Before there was punk rock, there was pub rock. The same raw energy, but twice the fun.

Top of the pile was Dr. Feelgood. Sparks on bass and the Big Figure on drums, knocking out the rhythm like a turbo charged hammer drill.

Standing out the front in a cheap suit was Canvey island hard man Lee Brilleaux, couldn’t sing, couldn’t dance, couldn’t play the Harmonica, but you wouldn’t dare tell him, and then running all over the stage like a demented puppet on a bad hair day was Wilko Johnson, the bands wicked lead guitarist and main song writer.

“Stupidity” caught them live on home territory in Southend, and remarkably was a number one album for the Feelgoods.

Alternating between home grown classics like “Back in the Night” and “Roxette” with covers like “Riot in cell block number nine”, “Johnny B Goode” and my personal favorite “Walking the Dog”, this album is what Rock ‘n’ Roll is all about, close your eyes and you could be down the Coach and Horses in Islington or Tahitian Queen Happy Hour on Friday with Clive.

Buy it or else.
