Legendary early UK Beat group. In my opinion, still very underrated today, their records are great and really reflect the time. Their "Big Three at the Cavern" EP is fantastic and really captures the sound from those Cavern days. Although many say their studio recordings don't really capture their wild sound, I believe the track I've included here is an exception. "Cavern Stomp" sounds pretty wild to my ears and I think all you Mod DJ's out there should give it a spin at your next club night.
Here's a few more tidbits about The Big Three:
1. They were managed by Brian Epstein, but were allegedly dropped from his management because of their wild antics.
2. Their drummer, Johnny Hutchinson, drummed for The Beatles for a brief period between Pete Best and Ringo in 1962.
3. The original lineup lasted only until November 1963 and the band was completely disbanded by early 1964!
