Brian Poole & the Tremeloes were an English beat group founded in 1958 in Dagenham, Essex, England. Lead singer Brian Poole left the band in 1966 and the band continued as The Tremeloes. The group formed in 1958 as Brian Poole and the Tremoloes (the name soon being changed thanks to the spelling mistake of a local newspaper), and were initially cast in the Buddy Holly and the Crickets mould. Decca notoriously chose them over The Beatles, whom they had auditioned on the same day.
