    Dave Skinner (born David Ferguson Skinner, 4 July 1946) and Andrew Rose (born Andrew Colin Campbell Rose, 12 March 1946, Edgware, Middlesex) were harmony singers who also wrote much of their own material.
    Andrew Loog Oldham signed these two ex-public schoolboys to his Immediate label in 1966. Their debut 45, Sittin' On The Fence, a Jagger/Richard song was a minor hit, but that was the nearest they got to success.
    The pair recorded four singles ("Sittin' on a Fence" b/w "Baby I Want You"; "Step Out of Line" / "Simplified"; "True Story" / "You're So Good For Me"; "Crystal Ball" / "Why Can't They All Go And Leave Me Alone") and two albums, Own Up and That's All (featuring Vashti Bunyan) between 1966 and 1968 for Immediate. Most of these recordings were pop in the Peter and Gordon/Chad and Jeremy mold, with light orchestral pop/rock arrangements, that sometimes employed a touch of the baroque.
    Their songs have been recorded by Del Shannon ("Life Is But Nothing", Easy to Say"), Chris Farlowe ("You're So Good For Me", Life Is But Nothing"), P. P. Arnold ("Everything Is Gonna be Alright", "You're So Good for Me", "Life Is But Nothing") and Nicky Scott ("Chain Reaction", "Everything Is Gonna be Alright").
    Their only UK Top 40 success as performers was a cover of the Mick Jagger's and Keith Richards' composition "Sittin' on a Fence" (1966). The Stones' version of the song, although recorded in December 1965, was not released on a Stones' album in the US until 1967 and not in the UK (where it again emerged as an album track) until 1969, and so was unknown at the time of the Twice as Much single.
    In 1972, Skinner joined Uncle Dog, a group including vocalist, Carol Grimes. He penned most of the tracks on their album, Old Hat. He was also a member of Clancy. In 1977/8, Skinner toured as the keyboard player with Roxy Music. He also contributed to albums by Phil Manzanera and Bryan Ferry.
