 Independent label: The Tremeloes are an English beat group founded in 1958 in Dagenham, Essex, They formed as Brian Poole and the Tremoloes (the spelling of Tremoloes was soon changed because of a spelling mistake in an Essex newspaper) influenced by Buddy Holly and The Crickets. On New Years Day, 1962, Decca, looking for a Beat group, auditioned two promising young bands: Brian Poole and the Tremeloes and a somewhat similar combo (also heavily influenced by Buddy Holly) from Liverpool called The Beatles. Decca chose Brian Poole and the Tremeloes over the Beatles, reportedly based on location the Tremeloes were from the London area, making them more accessible than the Liverpool-based Beatles. The Tremeloes proved to be a very talented band in their own right and had a successful career. Like the Beatles, the band seamlessly combined rock and roll with a variety of other genres.The original quintet consisted of lead vocalist Brian Poole, lead guitarist Ricky West, Rhythm Guitarist/keyboardist Alan Blakley, bassist Alan Howard and drummer Dave Munden.
