Bio:

Paul Lyttle and Linda Martin left Chips in 1972 to form Lyttle People. They were managed by Ted O'Neill. There appear to have been two distinct lineups of Lyttle People. The first lineup included Billy McCoy (ex Just Five, Soul Foundation, Axe) and Mike Brown (ex Alleykatz). The second included Liam Taggart (ex Sweet Neglect) , Barry Woods (later in Clubsound), Alan Holland (of Friends) and drummer Joe Hanratty, later replaced by Jimmy Compton (ex Sweet Neglect).

Their first and probably only release was a cover of "Let's Dance", originally done by the long-lived dutch soft rock act The Cats. The b-side was another cover, Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face". The single was released on Play Records in November 1972.

Lyttle People split in November 1973 with most of the band (Taggart, Woods, Holland & Compton) joining Mick O'Brien in the reformed Real McCoy. Paul Lyttle and Linda Martin rejoined Chips sometime in 1974.
