Clapham Junction - Emily on Sunday

Emily on Sunday/Good Time Music

This pop-psych group formed in 1968 and for a while ran its own nightclub called the Union Jack in Sydney, Australia. Several members originally haled from the U.K. and they took their name from Britain’s busiest railway station. Original personnel consisted of Dennis Laughlin (vocals), Sammy See (keyboards), Derek Lewis (guitar), Peter Noble (bass) and David Mills (drums).

The band won a local radio station's Battle of the Bands competition and the prize was the opportunity to record at Martin Erdman's studios on the Du Monde label. The result was a track written by the band "Emily On A Sunday" their only single. Erdman later remaked that the studio was like a grog shop with band drunk constantly during the recording session.

In early 1969, Laughlin and See left to form Sherbet and were replaced by Jim Willebrandt (vocals) and William Mahoney (vocals). It was this lineup that released one single (the outstanding ‘Emily On Sunday’ b/w ‘Good Time Music’) in late 1969.
