With Les Dixon ' s return, the band continued as before, playing very much the same venues. In early 1959 the Saints split up. Ray Robbins, disillusioned with the band ' s lack of success, found a ' regular job ' (although he would still be occasionally play with the Zodiac All Stars ) and George Brunker moved back to the east coast. Prior to George Brunker leaving, he coerced Les into making an acetate recording. The session was held with future Clarion label owner Martin Clarke.  The recording took place at Martin Clarke ' s house in Mosman Park. Les did Giddy Up A Ding Dong, At The Hop, Saints Rock and Roll and Endless Sleep . The personnel on the session were Les (vocal/rhythm guitar), George Brunker (drums), occasional Saints saxophonist Jimmy Cook, as well as an unknown lead guitarist and a middle aged lady on piano. As far as Les can remember Martin Clarke organized the piano and lead guitar. In early 1959, Les Dixon joined the band as additional vocalist. As Les recalls, one afternoon he and Saints band mate Johnny Agnew heard a new group were playing at the Bamboo nightclub in Bentley. The band, of course, was T he Zodiacs . Impressed by the rocking sounds, Les and Johnny soon gravitated to Daisy ' s florist. With their arrival the band ' modestly ' renamed themselves Clive Higgins and The Zodiac All - Stars featuring Les Dixon . The All-Stars consisted of Clive, Les (Vocals/rhythm guitar), Brian, Tommy, Johnny Agnew (lead guitar) and Jimmy Cook on saxophone. Toward the end of 1959, The Zodiac All- S tars decided to cut an acetate recording. One of the main reasons, given by both Clive and Les, was to hand out to the girls during shows. Entering the Bale Sound Studio in Cremorne Arcade, Hay Street, Perth, T he Zodiacs recorded four tracks. The Bale S tudio was basically one small room, with a sound booth. There was one microphone to record the band, while another mike was fed into an empty office next door for echo. The tracks recorded were an original number by Les, Stingy Mingy Mama (written for a ' mean ' girlfriend), as well as a flat out version of At the Hop with wild piano courtesy of Brian and two numbers , Hold Me Tight and Danny Boy with Clive on vocals. The personnel on the session were Clive (vocal/rhythm guitar), Les (vocal/rhythm guitar), Johnny Agnew (lead guitar), Brian Prior (piano), Tommy Menzel (drums) and Peter Fairbrother (saxophone). The band sent copies of the acetate to Festival records, but nothing eventuated. The beginning of 1960 saw many changes to T he Zodiac All- S tars. Les Dixon left the group for a more regular source of income. Recently married Les decided to play and sing for show bands like the Norman Wrightson Dance Band , before starting his own show band, T he Aristo-Cats , in1961.

On 20 Rock & Roll Hits of the 50s & 60s , Thee Milkshakes attempt to inject new life into some old chestnuts and succeed, to a point. Billy Childish and Mickey Hampshire both shred things up vocally and their guitars growl and sting in all the right places, while the lo-fi recording gives the set an authentic feel full of vim and vigor. Their choice of songs to cover is both happily inspired ( the Shirelles ' "Boys," Link Wray 's "Comanche," Eddie Cochran 's "Something Else," Chan Romero 's "Hippy Hippy Shake") and sadly pedestrian ( Chuck Berry 's "Carol," and "Sweet Little Sixteen," Barrett Strong 's "Money," Little Richard 's "Rip It Up"). One can't help thinking that they could have dug a little deeper to find some songs that aren't burned into the memory of everyone who has heard them more than once. Perhaps their intention was to hip the kids of the day (late '80s) to some classic rock & roll tunes. If that is the case, it is an admirable goal, and maybe this record did turn some kids on to the original hitmakers. To anyone else, this record is a bit of a waste of time. Better to latch on to a Milkshakes ' record made up of Childish and Hampshire original compositions.
