CONLON & THE CRAWLERS - I WON'T TELL


CONLON & THE CRAWLERS - 'I Won't Tell'/'You're Comin' On' (Marlin 45-16006) March 1967

Charlie Conlon was the singer/songwriter and bass player for The Nightcrawlers who had a big hit with 'Little Black Egg' in 1965. According to the liners of the Nightcrawlers CD on Big Beat, Charlie was asked to leave the group in late '66 because he was causing some friction, preferring to hang out with his girlfriend than rehearse.

He duly left The Nightcrawlers and relocated from Daytona Beach, Florida to Miami, where he was attending University and formed a new group called Conlon & The Crawlers. This combo only released two 45s on the Marlin label which are very good indeed and yet surprisingly they haven't enjoyed much attention.

'You're Comin' On' is a broody fuzz punker whilst the other side 'I Won't Tell' is clearly influenced by Conlon's earlier hit 'Little Black Egg'....Both songs were produced by Steve Alaimo.
