The Victors !



Thanks to Richie Unterberger for the bio !
The Victors were a mid-1960s Minneapolis garage band noted for including two future members of the Litter, Jim Kane (on bass) and Denny Waite (on vocals).
Kane's friend Warren Kendrick recorded five unreleased cover songs with them, eventually issued on the 1993 CD The Scotty Story, which collects 30 Kendrick-produced tracks from several acts.
These five tracks were competent covers of British Invasion tunes by Them and the Yardbirds, as well as a couple of soul songs. They're of interest only as artifacts in the Litter story.
In 1966, Kane and Waite would team with a couple of members of another local band, the Tabs, to form the Litter, which went on to greater and more original things, with Kendrick still the producer.

According to Price, when he and Peter Lorre went to view Bela Lugosi's body at Lugosi's funeral, Lorre, upon seeing Lugosi dressed in his famous Dracula cape, quipped, "Do you think we should drive a stake through his heart just in case?"
