The story of The Tremeloes begins way back in 1958...
However, in 1962 was their infamous audition for Decca Records. Now any true fan will know that this was the time they beat a Liverpool band called 'The Beatles' to the post and got the record deal. This went down in musical history! They then changed their name to 'Brian Poole and the Tremeloes.'
In 1963 they had their first successful single with 'Twist and Shout', which reached the top 10. Which was followed by a string of successful records, including their next single 'Do You Love me', which topped the UK charts. The line up of th band carried on until 1966 when Brian Poole decided to take his own venture into a solo career. Brian and The Tremeloes went their seperate ways.
As The Tremeloes they adapted their style and band members. With Alan Howard's departure came the arrival of Len 'Chip' Hawkes (who eventually left to manage his son Tony's career) and Dave Mudden. In February 1967 the Cat-Stevens song 'Here Comes My Baby' was not only their first hit without Brian, but also the first time that they could position a song in the US-charts. Only two months later they had their classic hit 'Silence Is Golden', a No. 1 in the UK and with very high rankings in Germany and the USA.
Over the years both the band members and the direction of the band have changed. However, the band still hold that pure talent and zest they had decades ago. With 2 origional members still in the band and some new, but talented faces, The Tremeloes are bound to go down a storm. The question is 'Do You Love Them'... yes you do!!
