THE CINDERMEN - Think Of Me


THE CINDERMEN - 'Think Of Me'/'I'm Happy' (Moonglow M-5002) 1965

Last year I made contact with Cindermen drummer Sam Sinopoli and he furnished me with much needed information about his teenage beat group from Fresno, California. At the time I did not have their debut 45 'Think Of Me' in my collection but since then I've added it to my stash of records so I thought I'd give it some exposure. (My copy has been signed by group members)

'Think Of Me' written by Cindermen lead singer Fred Perry is a noteworthy Brit Invasion influenced jangly pop song with an equal measure of The Beatles and The Searchers. It's such a commercial sounding disc and should have been a massive seller.

Here's the link to my Sam Sinopoli interview if you missed it here

  1. Great track, Colin. It almost has a power pop feel to it. The guitar solo is absolutely gobsmacking, sounds like it was recorded inside a huge bell or something. I wonder if Fred Perry sported a polo shirt whilst recording this...

  2. You're right about the guitar sound...phenomenal...too bad Fred Perry had to go to Vietnam as I think The Cindermen could have gone on to record an album.
