THE ATTACK & HERSHEY family tree
The Attack were a mod / /psychedelic group formed in 1966 around singer Richard Shirman aka Hershey (born 26 April 1949, London). The first line-up featured drummer Alan Whitehead (later in Marmalade), guitarist David O’List (later of The Nice) and John Du Cann (later of Andromeda, Five Day Straw People and Atomic Rooster). They recorded ‘Try It’ before The Standells and Ohio Epress. The Attack also released a version of ‘Hi Hi Silver Lining’ before Jeff Beck, but it was Jeff Beck who scored a hit.
Richard Shirman declined the offer to be the singer of Andromeda, but Attack guitarist John Du Cann did join. DuCann was also in a band called Five Day Week Straw People whose only reason of existence was the offer to make a psychedelic album for budget label Saga.
In the early 80s Later, Richard ‘Hershey’ Shirman put together a blues band called HERSHEY AND THE 12 BARS. Their first album carries the tongue-in-cheek title “Greatest Hits Vol. 2. “ (2000). ABACABE Records later put out “Welcome to Hershey”, featuring live tracks from 1989 and studio tracks from 1986. Both albums feature a horn section with saxophonists Frank Mead and Nick Payne, friends of Hershey’s who have become quite famous and have played with a number of big acts like Bill Wyman and his Rhythm Kings. You will find more famous names in the line-ups, e.g. keyboardist Dave Lennox.
