The Tams – The Artist
The Tams are an American vocal group from Atlanta, Georgia, who enjoyed their greatest chart success in the 1960s, the 1970s, and the 1980s. Two separate lineups of the group continue to perform and record. One lineup, called ‘The Original Tams with R. L. Smith’, features original member Robert Lee Smith, and the other lineup is under the leadership of Charles Pope, the brother of co-founder Joe Pope. The band formed in 1960, and took their name from the Tam o’shanter hats they wore on stage. The group reached the Number one slot in the UK Singles Chart in September 1971, with the re-issue of Hey Girl Don’t Bother Me, thanks to its initial support from the then thriving UK Northern soul scene.
Hey Girl Don’t Bother Me – The Song
Hey Girl Don’t Bother Me is a popular single by The Tams. Written by Ray Whitley, it was originally released in 1964 but subsequently re-issued in 1971 as it became a favourite in the Northern soul scene.
Northern Soul Fist Logo – The Shape
Northern soul is a music and dance movement that emerged in Northern England in the late 1960s from the British mod scene, based on a particular style of black American soul music, especially in the mid-1960s, with a heavy beat and fast tempo. The clenched fist symbol was adopted by the Northern soul movement along with the term ‘Keep The Faith’ (KTF)
