Twink and the fairies do it 77 - Twink (musician) - Wikipedia

Alder’s career began in 1963 as a member of a  rhythm and blues  band from  Colchester  called Dane Stephens and the Deep Beats. After a year, the band evolved into  The Fairies  – Dane Stephens (vocals/blues harp), John ‘Akky’ Acutt (lead guitar), Mick Weaver (rhythm guitar/fiddle – NOT the same-named organ player also known as Wynder K Frog), John Frederick Gandy (bass) and John Alder (drums). In 1964 The Fairies recorded the single “ Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright ” for the  Decca Records  label. The Fairies were sometimes sent gifts and Alder, having long curly hair, regularly received bottles of  Twink brand home perm lotion . It was at this time that he adopted ‘Twink’ as his stage name.

Now Twink is back and re-energized. He just released the fabulous You Reached for the Stars album which picks up where he left off with the Pink Fairies and now he's about to start working on a sequel to the massive Think Pink . Editor John Gentile spoke to Twink about the new album, asking John Lennon to write him a song and… well… THE PINK FAIRIES MAN, THE. PINK. FAIRIES.
