I've lost it for now, but there is an article on the British Library archive describing Diane as Gary's assistant, from '65 or thereabouts. Clearly the reason she keeps popping up outside the Beat Girls.
And we have three DC groups now, the Katy-Dids/Beat Girls, the Lucky Stars, and Desdemonas.
Diane mentions "Here come the pops" on her bio on the site now up for sale. Strangely she says she also appeared in a BBC production of "What Katy Did" (wihich was in 1962), maybe that was the genesis of the group name.
Rather more strangely, the bio says she appeared in the Jo Cook dancers, I think there's more to this attribution than a mistake in a photo archive.
This is an article from Tatler dated 30-04-66, the article itself is really just a general critique of girls fashions, so i wont post the rest. A slightly unflattering picture perhaps, but it shows the other side to the business of dancing in clubs during the week and not all TV glamour. I think it is Flick, Lyn and Babs shown in the photo, so perhaps they did these type of gigs on a rota basis.
I'm pretty sure this is Dee Dee and Flick with Georgie Fame, taken from an article in a dutch magazine called Teenbeat. This is just an enlarged version of the picture and the main text in unreadable (and also in dutch) so i've not reproduced that. The publication date is not stated, but it would be from mid 1966 when he released Get Away i expect. This is likely to be one of the earliest colour pics of Dee Dee and Flick, the others are from the Dickie Valentine show around the same time.
This is another from the same article, i thought it might be Dee Dee on the bike but not sure.
This one is probably from an earlier edition, again not stated. Its again not reproducible in readable quality, but the images are decent, the most interesting is probably the bottom left showing the Beat Girls in white dresses with Gary and it looks like this was the still in the Ruth, Jenny, Lyn line up.
Thank you, Barbv, for confirming that the girl on the picture is Felicity Balfour. Great to know she is a friend of yours. Unfortunately we do not know much about Felicity, but maybe this will change now that you've found this place.
I don't have an exact date Willoway, but since i think that is Flick on the right (she seemed to have a thing for hooped earrings at the time if you look at some other pics of her that year), it is possibly a bit later in the year. This article has another picture from the same day and interestingly also the other Dee Dee picture (running in the street with the clothes) i posted originally, but there is nothing to suggest they were taken at the same time.
The girls mention The Drum Club in their book, p25:
Babs: We were doing the shows in Holland, then Gary got us a gig working in a discotheque in Bond Street, a club called the Drum.
Ruth: They had glass drums with lights underneath and we'd just have to stand there and boogie. Sometimes only one or two people would come in. We were paid £3 a night. It was so demoralising, but we needed the money. I hated it.
Generally don't post clips without pics, but here is an interesting snippet from the Belfast Telegraph 7th Sept, 1965. It's noticeable in several pictures Lyn has a engagement ring then a wedding ring, and this article provides background - she was engaged to Wayne Gibson of Beat Room semi-fame. Wayne Gibson was a small-time pop singer, here's a marvellous clip of when he briefly entered the charts in 1975.
