For consistent improvement of wikipages, most recently The Critters. Moonriddengirl 12:59, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Crow (band)[edit]

I don't think it is necessary to remove red-links from articles as you have done in this article. All that does is discourage further contributions and makes it more difficult to navigate when articles are created. It doesn't look as tidy, I'll give you that, but it is more typically helpful to have the potential information accessible. matt91486 13:41, 23 July 2007 (UTC)


Hi, I saw that you do a lot of work improving pop music pages. You seem to be working from alphabetical lists. If you notice any musicians on your lists that obviously need pages and don't have them, could you let me know? I do a lot of article creation in pop music. Thanks. Chubbles (talk) 14:59, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Chubbles. Perhaps your best starting-off point, may be the various lists of one-hit wonders - such as One-hit wonders in the UK. There are plenty of red-links. Otherwise, the only group that springs to mind, at present, is The Casuals ("Jesamine", UK #2, 1968). Hope this helps, if anything else crops up, I will try to remember to let you know. (talk) 14:16, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
Okay, that one's up. Good catch - the Germans have had an article on them for over two years. Chubbles (talk) 15:18, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
Well done. How's about Julie Rogers ("The Wedding" UK #3 - 1964), plus two other Top 40 hits ? (talk) 12:02, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

I put up a real short stub about Rogers; there's not much online about her. If I see a good paper source in my travels I'll expand it. Chubbles (talk) 05:05, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Next one then - Liquid Gold. Two Top Ten UK hits plus four other chart singles + Top 40 album. Cheers, (talk) 11:33, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Done! Chubbles (talk) 17:36, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

What about The Brooks Brothers ? - five UK Singles Chart hits, including a couple of Top Twenty entries. Cheers, (talk) 19:43, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

That one's up now under The Brook Brothers. Chubbles (talk) 19:28, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
Oh yeah, Brook Brothers (not Brooks Brothers) - sorry. How about New World ? From Australia, but five UK chart hits including four Top 20s. (talk) 12:00, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
Now live at New World (band). Chubbles (talk) 19:02, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Next - Maureen Evans - UK singer with five chart hits, including "Like I Do" (#3 1962). Cheers, (talk) 19:02, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Stub's up with a complete discography but not much biographical data. Chubbles (talk) 13:20, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Also, the new article on Ral Donner may interest you; somehow, he escaped my notice all the way up to now despite four Top 40 US hits. Chubbles (talk) 20:40, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Oh yes, Ral Donner - well done. On the subject of Elvis sound-alikes, what about one-hit wonder Danny Mirror (real name Eddy Ouwens from Netherlands). #4 UK hit in 1977 with the truly bloody awful "I Remember Elvis Presley (The King is Dead)". If you've never heard it, you're lucky ! I must be buzzing today because what about Richard Barnes (two hit wonder - "Take To The Mountains" and "Go North" - both 1970). And a couple more one hit merchants in Brendon (Brendon Dunning) #14 in 1977 with "Gimme Some"; and Frantique ("Strut Your Funky Stuff" - #10 - 1979). That'll keep you out of mischief ! Best wishes, (talk) 12:40, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Mirror already has an article under his given name. Wow, I'm amazed at how little information there is about UK one-hit wonders; some of these are even more poorly documented online than US one-hitters from the '50s. Put up (very short) stubs for all; maybe I should invest in a UK singles book. Chubbles (talk) 14:13, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes the lack of UK one-hit wonder info is frustrating. Perhaps all the more satisfying to find something though. I would recommend the 'bible' - Guinness British Hit Singles & Albums - although this will not provide you with biographical information for anyone but the most famous. (talk) 11:27, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Two more then - Fierce (UK female vocal group) - one Top Ten, plus three other hit singles and Top 30 album in 1999 / 2000; and Cupid's Inspiration (two late 1960s hits including one Top 5). (talk) 11:16, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
Candlewick Green (one-hit wonder with "Who Do You Think You Are?" in 1974 on Decca Records); and Harmony Grass (similarly with "Move In a Little Closer Baby" on RCA Records in 1969) are your next tasks, should you accept the challenge ! Regards, (talk) 12:54, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Or Forrest (American Forrest M Thomas Jr) with two Top 20 UK hits in 1983, both covers - "Rock The Boat" and "Feel The Need In Me". (talk) 13:19, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
All up, though I couldn't even find a complete memberlist for the Candlewick Green article. I thought the Brits were famed for preserving their cultural history... Chubbles (talk) 14:22, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Well done. Brits famed for preserving their cultural history ?! Hell, no. We sell it off to all those with no culture or history - the United States mainly. LOL. (talk) 12:52, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Two more for you - Lance Fortune (real name Chris Morris - UK #4 in 1960 with "Be Mine"); and The Four Knights (U.S. male vocal group - UK #5 in 1954 with "(Oh Baby Mine) I Get So Lonely" on Capitol Records) (talk) 13:28, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Taken care of. My, that Fortune fellow's dusty; a thoroughly forgotten figure. Chubbles (talk) 22:56, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Yes, the early 1960s UK pop singers did not fare well against the beat groups. How's about Dickie Pride, Vince Eager and Rory Storm ? On another note a couple of reggae acts without an article at present are Jesse Green and Greyhound. This Jesse Green is not the U.S. pianist but a Jamaican vocalist, biggest UK hit "Nice and Slow" (1976). Two other Top 30 entries too. Greyhound was/were a Jamaican vocal group, biggest UK hit "Black and White" in 1971. Two other Top 20 entries as well. Best wishes, (talk) 13:09, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
Plus Halo James - UK band with four UK chart hits in 1989/90, including "Could Have Told You So" (#6); Top 20 album too. (talk) 10:57, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I was on vacation and haven't gotten to these yet. I might halt a bit on the one-hitters for which there's nothing available; I'm seeing a troubling tendency toward deletion of groups which meet WP:MUSIC but don't meet criterion 1 (which essentially amounts to an editor either taking the lack of sources in the article at face value or doing a Google search and looking at the top ten results). Will get to these as I can. Chubbles (talk) 15:39, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

