British Invasion: May 29th, 1965

April 23, 2012

Paul & Barry Ryan

Well, they didn’t make much of a mark as Invaders – easy to see (and hear) why.  They were twin brothers who experienced mild success the U.K. emerging in 1965 and eventually charting with 10 singles in their homeland but none as a duo in the U.S.  Barry Ryan charted once in the U.S. with “Eloise” topping out at number 86 in late 1968.  The song ran to number 2 in the U.K.
