    Biography :

    like the fascinators and the clusters, the Markels came from the bushwick section of Brooklyn. They formed in 1958 when members were all between fifteen and seventeen years of age. They sang in the same venues as those other groups.


    Like the clusters, they solicited Bobby Robinson at Fury Records. Bobby liked them but could do nothing for them. There was R&M Records, in the Bushwick area, that liked the Markels and set um recording session for them.

    The Markels    

    Later in the Summer of 1958, R1M released "The Letter of love" and " Darling i really love you". Initially the record did well, especially in Baltimore, but it faded quickly.
