"Three schoolgirls, Serene Wee (13), her sister, Merlina Wee (12), and their cousin, Bernedette De Souza (12), won the Radio and Television Singapura Talentime contest for 1967/68 and as part of their prize got to record two EPs with RCA.
"On the first EP they recorded the song that won them the prize, I Believe, and also Lace Covered Window, Breaking Up Is Hard To Do, and Never My Love. The latter song, made famous by The Association, but recorded by many other artists, is the one that I include here. The Tidbits were backed on this EP by popular Singapore band The Trailers."
"On their second EP, also in 1968, The Tidbits were backed by The X’periment and then went back to being schoolgirls."
Here is a little short film introducing a "girl group musical" Stuart Murdoch from Belle and Sebastian has been writing and producing. I don't know if this has ever come up here before but Belle and Sebastian are one of my favorite modern bands, and Murdoch one of my favorite recent songwriters, although before I watched this I had never seen video of him singing. The girls, who were found through newspaper adverts, are all kind of adorable. Looks like it could be an interesting project. via I like.
