A rocksteady duo consisting of Wentworth Vernal and Lloyd Parks, the Termites' career was a rather short one, although they did manage a big hit in "Have Mercy Mr. Percy" in the late '60s and tracked enough for a single album, Do the Rock Steady, while working almost exclusively with producer Coxsone Dodd at Studio One. Vernal eventually retired from the Jamaican music business, but Lloyd Parks went on to a long and respected career as both a bass player and singer, in time forming his own band, We the People. We the People is probably best known for backing Dennis Brown and numerous other reggae singers on international tours.
