SRC

Profile:
US psychedelic rock band from Birmingham, Michigan and active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Originally called The Scot Richard Case, which was shortened to SRC.

Gary Quackenbush, Glenn Quackenbush, and Steve Lyman (2) were formerly members of The Fugitives (10), and when that group broke up their manager Jeep Holland suggested they get together with Scott Richardson (4) who was in another local group called The Chosen Few.

The band's name came about by shortening Scott's surname to "Richard" and using guitarist Steve Lyman's middle name 'Case'. Holland took the band into the recording studio, releasing the I'm So Glad / Who Is That Girl? single on his A-Square Records label, which became a major local hit. However, as the group evolved, the band found themselves at odds with Holland, who they fired as their manager. Holland responded by releasing an unreleased track "Get the Picture", which was credited to The Old Exciting Scot Richard Case.

The group shortened their name to SRC, and landed a record deal with Capitol Records, releasing three albums for the label before getting dropped in 1971. The band had assembled enough material for a fourth LP, which was eventually released as Lost Masters.

A small local label Big Casino Records released the single Born To Love, but it attracted little attention. The band then changed their name and began playing shows under the name Blue Scepter, releasing a single on Rare Earth in 1973.
