(1963 – 1965)
The Syndicats were Steve Howe's first band. Their three singles on Columbia (EMI) were produced by Joe Meek. When lead guitarist Howe left for Tomorrow in 1965, he was replaced by Ray Fenwick. Fenwick plays lead-guitar on "Crawdaddy Simone". He co-wrote it with Jeff Williams, the bands' keyboardist. That song has recently been covered by The Horrors.
Further members were John Truelove (drums), Kevin Driscoll (guitar), Johnny Lamb (vocals), Paul Holm (drums, last single)
