[b][l=Treasure Isle] Studio Band [/b]

The Supersonics were formed by [a=Tommy McCook] after [a=Skatalites, The] split up due to [a=Don Drummond]' murdering his girlfriend in 1965. McCook left Studio One and joined [a=Arthur "Duke" Reid] label [l=Treasure Isle]. Members were old partners from [a=Skatalites, The] times and a bunch of new musicians. They were one of Jamaica's most productive studio backing bands. Releases are credited to them or to [a=Supersonics, The]. Tommy led them until they disintegrated on a trip to Montreal Canada in 1969.
