The Searches

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor The Searches The Searchers is a band from Liverpool who – parallel to bands like The Beatles and Gerry & the Pacemakers – developed the music that would eventually conquer the world as Merseybeat (also known as Liverpool Sound). The band members had been active in various (skiffle) bands since 1957. After various compositions the occupation of The Searchers arose in 1961, as it would break through in 1963 worldwide. Although The Beatles were in fact the forerunners of the Liverpool bands, it was The Searchers who were the first of that generation to break through in the Netherlands. Their ‘Sweets for my Sweet’ was the first Merseybeatsong to climb the Dutch hit parade. All in all, The Searchers spent 22 singles and 5 LPs on the record label PYE in their success period (1963 to 1968). See for more.
