The Troggs: Chris The Charmer

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 28 October 1966

THE TROGGS' lead guitarist, Chris Britton looks at women because he likes them — smiles at strangers as though he had known them all his life — smokes like the world were coming to an end — has the manners and charm of a diplomat and answers questions with a deceptive nonchalance which is not necessarily reflective of his true feelings. Like an iceberg he keeps two thirds of his personality out of sight.
