A single was released on 10/3/75 which I assume was "Shake My Head And Leave". The first album was released 2/20/76. The second single: "Doc...

Re: TV Appearances

Question for Chris. So how did it fly with Roy and Steve when Steve was being placed out front there and miming Roy's vocals. Ummmm, whose idea was that? Jo 8) A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do......the frikkin' song was a hit and it was sung by the bloody drummer per Mutt's insistence...........

Re: Breaking News: CITY BOY AT THE BEEB IN 1975

A good find, mein heir! I checked the trusty diaries and discovered that we recorded the BBC "In Concert" gig at the Paris Theatre on December 11th 1975. At the bottom of the page in the diary I see some rather confusing notes......61 gigs in 1975.....73 so far (Must be total since inception) 107 re...

Re: Studio performance video - Hap ki do kid

I remember him using that kit when I saw them play with Hall and Oates. The drums kind of looked like alphorns to me. And they had a very...what am I trying to say now???...intense,resonate, POWERFUL sound live that I don't think was translated as much to the albums. I'm no expert by any means, but...
