History

The Gremmies

1964 – 1965

Spring, 1964: A new band forms called The Gremmies.  The lineup is: Jim Larkin (Southwest High School) on rhythm guitar and lead vocals; Jim Belleau (DeLaSalle High School) on lead guitar and vocals; Tom Kain (Southwest High School) on bass guitar; and Pete Huber (Benilde High School) on drums and vocals.  The band obtains their strange name from the title of a 1963 novelty song on Capitol Records, “Some Gremmie Stole My Hair Bleach”, recorded by Jack Marshall, a successful guitarist, record producer and composer in Los Angeles.

The band plays all cover songs, including numerous songs by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, and play frat parties and high school dances, most of which are at DeLaSalle High School and Southwest High School, both in Minneapolis. 

October, 1965: The band breaks up. 

UPDATE

December, 2010: Pete Huber reports the band recorded one of their jobs on a reel to reel tape, however, the location of the tape is unknown.
