Downliners Sect

Downliners Sect

DOWNLINERS SECT. British rhythm and blues band of the beat-boom era active between 1963-1966. Stylistically, they were similar to The Yardbirds / The Pretty Things and The Rolling Stones but despite a strong following and releasing many singles they failed to be a commercial success. Critic Richie Unterberger wrote: "The Sect didn't as much interpret the sound of Chess Records as attack it, with a finesse that made the Pretty Things seem positively suave in comparison". They subsequently modified their musical style and after an EP of 'sick' songs (eg "I Want My Baby Back") they experimented with both country ("The Country Sect") and rock ("Rock Sect's In"). They later collaborated with Billy Childish and released two albums under the name Thee Headcoats Sect.
