Ironically named 1960s group from England. Their top 40 U.S. hit is "My Baby's Dead."

From comedian George Carlin's parody of fast-talking, say-nothing top 40 disc jockeys: "Wonderful WINO (Top-40 Disc Jockey)" off his 1967 debut album,Take-Offs and Put-Downs. Carlin sings some of their song.

Possibly a reference to real 1960s band The Nashville Teens, who were also from England.
