Originally known as The Spades, the Slades were a vocal group from Austin Texas, and attended McCallum High School. Personnel included John Goeke, Don Burch, Tommy Kaspar, Bobby Doyle, and Jimmy Davis.
Their second recording for Domino records was their biggest; "You Cheated" peaked at number 42 in 1958 on the Billboard charts. It was the original recording of the song, recorded before the Los Angeles based Shields covered it. The Shields had the bigger hit with it. The Slades record was still popular enough to earn them a spot on American Bandstand, though.
