After arriving in London the band recorded a number of songs with Ted Albert at EMI's Abbey Road Studios , but these were deemed unsuitable by United Artists Records and Albert was removed as producer. The band was then teamed with freelance producer Shel Talmy , who had achieved great success with his production for the Who and the Kinks . United Artists also felt that the band's song writing was too "unsophisticated" for the competitive UK market. The label had already released the Wright/Young composition "Come And See Her" as a single in the UK on 15 July and it had not sold well. Dutch-born Vanda, now having a stronger grasp of English, replaced Wright as Young's song writing partner at this point.

Snowy was several years older than the rest of the band, and already married with a daughter. At first he took on the role of leading and managing the group; he suggested their stage outfits and it was he who came up with their name: The Easybeats, which of course included that all-important reference to The Beatles. The next step was the adoption of "anglicised" stage names for the two Dutch members of the group -- Hendrickus Vandenburg became Harry Vanda, and Dingeman Vandersluys became Dick Diamonde. With the group established, they rehearsed solidly for two months, and over the latter half of 1964 they began playing at dances and clubs, often for no fee.
