Best remembered in the U.S. for the classic “Hitchin’ a Ride,” harmony pop ensemble Vanity Fare formed in Kent, England in 1968. Comprising vocalist Trevor Brice, guitarist Tony Goulden, bassist Tony Jarrett, and drummer Dick Allix, the group originally dubbed themselves the Avengers; soon local entrepreneur Roger Easterby signed on as manager, orchestrating a contract with the Page One label and instructing the group to cover the Sunrays’ “I Live for the Sun” for their debut single. With their sophisticated harmonies and clean-cut image, the Avengers needed a suitably genteel name, remixing the title of William Makepeace Thackeray’s most famous novel to create Vanity Fare; “I Live for the Sun” cracked the U.K. Top 20 in the summer of 1968, although it would take the group a year to return to the charts, with “Early in the Morning” reaching the Top Ten on both sides of the Atlantic
