Force Five

From: Canvey Island, England

The Force Five were a short-lived British pop band who released a handful of singles on the United Artists label. Band members included Ron Gent (lead vocals), Pete James (rhythm guitar), Dave Osborne (bass), Dave Scates (drums) and Bert Ash (lead guitar). They were managed by Dick Mountney.

The band’s name was derived from a casual remark made by a local club owner, who told Mountney that “Your boys blow up a storm like a gale force five wind.” 1965’s “Yea, I’m Waiting” is a great piece of garage rock and can be heard here on Psychedelicized Radio
