Biography"Ain't Gonna Kiss Ya", a #81 hit on Billboard in early 1963 but a much bigger hit in the Los Angeles area, was composed by James Marcus Smith, aka P.J. Proby. The record was the object of a very hasty, and rather fine, West Coast cover version by Suzie Clark on the Rendezvous label. The song was also rendered for the UK market by Simone Jackson (Piccadilly), Jean Martin (Decca) and, most famously, the Searchers (Pye)."After Last Night", another Proby song, was first cut by the Chiffons onReprise (not the "He's So Fine" gals, the Los Angeles lot). Jackie De Shannon did a good version too (Liberty), as did the Rev-Lons (also Reprise). Both of the Ribbons' Marsh 45s were produced by former Teddy  Bear, and old Phil Spector chum, Marshall Leib. The Ribbons probably recorded under further pseudonyms, such as Ribbons, Sequins, Buttons, Bows(sic).           See Info!
