Hi Mordi
Nice 60s feelgood pop to stand shoulder to shoulder alongside groups like The Pixies Three, The Angels etc.
I have never heard of The Orchids but will be tuned into them from now on(How old were they as they look like schoolkids) and were they a U.S group?

The Orchids were 15 year old schoolgirls from Coventry in the UK.

They also released a few songs in America under the name of The Exceptions- but they changed their sound along with their name.

The Orchids didn't have much success, and only relased a few singles- but they RULE!

check out this AMAZING page dedictaed to the girls:

Hi Mordi
Thanks for the info,i will check out the website.
I should be ashamed of myself a group like this from my own country and i had never heard of them till your posting.
Its amazing for any group to have a sound like that at a young age.
Once again thanks for the education.
