The Escapades


Best known because of their 1966 one “I Inform No Lays,” the Escapades formed in Memphis in 1964, evolving in to the Jesters after some lineup adjustments in 1965. Although Jesters (who included Sam Phillips’ boy, Jerry Phillips, on electric guitar) lower a 1966 one for Sun Information, it had been without their first singer and major songwriter, Tommy Minga, who still left to form a fresh version from the Escapades by the end of 1965. “I Inform No Lays” may be the greatest of the four tracks they released on two 1966 singles, that have the type of pouty attitude and piercing body organ common to very much garage pop from the period. “I Inform No Lays” can be well above the common for the design, however, gaining a location on the 5th level of Pebbles, the very first considerable 1960s garage rock and roll series. The Escapades split up when many members had been drafted by the end of 1966. Three from the four tunes from their couple of singles, and a previously unissued monitor, are on the Jesters Compact disc compilation Cadillac Males: SUNLIGHT Masters.
