The Missing Links

The Missing Links

The Missing Links were an Australian R&B group from Sydney which existed from 1964 to 1966 and were renowned for long hair, an adventurous musical style and smashing their equipment on-stage. There were two main versions of the band: the first had Peter Anson on guitar, Dave Boyne on guitar, Bob Brady on vocals, Danny Cox on drums and Ronnie Peel on bass guitar and released their debut single, "We 2 Should Live" in March 1965. The second version had Andy Anderson on vocals (and initially on drums), Chris Gray on keyboards and harmonica, Doug Ford on vocals and guitar, Baden Hutchens on drums and Ian Thomas on bass guitar, and released their debut album, The Missing Links in December. According to Allmusic's, Richie Unterberger, "This aggregation cut the rawest Australian garage/punk of the era, and indeed some of the best from anywhere, sounding at their best like a fusion of the Troggs and the early Who, letting loose at times with wild feedback that was quite ahead of its time".
