Dave Clark formed the band in 1958, and was the band's drummer, placing his drum kit at the front of the stage, with the guitarists and organ to his rear and sides. He established business deals which allowed him to produce the band's recordings and gave him control of the master recordings. Originating in North London, the band was promoted as the vanguard of the "Tottenham Sound", a response to the Mersey Beat stable managed by Brian Epstein. From the outset, the band's sound was complemented by the inclusion of a saxophone. They had a series of hits, including "Glad All Over" that in January 1964 knocked the Beatles from the number one position on the UK Singles Chart.
