Two 13-year-old Cardinal Wisemen schoolgirls who were overheard by their teacher singing a song in the playground that turned out to be written by the girls. They signed to Decca Records in 1965 and released the self-penned single “Traitor In Disguise”!, and the B-Side,”I Love You (Yes I Do)”. The story goes that guitar legend Bert Weedon helped the girls secure the Decca contract. I put this to Bert, and he has absolutely no recollection of it ever happening. The follow-up 45 was to be “Teenage Dreamer”, with a Christmas song entitled “Panda” on the reverse, sadly it never materialised.
“I remember going into the recording studio and the backing band saying they wish they could change places with us. I didn’t understand it at the time and it’s only now I realise what a great opportunity we had. At the time we were very innocent and very naïve and I don’t think we really re- alised what we were involved in”
