English Merseybeat band, The Fourmost, formed in 1960 and comprised Brian O'Hara and Billy Hatton (orginally The Blue Jays) with Mike Millward joining in 1961 and Dave Lovelady in 1962. Under the management of Brian Epstein they signed for EMIs Allophone label. They released "Hello Little Girl'' and "I'm in Love" - both composed by John Lennon and the tracks met with moderate success.
Their big break came in 1964 with the release of "A Little Loving" which went to 6 in the UK chart. They then released a string of successive songs which failed to reach the top 20. These included "How Can I Tell her", "Baby I Need Your Loving", “Everything in the Garden" and "Girls, Girls, Girls", an Elvis Presley cover. The band also appeared in the film ‘Ferry Cross the Mersey’
Sadly, in 1966 Mike Millward died of leukemia and fellow band member Brian O'Hara took his own life in 1999.
