Brian Poole & The Tremelos Brian Poole & The Tremelos
Originally the band called themselves the Tremilos, and had no lead vocalist. They came together while all still pupils at Park Modern School in Barking, Essex. Somewhat arbitrarily, Brian Poole was selected for the role of lead singer- as he wore suitable glasses he most closely resembled the group's idol, Buddy Holly, who they'd seen perform live at the East Ham Granada in 1958.

They had to wait until 1962 for the opportunity to record for the first time under their own name at Decca- although they had previously recorded for the studios as backing musicians for other artistes. Stories that the group had been chosen at audition in preference to the Beatles- who were indeed turned down by Decca at that time- are apocryphal. To further complicate the relationship with the Beatles, Brian and the Tremeloes' first hit big with "Twist And Shout"- a song first recorded by the Isley Brothers, but now associated with the fab four because they took the song to #2 in the US chart. However, in the UK the title appeared only on a Beatles EP and it was Brian Poole and the Tremeloes who took the chart honours.

A series of hits followed this success including their splendid #1, "Do You Love Me". The link with Buddy Holly was then further strengthened with the release of 'Someone, Someone' in 1964. This was a song presented to them by Holly's former manager Norman Petty who also played the piano on the disc.
