Part of the sixties British gallery of beat groups, managed by Harvey Lisberg, who also managed Hermans Hermits. Lisberg later became the manager of 10cc, in the 70’s.
Graham Gouldman, an important member of the group, supplied most of the writing for the group. “For Your Love,” a million seller for The Yardbirds, was intended to be the first Mockingbird’s single release. Th Mockingbirds put out some really good music, with little success.
Formed by Graham Gouldman, following the breakup of The Whirlwinds. The lineup included: Bernard Basso, Bass; Steve Jacobson, Guitar; Kevin Godley, drums; along with Gouldman.
Gouldman was mystified by the group’s lack of success and broke uip the band in 1966. Gouldman, in preparing for a solo career, joined The Mindbenders for a short period.
