About The Searchers

Hailing from Liverpool, the Searchers were one of the many bands on the Merseybeat scene that enjoyed international fame in the wake of the Beatles' breakthrough. The group's trademark sound was bright, tuneful pop with ringing 12-string guitars and strong harmony vocals which gave their material a touch of sweetness that made them hard to resist. The Searchers were also one of the most enduring Merseybeat acts, forming in the late '50s and continuing on into the 2010s, with guitarist John McNally a constant presence throughout their history, and bassist Frank Allen by his side from 1964 onward. Early hits such as "Sugar and Spice," "Needles and Pins," and "Love Potion Number Nine" defined the group's approach, and they rarely strayed from it, still sounding fresh decades later.
