No Sleep till Canvey Island - The Great Pub Rock Revolution

Recommended Posts

Excellent guide to the pub rock phenomenom of the 70s...dudes in flares knocking out country and rock and roll classics as a down-to-earth alternative to the pomp and ego of stadium prog-rock.This feel-good music somehow birthed the feel-bad music of punk rock along the way (tho' we all know it feels good to feel bad... :))Energetic and fun primer to a mini-revolution, written by someone who was there, man! (Will Birch, Virgin, 2003)

Only just caught up with this thread... the mention of Chiswick Records forces me to give a quick namecheck to the vastly underrated (IMHO) Radio Stars. "Dirty Pictures," "No Russians In Russia," "Nervous Wreck," "From a Rabbit," ... ah, happy days!
