THE MYSTICS WERE FORMED IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK IN THE LATE 1950s. ORIGINALLY KNOWN AS THE OVERONS THEIR NAME CHANGE CAME ABOUT AFTER EACH MEMBER OF THE GROUP WROTE A NAME THEY LIKED ON A PIECE OF PAPER AND THE MYSTICS WAS THE NAME DRAWN OUT OF THE HAT. THE MYSTICS WERE SIGNED TO LAURIE RECORDS AND SOON HAD A HIT IN “HUSHABYE”. THE SONG QUICKLY BECAME A FAVOURITE OF ALAN FREED AND HE FEATURED IT AT THE CLOSE OF HIS SATURDAY NIGHT BIG BEAT SHOW.
