Save My Soul (Wimple Winch)

17 JUNE 1966


Wimple Winch released the single 'Save My Soul', which was very popular in Liverpool but failed to chart nationally.

This band had started out in the Merseybeat scene as 'Four Just Men', becoming Wimple Winch in 1966 and adopting what has since become known as the heavy Mod-Sike 'Freakbeat' sound. They never enjoyed any chart success and disbanded in 1967. 

'Save My Soul' was probably the best of their offerings, and the highly distinctive bassline was sampled extensively by Australian hip-hop act Hilltop Hoods in their big 2015 hit 'Crosby Sweater'.
