Fakta Pete Townshend's chauffeur-flatmate John "Speedy" Keen, jazz-pianist postal employee Andy "Thunderclap" Newman" and teenaged future Wings guitarist Jimmy McCullough comprised this one-hit-wonder of a band. They're best known for "Something in the Air," a throbbingly perfect pro-revolution anthem, but the rest of the trio's single album is fairly terrific as well. It revolves around songwriter-drummer Keen's contrasting fantasies about louche Hollywood pleasures along with odes to sexy country comforts. Townshend, who produced the album and plays bass pseudonymously as Bijou Drains, was sold on Keen's songwriting (he also wrote The Who Sell Out opener "Armania City in the Sky") and Newman's jazzy jangle. The band floundered onstage, however, and broke up six months after the album's release, with Newman attributing its demise to a confluence of personal and artistic differences.
