Früt formed in 1967 and went through the psychedelic phase, the blues phase, and we were called Früt Of The Loom. What happened was that we got together with Mike Quatro Productions, He enabled them to do a lot of cool things, like play with Jimi Hendrix, tour with Creedence Clearwater, and we even backed up Chuck Berry one time.
When you remember the Detroit music scene of the late sixties and early seventies, the MC5, Ted Nugent, SRC, the Stooges and Bob Seger are all names that commonly come to mind.
Then there is the band Frut.
During the same time the MC5 and the Stooges were playing high energy rock ’n’ roll and forging a musical prototype for what would later become punk, Frut was playing sock hop tunes from the Eisenhower era. When Frut took the stage, however, nostalgia was the last thing on the menu.
