What evidence can I provide? Just conjecture and circumstantial. Local legend has The Fugitives from Bloomington. I can cite a 1966 Indiana University yearbook showing co-eds dancing to the Fugitives (yet not showing a photo of the band). And lastly, Mike Markesich, the guru of research and the author of "Teenbeat mayhem", cites the band as from Bloomington.
Oh hell, let's hear some songs! The proper side is a cover of Charlie Rich's "Lonely Weekends", done well but nothing to write home about. Flip that 45 over and behold - another cover tune - Ike Turner's "Sticks and Stones". If you are going to play the college circuit, probably better to do the top 40 rather than your own tunes.
Ok team, let's find these guys and give them their due!
