gentlemen’s last sell out show in their hometown was at the Plug and their next show in Sheffield will include a live video shoot for their forth coming single scheduled for release early 2009.

Having played many large European shows this year, a recent show with Ash and Collin Murray at the Ricoh Arena, plus an increasing number of festival and university concerts, they will be spending the following three months showcasing and performing for national and international television and radio programs in the run up to their release. Their latest festival has seen the group play to over 10,000 people live in Holland with full National TV and Radio coverage.

2. The Gentlemen (from Texas)

Tom Brown, president of Vandan Records heard us play at LouAnn's Club in Dallas, and wondered if we would do some writing with him and Gene Garretson, his arranger. After several weeks, we came up with a song called "You Can't Be True" and what was considered the B side, "It's a Cry'n Shame". We liked "Cry'n Shame" better, but Gene spent a lot of time arranging violins and multiple tracks for "You Can't Be True" so that was the track they pushed. It took us nearly two weeks to record "You Can't Be True", and as a complete after-thought, 2 takes and probably 1 hour to slam down It's a Cry'n Shame". There in lies the genuine spontaneity that makes it pure straight ahead punk rock, I suppose. Brown then pressed 1 or 2 thousand of the dreadfully flat Vandan copies and sent them to his Djay cronies in Detroit, Philly and Boston for airplay. A few weeks later when we were having the photograph that I am sending you made at the Studio Club in Dallas, a triumphant Brown walked in with a copy, (Jan. 1967) of Record World Magazine. In the 4 Star Rating column of hits to watch were 3 songs, "For What It's Worth", by the Buffalo Springfield, "Don't You Want Somebody to Love", by the Jefferson Airplane, and "It's a Cry'n Shame" by the Gentlemen. We wondered how that could be at the time, whether Tom Brown paid someone for that privilege, but now I think maybe that song got there on it's own merit. After all, it was suppose to be the B side.
