The Lost Generation (band)

The Lost Generation (band)

The Lost Generation was an American soul group from Chicago, Illinois. The members began singing together in 1969, after Jesse Dean completed time in the United States Army, and shortly after forming, Lowrell Simon's childhood friend, Gus Redmond (who was by that time promotional head at Brunswick Records), had the group record with producer Carl Davis. The result of these sessions was the single "The Sly, Slick and the Wicked", which became a hit in the US, and whose sales earned Brunswick Records enough profits to buy itself out and dissociate itself from its parent company, Decca Records, that same year. [ [http://wm08.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:w9fpxq85ld6e~T1 Biography] , Allmusic.com] The group scored a few further hits, and disbanded in 1974, with members Brownlee and Fred Simon later joining Mystique, and Lowrell Simon embarking on a successful career as a solo artist.
