7,8 Fri.,Sat. / MC-5 , The Chosen Few

*Grande Ballroom* Detroit , MI

(Opening Night)


Daniel O'Connell former The Wha? bassplayer
remembers :

     "The Saturday night of the 'first' Grande date,
The Chosen Few were headlined, but they broke-up
reorganizing as SRC and couldn't make the date."

     "At Northland Russ was passing our the already
printed Seagull posters and got us to replace them.
Of course we didn't headline, we played second or third
place that night. I "think" the MC5 added the Saturday
night to their schedule, pretty sure about this.
But we played the "Saturday" of the first date/Seagull
Poster. Crickety!!!: Russ gave us at least 40 Seagull
posters to pass out. We kept at least 30 or them and
stapled them to my basement ceiling joists!
Not one survived into the late 60's.... kick me HARD!"

[The SRC was called the Scot Richard Case, hence the initials SRC. The group formes from members of the much-appreciated Detroit bands, the Fugitives and the Chosen Few. Gary and Glenn Quackenbush and E.G. Clawson were members of the former, and Scot (along with future Stooges member, Ron Asheton) was from the latter... - Excerpt from the book"SRC-Wizards Deeply Missed" by John Orlich, available at]
