State Express were one of the "gunslinger" gangs of Sixties music. If some big name moved in, fixin' to boss a new territory, it was guys like these they hired to back their play. If they were good and fast enough, they were never out of work, and always got the job done even if the new boss wasn't all he made himself out to be. State Express worked almost full-time backing touring American soul artists - or people pretending to be those same American soul artists - picking up a new star and learning a new set of arrangements every fortnight, and launching into another gruelling tour of the country.
The following night saw their first show of the tour, in Ilfracombe. As Jim says: "It was a fantastic learning curve. Soon afterwards he got a guitar, but when he broke two strings he decided to learn bass "because I thought it would be easier - little did I know. Soon after leaving this outfit he went to see them playing in Old Hill, and was invited onstage to do a song.
In the audience was a drummer from Walsall called Johnny West. I said yes, and he said they were rehearsing the next day in Smethwick with Sam and Dave and did I think I could do it?
I said: 'I certainly can. Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) hadn't got any gear either, so I had to get my dad to sign some HP forms, which he did, God bless him, and I set off for the first gig in Ilfracombe.
The basic four-piece of Johnny, Jim, Hammond organist Barry Fletcher and guitarist John Crutchley, with Jim and Barry supplying backing vocals, and augmented by two sax players if required, would then have a busy Sunday afternoon's rehearsal, before setting off for their first gig, often that same night. Highlights for Jim include the high-tension, high-energy act of Sam and Dave, and the pleasure of singing Charlie Foxx's part in Mockin' Bird when Inez toured solo on Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) visits.
Of the stars, Jim says: "They knew how to get what they wanted from us as musicians, and they were never horrible about it. It was Cryin Shame - Stray Cats - Gonna Ball great learning curve, playing by the seat of your pants, and it sorts you out.
If you don't know it you crumble, but if you know your basics you Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) do it, and you refine it as you go along; you think about it in the back of the van, how about if I do it this way? It was scary, but a good scary, because it made you do the job and go into the music a lot deeper. I'd be playing along just enjoying listening to him.
Sometimes, however, audiences realised. As soon as we'd finished it was into the van and off. In the rare weeks that there was no-one to back, the group would tour the same venues with their own act, then one day they were offered a date tour of Italy - and stayed there for nearly three years, as Washington Express, with singer Johnny Higgs and guitarist Jock Evans joining the line-up. They released a single, Sirens, recorded in Milan and written by Jim as was the B side Frustrationsbut when their Hammond organ was impounded in Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) row between promoters, they had to become part-timers for a spell.
It was nevertheless a splendid time says Jim, and a great education. During much of Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) time, the band was only successful in the UK, where they racked up a string of Top Ten singles that ran into the '90s. In America, the group was ignored after they abandoned psychedelia for heavy boogie rock in the early '70s.
Following that single, the band suffered a lean period for the next few years, before deciding to refashion themselves as a hard-rock boogie band in with their Ma Kelly's Greasy Spoon album. Over the next 25 years, the Quo have basically recycled the same simple boogie on each successive album and single, yet their popularity has never waned in Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc).
If anything, their very predictability has ensured the group Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) large following. The origins of Status Quo lie in a London-based beat group Wildside - Various - Warner Music United Kingdom New Releases the Spectres.
Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster were the core members of the Spectres from their inception; within a few years, the band had added John Coughlan and Roy Lynes. The Spectres released three unsuccessful Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) before changing their style to psychedelia and adopting the name 'Traffic Jam' and releasing the unsuccessful single, "Almost But Not Quite There. When Harrison joined the band in Augustthe group again changed their name, this time to Status Quo.
At first, Status Quo backed British solo artists, including Tommy Quickly, while Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) on their own material. Over in America, the single barely registered, squeaking to number 70; it was the ReOrder - Heartfelt time the group would ever chart in the US. For the next year, Status Quo tried to replicate the success of their first two singles with similar psychedelic material, but they had little luck.
Finally, they revamped their sound -- and jettisoned organist Lynes -- in the summer ofdebuting their new heavy, bluesy boogie rock with the single Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) the Dustpipe. Status Quo began playing concerts regularly across England, slowly building up a strong following in England. Following well-received sets at 's Reading and Great Western festivals, the band became a hot property.
The group signed with Vertigo Records and their first single for the label, "Paper Plane," cracked the Top Ten in earlywhile their first album for Vertigo, Piledriver reached number five. Later that year, Hello entered the charts at number one, while its accompanying single "Caroline" reached number five. Also inkeyboardist Andy Bown, formerly of the Herd and Judas Jump, became the band's unofficial keyboardist. Since they were experiencing a great deal of success, they didn't change their sound at all, they just kept churning out the same heavy boogie.
America basically ignored Status Quo, yet their eponymous album managed to chart at in Nevertheless, they were an English phenomenon, and England continued to support them even when pop music was undergoing drastic changes in the late '70s.
Following the release of 's Just Supposin', drummer John Coughlan left the band in to form his own group, Diesel. Former Original Mirrors drummer Pete Kircher replaced him; his first appearance with the group was 's Never to Late. Druing the early '80s, tensions escalated between bassist Lancaster and guitarists Rossi and Parfitt, who were the group's main songwriters. Lancaster left the band after performing with them for a Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) time at Live Aid.
He subsequently took Rossi and Parfitt to court to prevent them from using the name "Status Quo. Once the lawsuit was settled, Rossi and Parfitt assembled a new band, hiring bassist John Edwards, drummer Jeff Rich, and keyboardist Andy Bown, who officially became a member of the group. The new line-up continued Status Quo's remarkable success, as they racked up a number of new Top Ten singles and hit albums, as well as consistently selling out concerts across England and Europe.
Inthe group had its second number one hit of its career, with the football anthem "Come on You Reds"; the single was recorded with the football champions, Manchester United. By the mid-'90s, Status Quo had scored 50 British hit singles, which was a greater number than any other band in rock roll's history.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine. Info from: All Music Guide. Stealers Wheel. The turbulent, acrimonious and comparatively brief career of Stealers Wheel enabled the two main members Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan to produce some memorable and inventive, relaxed pop music. During the early 70s, Rafferty b. Paul Pilnick guitarTony Williams bass and Breath - Various - Lord Of The Mics V Coombes drums; ex- Juicy Lucy bailed out Rafferty and Egan; the result was a surprising success, achieved by the sheer quality of their songs and the blend of the two leaders' voices.
While the song was high on the charts Rafferty departed and was replaced by former Spooky Tooth lead guitarist Luther Grosvenor aka Ariel Bender. Rafferty had returned by the time the second album was due to be recorded, but then all the remaining members left the band, leaving Rafferty and Egan holding the baby.
Various session players completed Ferguslie Park, astonishingly another superb, melodic and cohesive album. The album was a failure commercially and the two leaders set about completing their contractual obligations and recording their final work Right Or Wrong. Even with similarly strong material, notably the evocative "Benidictus" and the arresting "Found My Way To You", the album failed.
Rafferty and Egan, disillusioned, buried the name forever. Management problems plagued their career and lyrics of these troubled times continued to appear on both Egan and Rafferty's subsequent Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) work. Family Tree.

