Biography

RockBoar.com Picture     The Undertakers were a British beat group,  a leading group in the Merseybeat music scene of the early 1960s.

   The Undertakers developed a major local following for their live performances. This was due to the quality of Lomax's singing, the customisation of the band’s instruments and amplification by Huston, and the fact that, unlike most Merseybeat groups, they were boosted by a saxophone, which enabled them to play a wider range of R&B songs including more obscure material. 

   They played at Hamburg’s Star-Club during 1962. However, on their return, they rejected a management offer from Brian Epstein, and signed a recording contract with Pye Records with Tony Hatch as their record producer. The records they made with Pye were weak both in terms of their sound and commercial success, although their third single, "Just a Little Bit", managed one week on the Top 50 in the UK Singles Chart in April 1964

     The Undertakers split up after a tour of the United States in 1965, with Lomax, Huston and Pemberton all remaining in that country and developing their own careers in themusic industry.
