Oh yes---I saw him backed by Brinsly-Swartz (sp?) around 1979/80 and he was great. 'Ninety-Six Tears', etc. I think Rockpile opened, so doubleplusgood.
yup - another GP to admire/enjoy
and others from Stiff Records, 'cos, as they said back in the day:
"if it isn't Stiff, it's not worth a f##k"

I’m not aware he ever made a splash in the US, but a few of us knew him!
Squeezing Out Sparks was fantastic. Local Girls, Discovering Japan, etc. were great singles.
This one, every time it plays... my eyes get all red. Not sure what that's about.
"... pull your skin like wrapping paper 'round my heart."
Wow what a metaphor. If I tried my whole life I couldn't come up with anything like that.
This is the one that always got me. No doubt what this one's about.
One of the greatest debut albums ever.
I think the arrival of punk and Elvis Costello stole some of his thunder and kept him from being bigger.
One of my favorites from the first album.
I did a solo show for him once in the late 1990s. He was very nice and made lots of time for his fans after the show. Also he played through my Deluxe-Amp.
I saw him twice live in Philadelphia in the 1990's, both times he was great. Just kind of an under-the-radar talent, I suppose. Tons of really good songs, but not really MTV-friendly, back in the day when that was required.
I saw him when I was 16 , he was the support act to Thin Lizzy on the live and dangerous tour on the home town gig in Dublin. A fantastic show
Holy crap, I'll bet it was. RIP Phil
Probably my favorite GP tune.
This one is definitely in my top ten GP & The Rumour songs:
I like everything about this song; the minor key, the beat, the percussion, the guitars, and the keyboard, are all top notch!
I know what you’re saying. I think his songs were too cool for MTV IMO.
