The Decades

Akron, Ohio 1963-5
The Decades started as students in Ellet High School in Akron as a Ventures styled instro combo. Constant gigs at local teen dances gave them monentum to record their 1st 45 at the WAKR radio station. 300 copies of "Come On Pretty Baby" and "Strange Worlds" (an instrumental that harkened back to their Ventures period) were sold quickly. In late '64 producer Terry Rose, then based in Canton, approached the group with a idea to make a novelty record relating several teen pop culture trends. The result was the indescribable genius of "The Rat's Revenge".
