Also Williams and Bremmer!
Brilliant combo. I saw them on the 'Seconds of Pleasure' tour at the old Ritz in Manhattan, The Blasters opened. I thought all the dancing was going to cave the floor in.
They were a great combination. I remember Khachaturian being enraged when Dave Edmunds came out with this interpretation of his Sabre Dance:
straight up, love it
That sounds like a superb show. So much awesome in a confined space
By far one of the best shows I've ever seen. Just watching Bremmer work was worth the ticket. And The Blasters were so good they forced Rockpile to up their game, and they did.
These guys became heros of mine when I go My Aim is true when it came out.
This rock boyz>>>
And Lowe had a great groove and pocket for a bass player. McCartneyesque.
Used to do a few Nick Lowe tunes with a cover band in the mid-70s - They Called It Rock, So It Goes, I Knew The Bride, and Breaking Glass.
Have you explored the back catalogue of the Guv'nor himself?
Mickey Jupp. Hero to so many.
Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds, Wilko, The Refreshments, Albert Lee and many more rate Mickey very highly. So many of his songs have been covered without much in the way of credit. Start with 'Red Boot' ( AKA Legend ) and work forward
Many hours of boogie await.
I saw Rockpile at the Armadillo in the late 1970s, they looked like they were having fun!
I’ve seen Nick solo, and with Noise To Go, His Cowboy Outfit, and as a member of Elvis Costello’s band.
Nick’s a brilliant writer, singer and player!
Great hair, too!
this one?... I found it in a second hand record store when I was in highschool... loved the flaming boot...
not sure where it ended up?...
Yep, that one.
It has been released a few times on CD, so you may strike lucky. As a CD, it encapsulates what was to become Brit Pub Rock. Nick, Dr. Feelgood, Dave Edmunds, Kursaal Flyers and a raft of others drank deep from the wellspring of Mickey.
it started with this double LP from the second hand store back in HS.... a compilation of Vertigo Label bands... then we looked for each of the album titles when/if they turned up...
we found so many good bands on this LP... and first heard Black Sabbath before they got big here,,
Clear Blue Sky is great, Gravy Train another band we followed..
A match made in heaven, IMO!
They made more good guitar rock and roll in the 70s than anyone else I can think of.
I’m sure glad they partnered up.
This is the only rock pile I know...knowimsayin'
I took up guitar after hearing "Teacher Teacher".
Just read the book about Nick.
