Back in the 60’s, well 1962 to be precise The Roulettes were recruited to play as the back-up group to Adam Faith so he could be competition for the other beat bands that were originating in Merseyside. Formed in London, The Roulettes with Faith enjoyed a series of chart hits, backing him on ‘The First Time, I love Being in Love With You, We are in Love, If He Tells You, as well as Someone’s Taken Maria Away, all in the 60’s.
Sadly, on the 27th May 1963 The Roulettes original bass player, John Rogers died after sustaining severe injuries in a car crash – his place as the bass player was filled by Mod Rogan. After signing with Pye Records, The Roulettes started to release their own material – and in 1963 the band moved to Parlophone – unfortunately, none of their own singles reached the charts, and their only album ‘Stakes and Chips’ when released in 1965 had very little success either.
The Roulette joined the Philips Fontana label in 1967 but still, they failed to reach the charts and at the end of that year the group finally broke up.
