Herman's Hermits were hugely successful in the mid-1960s, and were much easier to listen to and more accessible than other British Invasion bands. Their first American hit was "Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter", which had been recorded simply as a joke. Soon, more novelty records shot to #1 in the states, but the band simply could not maintain a British audience. This continued until 1966's "No Milk Today". Soon, however, the Monkees had replaced Herman's Hermits as the simple pop rock act, and the Hermits' career declined even further. "There's a Kind of Hush (All Over the World)" engendered a mild revival, but soon disappeared from the charts but the band was effectively over by 1973.
After the group disbanded, Peter Noone enjoyed a brief solo career, having an unlikely hit with David Bowie's, "Oh, You Pretty Things".
On one occasion Victor Lewis-Smith allegedly introduced Peter Noone as "Peter No One of The Tremeloes".
