Boasting four writers, singers and multi-instrumentalists who, between them, also handled production, engineering and arrangement duties, Fickle Pickle had the wit, cynicism, hooks, harmonies and technical dexterity to bridge the barren years between the demise of The Beatles and the eventual arrival in late 1972 of their kindred spirits 10cc. Fickle Pickle consisted of former members of the bands The Smoke (Cliff Wade, Geoff Gill), Orange Bicycle (Wil Malone) and Red Dirt (Steve Howden), who also worked as sound engineers and producers at North London's Morgan Studios. Danny Beckerman (Pussy/Fortes Mentum) helped out as a musician and songwriter in the bands early days. In August 1970, Fickle Pickle published a cover version of Paul McCartney's song Maybe I'm Amazed as a single in the UK the USA and the Netherlands,where it climbed to No. 36 in the Top 40 in the spring of 1971. In the autumn of 1971, California Calling, written by Gill and Beckerman reached number 26. Due to this success in the Netherlands in 1972 released an album, Sinful Skinful. That album, plus singles, B sides, previously unreleased tracks, outtakes, alternate versions and live material has been lovingly compiled into a 3 CD set
