In late 1967, The Valentines relocated to Melbourne searching for higher success, and soon explored various other significant cities. With a development to the preferred Bubblegum sound late in 1968, the band became extra sought after, particularly among teenage ladies. Nonetheless as the fashion for bubblegum songs wore off, The Valentines had a hard time to keep their musical integrity in spite of a turn towards rock music. With differing opinions within the band concerning musical direction, as well as a much-publicised drugs bust in September 1969, team security began to endure. Although they still had a strong fanbase in particular locations of the country, especially back home in Perth, The Valentines decided to disband agreeably in August 1970.
The band was created in late 1966 with the combinations of Perth groups The Spektors and also The Winstons. They capitalised on the success of both the previous bands, plus the interest produced by having 2 divas in Scott as well as Lovegrove. Influenced by The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, as well as neighborhood celebrities The Easybeats, they enjoyed substantial neighborhood success and released a few singles.
Scott had built a solid reputation as an effective vocalist and also quickly joined Society, and also later AC/DC. Lovegrove found success as a music reporter, as well as guitar player Wyn Milsom ended up being a sound designer.
