Herman’s Hermits- The Artist

Herman’s Hermits are an English beat rock and pop group formed in 1964 in Manchester, originally called Herman and His Hermits and featuring lead singer Peter Noone. Produced by Mickie Most, they charted with number ones in the UK and in America, where they ranked as one of the most successful acts in the Beatles-led British Invasion. They also appeared in four films, two of them vehicles for the band. Herman’s Hermits was formed from Keith Hopwood (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Karl Green (lead guitar, backing vocals), Alan Wrigley (bass), Steve Titterington (drums) and Peter Noone (lead vocals). Peter Noone left the band in 1971. Herman’s Hermits reunited in 1973 to headline a British invasion tour of the US, culminating with a performance at Madison Square Garden and an appearance on The Midnight Special. A later lineup without Noone but featuring lead guitarist Derek Leckenby and drummer Barry Whitwam opened for the Monkees on their 1980s reunion tours of the US. The band continues to tour today, with Whitwam as the only remaining member from the original lineup..

No Milk Today- The Song

‘No Milk Today’ is a song that was written by Graham Gouldman and originally recorded by British pop band Herman’s Hermits. It was first released as a single by the Mancunian group in the UK in October 1966 and, with the B-side “My Reservation’s Been Confirmed”, enjoyed chart success, peaking at No. 7 in the UK Singles Chart. The lyrics refer to the practice, common at the time, of milkmen delivering fresh milk in bottles to residential houses each morning. The love interest of the song’s protagonist has just moved out, so the household needs less milk. The notice in front of the house, asking the milkman not to leave the usual bottle, while seeming mundane to passers-by (“how could they know just what this message means?”), symbolises to the singer himself the break-up of his relationship (“the end of all my dreams”). Gouldman wrote the song for The Hollies after he saw a “no milk today” notice outside a friend’s house one day, and his father observed that could be for various reasons.

The Vintage Milk Churn – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a vintage farmers metal milk churn. A milk churn is a tall, conical or cylindrical container for the transportation of milk. It is sometimes referred to as a milk can. Dairy farmers used to leave their cows milk in such churns outside their farm on stands ready for collection to be processed before going for sale.
