By 1968, Griffin and organist Verden Allen had joined the band. Although the group toured and recorded in Italy as the Doc Thomas Group, their gigs in the UK were played under the names of the Shakedown Sound and later, as Silence. Silence recorded demos at Rockfield Studios in Monmouth, Wales, which were shopped to EMI, Polydor, Immediate and Apple with no success. Wildlife (1971) fared even worse (despite gaining the highest UK album chart position of the band's pre-Glam years), and flirted with an overtly country-hippie stance and accordingly (usually) acoustic instrumentation. On 10 October 1970, Mott the Hoople and Bridget St John were showcased on BBC Two's Disco 2. Even though the group was building a decent following, Brain Capers (1971) failed to sell well.

Overend Watts, also known as Pete Overend Watts (born 13 May 1947, Yardley, Birmingham, England – died 22 January 2017) was an English bass guitar player and founding member of rock band Mott The Hoople. He also produced records, the most high profile being for Hanoi Rocks, Dumb Blondes, and the single She Made Everything Groovy for the British indie band The Ogdens.

What are your thoughts on Overend Watts (bass) and Verden Allen (keyboards)? JE: Overend Watts is such a great guy. He’s always been great to me. Back in 1984 he gave me about 12 cassette tapes with all this unreleased stuff on it (a lot of which came out on the 1999 boxed set, a lot that didn’t) with handwritten notes, which was super cool of him. He gave me a money box from his junk shop that obviously I still have, and when I saw him in 2009 at the reunion shows we picked up from where we left off a few years earlier.
