The Idle Race

The core of the group, Nightriders rhythm guitarist Dave Pritchard, bass guitarist Greg Masters and drummer Roger Spencer, was relatively unchanged from 1959 until February 1972. The band went through several incarnations, lead guitarists and lead singers: first Billy King and later, more successfully, with Mike Sheridan, with whom they first rose to prominence and, in 1964, to a record deal with EMI.

While Mike Sheridan and The Nightriders failed to crack the charts, the band’s lineup during this period included a young lead guitarist and composer named Roy Wood, whose first commercial song “Make Them Understand,” appeared on one of the band’s B-sides in 1965.

Wood jumped ship to join the then Brum ‘supergroup’ The Move in December 1965. Sheridan left shortly thereafter.

The Nightriders soldiered on with a new lead guitarist, Johnny Mann, for a few months. When they placed an advert in May 1966 for a younger replacement, the winning applicant was Lynne, then a relatively unknown guitar prodigy from the Birmingham district of Shard End. The Nightriders recorded one single for Polydor, “It’s Only The Dog/Your Friend,” released in November 1966 with Lynne on lead guitar. Spencer sang lead on the former; the latter was written and sung by Pritchard.

    LOL @ "cult rock band". Kind of a ridiculous epithet for a band that was absolutely most truly "second only to the beatles". Back around 2005 I spent like a year or two listening to this band constantly... so massive! A zillion times better than anything by the quite respectable ELO and a million times better than the mighty awesome Move! And the third album without Lynne isn't as great, but it's still a killer album with a handful of superb songs and only one or two slightly weak cuts. Lynne was mega-brilliant, but Dave Pritchard is totally underrated. A few of the best cuts on the first two albums were actually written by him and his voice was great too!

    the_flava and tomkash, you're both idiots. This band is one of the great lost psychedelic pop bands of the 60's.
