The Fingers reform for home show

One of the UK's first psychedelic groups, Southend's  The Fingers, are reforming for a special hometown gig at the Riga Music Bar in Westcliff-on-Sea.

Probably the first group to wear hillbilly hats and braces and vests, they still pack a mighty punch with this original six-piece line-up, three of whom have worked extensively with Mickey Jupp in various bands including Legend. Members of The Fingers have also worked with many well known artists such as Billy Fury, Suzi Quatro, Chris Farlowe, Frankie Ford Flaco Jiminez, Robin Trower, Rhet Stoller, and Cliff Richard. They also recorded, as Daddy Lindberg, the classic 1967 psychedelic song 'Wade In The Shade'.

  1. The Fingers recorded Wade in the Shade in 1967 under the pseudonym Daddy Lindberg. They reformed for a one off gig in 2012 and a live CD has now been released. It is called Wade in the Shade and is available from mickeyjuppdotcom.
