The Small Faces was a British mod group that started up in London back in 1965, and went on to become one of the most influential bands of the 60's. They started out as a [[Main/ScooterRidingMod Mod]] band playing raunchy music influenced by RAndB and {{Soul}}. They were the East London counterpart to West London's Music/TheWho. Indeed, if any band was ever "number two to the Who" in the ScooterRidingMod scene, it would be this one. Yet, frustratingly for them, they failed to crack the US market in the way so many of their contemporaries like Music/TheWho and Music/TheKinks had.

With the ConceptAlbum ''Music/OgdensNutGoneFlake'', the band introduced [[PsychedelicRock psychedelic]] elements to their music, resulting in their [[OneHitWonder most memorable song and biggest American hit]], "Itchycoo Park". However, their success didn't last, and the band disbanded in 1969 (after Marriott infamously quit on New Years Eve 1968), and Lane, Jones and [=McLagan=] joined up with [[Music/TheRollingStones Ronnie Wood]] and [[Music/RodStewart Rod Stewart]] of The Jeff Beck Group to form a new combo called Music/{{Faces}}, while Steve Marriott teamed up with future superstar [[Music/PeterFrampton Peter Frampton]] in Humble Pie. They did partially reunite from 1975 to 1978 (with Rick Wills of Music/{{Foreigner}} and Jimmy [=McCulloch=] of Music/{{Wings}} participating), though that didn't last. Somewhat ironically, considering their rivalry, Jones would become [[Music/TheWho The Who's]] drummer after [[AuthorExistenceFailure Keith Moon's death]]. Both groups became successful in TheSeventies and are now counted as important innovators in the BluesRock genre. [=McCulloch=] died of a heroin overdose in 1979, Marriott died in a house fire in 1991, Lane succumbed to complications from Multiple Sclerosis in 1997, and [=McLagan=] died from a massive stroke in 2014.

Like Music/TheBeatles and TheWho, a major influence on the late seventies/early eighties ModRevival and the {{Britpop}} genre in TheNineties.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Steve Marriott
* BlackSheepHit: "Itchycoo Park", which was one of their less bluesy numbers.
** Also "Lazy Sunday" which was probably influenced by TheKinks, and was a probable influence ''on'' Music/{{Blur}}'s "Parklife".



* OneHitWonder: In America, "Itchycoo Park" was the band's only notable hit.
