There are at least 7 groups called The Crescendos. 1) The Cresendos, 60s garage rock from Wanganui, New Zealand 2) The Crescendos 60s, Jazz, USA 3) The Crescendos 60 UK 4) The Crescendos DEU, 60s Rock 5) The Crescendos, Malaysia, 60s Jazz 6) The Crescendos, Formed 1957, Nashville, TN, United States 7) The Crescendos, 50s _________________________ 1) The Cresendos, 60s garage rock from Wanganui, New Zealand. The Cresendos consisted of Graham Johnston lead guitar, Max Johnston rhythm guitar (or is it Graham Johnson and Max Johnson? - I've seen their last names spelled with a 't' and without), Ian Irvine bass guitar, and Bryan Stewart drums. The band began in 1965 in the small coastal city of Wanganui on the north island, about halfway between Wellington to the south and New Plymouth to the north. In 1966 Allied International A&R man Fred Noad saw them at a talent contest. Supposedly they recorded their only 45 in a local warehouse.

The label released it at the start of 1967 with their name misspelled on the label - except their name was misspelled in the first place and you could say the label got it right. "Now She's Mine" is a great original by Ian Irvine. The vocals and lyrics are excellent and Graham Johnston really helps distinguish the song with the variety of sounds he lays over it. The neat buzzy tone comes from a home-made fuzz pedal created by someone from the local post office. "I Want Your Love" is a ballad with a cool echo effect on the opening chords. It was written by Johnston - Irvine - Berryman. 7) The Crescendos, a New Jersey Band, recorded "A Fellow Needs a Girl" by Rogers and Hammerstein and an original song "Wild Cat", which was initially labeled "Black Cat" but changed.

The song "Wild Cat" was a minor hit in LA along with a "A Fellow Needs a Girl". Both songs had air-play from WNJR, Newark, NJ by Danny Stiles, the Kat Man. The band consisted of 5 members; Tony Petronella (Sax & Vocal), Frankie Knox (Accorgan & Lead Vocals), Sal Luizza (Lead Guitar & Vocal), Tony Menichino (Standup Bass & Vocal) and Joe Pazsik (drums). The band played in the late 50s, early 60s.

Their ages ranged from 12 to 17 years old. Frankie Knox, Tony Petronella and Sal Luizza were born in Newark, NJ. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
