Biography

This funky sextet revolved around a nucleus of brothers Billy, Mike and Kenneth Young from West Virginia, USA. After moving to East Orange, New Jersey, in 1970 they formed the Young Movement with Buddy ‘Hank’ Hankerson, an ex-member of Aurra (bass/keyboards/guitar) and Dave Reyes (drums). The group changed their name to Flashflood in 1974 and recorded with Slave and Aurra. When vocalist and sole distaff member Jackie Thomas joined in 1979 they first recorded as Young & Co. Among the first three tracks they demoed was ‘I Like What You’re Doing’, which helped secure a contract with Brunswick Records. When released, this single reputedly sold over 250, 000 in the USA alone, yet never made the R&B or pop chart there. It did, however, go all the way into the UK Top 20 in 1980 when picked up by the newly formed Excalibur label. The group later recorded for Sounds Of London and Atlantic Records but never tasted success again.
