Fanny Adams

Fanny Adams were a hard-rock/blues band comprised of Australian musicians based in London, England. Guitarist Vince Melouney was a founding member of the Aztecs and served in the 1967–68 lineup of the Bee Gees. Vocalist Doug Parkinson had fronted his own psych-rock band In Focus, which also included Welsh-born drummer Johnny Dick, who did prior stints in the Aztecs and Max Merritt & The Meteors.

As Fanny Adams, they released a self-titled album on MCA in 1971. Their cover of the Bee Gees’ “Got to Get a Message to You” was issued as a single with a non-LP b-side. Parkinson followed the project with a soul-rock solo album, No Regrets, on Polydor in 1973. Further solo releases and band activities commenced in the 1980s.
