In the early 1960s orchestra leader Bert Kaempfert signed unknowns Tony Sheridan and the Beat Brothers to Polydor. The Beat Brothers, of course, were actually The Beatles, and less than two years later, with a new drummer and new haircuts and now signed to Parlophone, became the one of the biggest and most influential groups the world has ever seen. According the film The Filth and the Fury, Polydor was also one of the companys that took interest into the Sex Pistols in 1976, but lost to EMI.
