The Merton Parkas

Redirected from Merton Parkas

The Merton Parkas were a Mod band formed in the Merton area of south London in the mid-70's by Danny Talbot (vocals), Mick Talbot[?] (keyboards), Neil Wurrell (bass) and Simon Smith (drums). They emerged on the wave of Mods revival and signed with an independent label called Beggars Banquet[?].

They had a few moderately successful singles like :

  • You Need Wheels
  • Plastic Smile
  • Give It To Me Now
  • Put Me In The Pictures
and one LP
  • Face In The Crowd

After the group disbanded in 1980, Mick Talbot went on to play with Dexy's Midnight Runners, The Bureau and with Paul Weller[?] in The Style Council[?].
