    They even sang at the Apollo Theatre in New York city on the Famous Wednesday night talent show. They also happened to make their first professional recording in New York City. The record never made any money for them, but the Quills had fun doing and promoting it. About two years later, the band will record two new songs, this time in Philadelphia. "You Think You're Cute" and "I Want To Know" will be released under the strange name of Incinerators on the Sound-Dex label.
