“Apache” by The Shadows

31 07 2013

When I was listening to Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet at Hillside, I was wondering: were they named after The Shadows? The two bands are similar enough in style. Here’s “Apache”, a hit for them in 1960:

The Shadows are from England, and were formed by members of various skiffle groups. They first became prominent as a backup band for Cliff Richard. Their lineup has changed over the years, but principal guitarist Hank Marvin has remained a constant throughout. They last toured in 2010.
