The Interns (band)

The Interns were a British Rock group that consisted of Rikki Alan (bass/Vocals), brother Gerry Alan (Piano/Guitar/Vocals), Mark Goodwin (Drums) and Mike Parker (Lead Guitar). The group was put together by Musical Instrument Industry legend, Ivor Arbiter, initially as a 'vehicle' to promote the brands his company were distributing at that time. These included, Gretsch guitars, Trixon Drums and Paiste Cymbals and Gongs.

The group was managed by the Tito Burns Agency who also managed, Dusty Springfield and The Searchers amongst others and recorded for the Philips record label. They had two singles released in 1964, "Don't You Dare" and "Cry To Me" a cover version of an American record by Brenda Holloway both singles were produced by Bill Landis. The group had some minor success, appearing on the TV shows, 'Thank Your Lucky Stars' and Ready Steady Go before disbanding in 1966.

After the break-up, brothers Rikki and Gerry continued performing as a duo and Mark Goodwin took up a couple of club residencies before joining the Lonnie Donegan Skiffle Group. Goodwin stayed with the Donegan band through the 60's and into the mid 70's before leaving to join the newly formed CBS/Arbiter Ltd (Musical Instrument Manufacturer and Distributors) as Drum Clinician and Promotions Manager.
