rocksteady reggae seen live ska indie

The Uniques is the name of more than one band:
1) Jamaican rocksteady 2) 60s US garage band 3) Doo Wop 4) Slovak electroclash

1) The Uniques were a Jamaican rocksteady and reggae vocal group, formed in 1966 and active with varying line-ups until the late 1970s.
The Uniques originally formed as a vocal harmony trio of Roy Shirley, Slim Smith, and Franklyn White, (the latter two from The Techniques) releasing a few singles in 1966 including the R&B influenced "Do Me Good" for Ken Lack's (Keith Calneck) Caltone imprint. The group then disbanded, until late 1967 when Smith formed a new version of the group with Jimmy Riley and Lloyd Charmers. The new line-up debuted with "Watch This Sound", a cover version of Stephen Stills' "For What It's Worth", which was a hit along with a string of subsequent singles, many produced by Bunny Lee, including "My Conversation", which Lee sold to Rupie Edwards, who used the rhythm to create the first one-rhythm album, Yamaha Skank.
Bunny Lee issued a showcase album in the 1970s, and the group name was briefly revived by Riley and Cornell Campbell in 1977 for the album Give Thanks, and again in 1997 with Al Campbell joining Cornell and Riley on the album The Uniques.

2) The Uniques were an American psychedelic garage rock band based in Louisiana, with Joe Stampley at the helm.They were active from 1965 to 1970, recording most of their material at Robin Hood Studios in Tyler, Texas. They released their material on Paula Records of Shreveport, Louisiana. Their two biggest hits were "Not Too Long Ago" and "All These Things", which Stampley would re-record in his country solo career and take to the top of the charts. "All These Things" was written by Art Neville.
In the fall of 2010, The Uniques were inducted into The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame during their 45th anniversary reunion concert at the Piney woods Palace in Springhill, Louisiana. Original members present: Joe Stampley, Bobby Stampley, Ray Mills, Jim Woodfield, and Mike Love.
The song "You Ain't Tuff" was also featured on the Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965–1968 collection.

3) The Uniques were a Chicago-based doo-wop group, active in the early 1960s, recorded by Lenny LaCour, and signed to Demand/Dot Records.

4) The Uniques were a electroclash band fromed in Slovakia, Bratislava around 2006. Based in Berlin they are influenced by its current music scene. The band has changed its name (to avoid confusion) and is now called Nvmeri (latin for numbers).
