From "On The Beat" - Christchurch Star circa 1964
A new group to take it's place in New Zealand's world of pop is Peter Dawkin's own combination, The Others. The group made a hit recently when they played, together with Les Street and The Alleys, at the Temuka Citizen's Hall, about twelve miles outside Timaru, to a capacity crowd. This distinctive rockin' blues group has come up with a sound all it's own and will almost certainly become well-known in Christchurch. Peter Dawkins, the leader of the group, was formerly of the now-disbanded Strangers. Originally from Timaru, he played for several groups, but was not satisfied with playing at small dances so he joined The Falcons, at that time Timaru's top group, and travelled with the band to Christchurch. Once in this city the group found work was not as plentiful as they had imagined and eventually broke up.
