Biography[edit]

The Three Amigos first single was their cover of "Louie Louie". Released in July 1999, it reached #15 in the UK Singles Chart.[1] The band's logo on the single cover paid tribute to the logo of The Kingsmen, one of the first bands to cover "Louie Louie".[2] The single also featured a remix by The Wiseguys.

The Three Amigos were made up of Dylan Amlot, Milroy Nadarajah, Josh Powell and Marc Williams.[3]

Since the breakup of the band Dylan Amlot has continued to DJ,[4] while Milroy Nadarajah turned to crime and, in 2004, was jailed for seven years for supplying cocaine to a London drug gang.[5]
