Formed in San Jose, California, USA, in 1964, the Syndicate Of Sound were known for one classic garage band/punk single, ‘Little Girl’, a US Top 10 hit on Bell Records in 1966. The group consisted of Don Baskin (9 October 1946, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA; vocals/saxophone), John Sharkey (b. 8 June 1946, Los Angeles, California, USA; guitar/keyboards), Jim Sawyers (lead guitar), Bob Gonzales (bass) and John Duckworth (b. 18 November 1946, Springfield, Missouri, USA; drums). After an unsuccessful single for the Scarlet label, they recorded ‘Little Girl’ for the local Hush Records. It was a regional hit and picked up for national distribution by Bell, for which the group also recorded an album. The group placed two other minor singles on the charts, one later that year for Bell and another in 1970 on Buddah Records. They also recorded unsuccessfully for Capitol Records before disbanding in 1970.
