The Fugitives

From: Birmingham, MI, USA

This 1960s Garage rock band started out under the name The Tremelos when Glenn Quackenbush (piano) met Elmer Clawson (drums). The rest of the band consisted of John Boyles (bass), Rett Nichols (guitar) and Glenn’s younger brother Gary. They were the first band discovered by the Detroit teen club and record company The Hideout, also becoming the first band to be recorded on the associated Hideout label. Their album was originally recorded in a basement and then re-recorded to include fake applause and audience approval. The album was a mix between covers (‘Louie, Louie’, ‘Love Potion No. 9’) and originals (‘Friday At The Hideout’). Only 500 copies were pressed and consequently they now sell for quite a lot of money. Back in 1965, copies were sold at the club for $3. The core of the band evolved into the Scot Richard Case (SRC).
