Limey folk rock quartet. From the Charlton comic book, Go-Go, issue #5 (February 1967). Their big hit is "Wailin' Welfare Blues #69!" Every older white male involved in the process from their manager to the recording engineer thinks they're so horrible, they have to be a hit. And they are! Sort of satirical, with all the subtlety of brass knuckles.

Lyrics: "Well here comes the man, runnin' like heck. Betcha he's bringing my welfare check."
