Giles Brothers Biography
The Giles brothers were the fraternal rhythm section with six bands namely, Johnny King And The Raiders; Dave Anthony And The Rebels; The Dowland Brothers And The Soundtracks; The Sands; The Interns; Trendsetters Ltd; and The Brain. Six singles were released by the Dowland Brothers and Trendsetters Ltd, with two additional releases by The Trend and The Brain in 1967. Michael and Peter Giles toured with Trendsetters Ltd supporting the original Drifters, backing Bo Diddley, Napoleon X1V and Gene Vincent. They appeared on television shows and played live on several radio broadcasts including BBC Radio 1's Easybeat and the group’s own four programme series.
The Giles Brothers are also famous for being founders of the band Giles Giles and Fripp which eventually metamorphosed into King Crimson, one of the giants of Progressive rock. Mike Giles would be a founder of King Crimson along with Robert Fripp, Ian McDonald and Greg Lake with Peter Giles joining briefly in 1970.
The brothers were a major part of the Bournemouth music scene in the sixties and were members of a number of beat groups of the period. They released numerous singles as members of a number of these groups, many of which were gathered together and released on a compilation album in 2009
