Formed Birmingham, England, December 1965 - disbanded 1972, The Move were one of the most important British groups of the late 1960’s yet never made a dent in the American market. They began life as one of the most stylishly garbed and musically adventurous outfits. Managed by the Moody Blues manager Tony Secunda the group moved to London and signed with Deram records a subsidiary of Decca Records. The early line up of the group were songwriter Roy Wood, bassist Chris "Ace" Kefford, vocalist Carl Wayne real name (colin tooley), Guitarist Trevor Burton and drummer Bev Bevan.
Their third single "Flowers in the Rain" was the first chart record played on the new radio station BBC Radio 1 when it began broadcasting at 7 a.m. on 30 September 1967, introduced by Tony Blackburn.
