WYNDER K. FROG
Wynder K. Frog, real name Mike Weaver, is a British musician who is mainly known as a Hammond wizard. It is also the name of the various line-ups of the group he led in the sixties.
He set up his first group with two former members of The Chapters, who had secured an audition with Decca. The audition did take place, but nothing came of it. Two members of this first line-up left for St. Louis Union, who recorded for Decca. They won a Melody Maker contest and the future looked bright. Though they played rough R&B, they scored a top 20 hit with a Beatles cover, Michelle. The remaining members s of Wynder K. Frog merged with The Wot Nots, giving birth to Wynder K. Frog Mark II. Even though one member left for Arthur Brown of ‘Fire’ fame, this was the line-up that caught the attention of Chris Blackwell, head of Island Records who released the first Frog single in 1966. Wynder aka Mike Weaver would soon become a leading musician who could count on the services of the best players and top producers like Muff Winwood, Jimmy Miller, Guy Stevens and Chris Blackwell himself. Wynder K. Frog would release a string of singles and three albums – all instrumentals with the occasional vocal – between 1966 and 1970, but the commercial breakthrough didn’t take place.
Wynder K. Frog was heavily influenced by soul and R&B (think James Brown), especially by keyboard wizards such as Jimmy McGriff, Booker T or Jimmy Smith, a liking he shared with Graham Bond, Georgie Fame and Zoot Money. I suppose you could file it under ‘ Mod music’, but fiery jazzy R&B suits me.