OK - classic two hit wonder for you next. Chris Hill, a UK vocalist and DJ, who made the Top Ten both with "Renta Santa" and "Bionic Santa" in 1975 & 1976 (two novelty records). Regards, (talk) 11:26, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Or even Hollywood Beyond a UK male group with two hits in 1986 (including "What's The Colour of Money?" - #7). Best wishes, (talk) 11:56, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Stub's up for Hollywood Beyond - I wish All Music Guide had better coverage of UK pop music. Chubbles (talk) 16:04, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

OK - next is Hurricane #1 - seven UK Singles Chart and two UK Albums Chart entries in the late 1990s. Regards, (talk) 13:46, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
Actually, they do have an entry at Hurricane No. 1 - the article can't be located at Hurricane #1 because the pound sign is used for internal links. Chubbles (talk) 13:59, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
Oh yes, I thought it was strange there was not an article. Thanks, (talk) 11:20, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

How's about Jimmy Justice. Two Top 10 hits in 1962 - "When My Little Girl is Smiling", "Ain't That Funny" plus Top 20 follow-up cover of "Spanish Harlem". Thanks, (talk) 13:22, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Put up a page for Justice. Sad that it took so long for anyone to notice. Chubbles (talk) 18:39, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
Thank you. Back to the 1950s for the Kaye Sisters. A UK vocal group with three Top 10 hits, including "Got-ta Have Something in the Bank, Frank", plus covers of both "Come Softly To Me" and "Paper Roses". Particularly liked the sound of another song title of theirs - "Shake Me, I Rattle" ! Regards again, (talk) 12:48, 11 July 2008 (UTC)
Or even Dave King - UK vocalist, died 17 April 2002 - with four Top 30 hits in the 1950s, including his UK Top 10 cover of "Memories Are Made of This". Thanks again, (talk) 11:27, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Those are both up, though the Dave King one is admittedly pretty thin. I'll cook up a page for The Beverley Sisters soon, as well; hard to believe that hasn't been done yet. Chubbles (talk) 21:35, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Well in that case, whilst we are on siblings, how's about The King Brothers. Two Top 10 hits ["A White Sport Coat (And A Pink Carnation)" and "Standing On The Corner"], out of a total of eight UK Singles Chart entries between 1957 and 1961. Regards, (talk) 11:01, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Ah, somebody had one up for the Beverley Sisters at Beverley Sisters. King Brothers are up - fascinating Japanese rock group with the same name, as well. Chubbles (talk) 14:06, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Try Kele Le Roc (born Kelly Biggs) with two UK Top 10 hits in 1998 and 1999 - "Little Bit of Lovin'" and "My Love". Two other minor hits in the UK Singles Chart, plus chart album in 1999. Thank you, (talk) 11:55, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Short entry up for Le Roc. Chubbles (talk) 15:10, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Well done. What about C. J. Lewis - two Top 10 singles ("Sweets For My Sweet" and "Everything Is Alright (Uptight)" both in 1994) plus three other Top 40 hits. (talk) 13:20, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Very short stub is up. Chubbles (talk) 21:08, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Limmie and the Family Cookin' are the next challenge - Two Top 10 UK hits with "You Can Do Magic" and "A Walkin' Miracle" in 1973 and 1974 respectively. Best wishes, (talk) 11:33, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Done! Limmie Snell already had an article, but I've put one up under Limmie & the Family Cooking. Chubbles (talk) 16:04, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
One hit wonder time again. Try Tami Lynn whose "I'm Gonna Run Away From You" was a UK hit twice over (#4 in 1971 and #36 in 1975). Regards (talk) 13:06, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
She's up! Chubbles (talk) 15:07, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Can't believe this, but I just discovered that Ronnie Dove never had an article until yesterday. Maybe I should make another pass of the Americans, since I basically assumed anyone with five or more Top 40 hits couldn't have gone this long without an article. Chubbles (talk) 18:16, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it probably is worth a quick trawl through. It is amazing how someone commands no article at all, whilst others of considerably lesser renown have quite sizable pages. A couple of lesser lights from the 1950s and 1960s then are David MacBeth ("Mr Blue", #18, 1959) and Frankie McBride ("Five Little Fingers", #19, 1967). I reckon you might have some difficulty finding sufficient information even for a stub. (talk) 13:26, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Actually managed to unearth enough for a stub on Frankie McBride. Chubbles (talk) 15:34, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Well done. Or Rachel McFarlane, UK singer with seven UK Singles Chart entries, including six Top 40 hits (often in conjunction with Loveland) - circa 1993-6. Thanks, (talk) 11:20, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
Added that one as Loveland (band). Chubbles (talk) 13:56, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Miki and Griff is another without an article. They had four UK hit singles between 1959 and 1963, including their version of "A Little Bitty Tear" (#16 - 1962). Cheers, (talk) 12:28, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

It's up at Miki & Griff. Chubbles (talk) 16:05, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Another omission then - Gerry Monroe had six UK hit singles in the early 1970s, including two Top Ten entries, "Sally" and "My Prayer". I seem to be down to about one suggestion per month at the present time. Best wishes, (talk) 11:58, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Short stub up at Gerry Monroe. Chubbles (talk) 14:16, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
