The Honeycombs First Album (Released in . as "Here Are The Honeycombs") (UK Pye NPL 18097, US Interphon IN-88001, 1964). The Honeycombs were an English beat/pop group of the 1960s. Their most distinguishing mark was their female drummer, Honey Lantree. One night the group, known then as The Sheratons, was playing in a London pub, The Mildmay Tavern in the Balls Pond Road. At the audition in Meek's studio in Holloway Road, they played Howard and Blaikley's "Have I the Right?" which Meek recorded. The group's founder Martin Murray had worked as a hairdresser, Honey Lantree being his assistant. They decided to combine his profession with the name of the drummer, and changed their name to The Honeycombs. They were signed to the Pye record label.
