I’d never heard (or seen) Rockpile until I watched this video (“So It Goes”). They seem like a bar band. The vocals are unashamedly British, so I can see why they never broke through in the US. I’m getting turned on to new music all the time now. There’s never been a better time to collect and archive. I can’t believe how many hours I spent digging through record bins in the eighties.
i love lowe and edmunds. listen to them all the time.
admin, by chance you a graham parker fan? he is my all-time #1 fav; a grave injustice and an indictment of the american rock audience that he never made it huge. there is a connection between parker and edmunds, the so-called ‘pub rock’ thing.
best show ever–about six, seven years ago, asbury park convention hall, edmunds; parker; southside. man that was fun.
