The Tremeloes: Call Me Number One

The assembled crowd looks singularly unimpressed, perhaps because the band's instruments aren't plugged in, but The Tremeloes reached number two in the UK singles chart with this in 1969.

I detect the influence of The Beatles here, which is ironic. In 1962 Decca signed Brian Poole and The Tremeloes in preference to the lovable mop tops.

Later. I meant to add that I recall a Where Are They Now? programme from 1973 which showed Brian Poole working as a butcher. His Wikipedia entry suggests he was still involved with the music business too.
