Build Me Up Buttercup, The Foundation(s) of a good night
One of the biggest groups of the Swinging Sixties, The Foundations, are coming to the Brindley Theatre on Wednesday 27 April.
The Foundations first came to attention in 1967 with worldwide number one Baby Now That I’ve Found You, making it the first British multiracial group to have a number one hit in Britain in the 1960s.
The follow-up Back On My Feet Again reached number 18 in Britain and then Any Old Time (You’re Lonely And Sad) got to number 48.
Clem Curtis left The Foundations at this stage and was replaced by Colin Young, who was on lead vocals for the group’s next international chart-topper Build Me Up Buttercup.
Other hits included In The Bad Bad Old Days (Before You Loved Me) and Born To Live, Born To Die.
Now original lead guitarist/vocalist Alan Warner is keeping the magnificent sound of The Foundations alive with a group of hugely talented musicians.