Travelin Blues - Loggins And Messina - Full Sail the end of the British blues boom, only a few hardcore fans took interest on the finest lyrical blues-rock statement of the century.
Not selling as many records as they'd hoped to, Steamhammer nevertheless became Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) top European open-air attraction, mainly due to their brilliant live performance.
For over two hours each night they would indulge in wide excursions in instrumental improvisations, embodied by the impressive guitar riffage of Martin Pugh and the sensitive harmonica of Kieran White. In the summer ofQuittenton left the band, followed by drummer Michael Rushton. They were replaced by Steve Jollife saxaphone, flute and Mick Bradley.
Jollife's feel for precise arrangements and jazz influences especially inspired the recording of Steamhammer's second, "Mk II", album. Overstepping the boundaries of traditional blues forms, they unleashed their own musical creativity and imagination without resorting to any technical trickery.
These highly professional and creative musicians performed many live shows at various festivals in Scandinavia, West Germany and the Netherlands. On the continent, it turned out, they had become more popular than in England. In Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) summer ofSteamhammer recorded their "definitive album" rock sessioncalled "Mountains", as a quartet. White, Pugh, Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) and Bradley were really working as a team and offering electrified white urban blues of highest quality.
It was only with the release of this album that Steamhammer began to be noticed by the rock world. After the Altamont and Fehmarn fiascos, the era of open-air events of such calibre was ended at least for quite a while.
In the late summer of that same year, Steamhammer toured for the last time in Germany and the Benelux. The following autumn, the line-up changed again. By that time, Steamhammer had ceased to exist.

In the 80s he embraced Islam and changed his name to Yusef Islam. He has worked tirelessly for charities and for children. He has recorded under his new name — his release "Indian Ocean" tells the story of Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) tsunami disaster of December — but he was refused entry to the USA Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) with claims he had some links to terrorism!
He adopted the name 'Cat' after a girl remarked on how his eyes resembled those of a cat. Famous for his publicity 'pranks' he once impersonated Alice Cooper in full make-up in Clouds Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) above the Apollo in Glasgow the night they played there in November causing quite a commotion when fans thought they'd caught a glimpse of Alice.
Later he repeated the stunt when he ran on stage at Cumnock Town Hall with an already-dead and plucked chicken which he butchered with a large knife! Unfortunately the Police failed to see the funny side and he spent a night in the cells for possession of the blade!
Sadly he suffers from Multiple Sclerosis but refuses to buckle under. They'd served their time playing the "beer and burger" club circuit, yet their age range was still only 16 to Pete Waterman wrote and produced their solitary top thirty hit.

Alwyn W Turner came up with some answers! I'm interested because a Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) weren't a bad little band, but mostly b they genuinely had reason to belive that they were going to be huge stars Memories from Mark Haley "I had quite a connection with the band.
Many years ago I was invited down to Magnet records by Pete Waterman. He had a song called 'Alright baby'. The audition went well and Pete said he would organise some studio time.
I never did get the phone call. I was only 13 and I think he thought they would need someone a bit more experienced. When the song made it into the charts, I naturally followed it's progress, while feeling a bit miffed that it wasn't me. I'm aware that the record was bumped out of the chart briefly because of suspected 'buying in'. The band's career swiftly nose-dived when they ended up in Sunday tabloid scandal. We never really looked like getting anywhere, didn't fit in with the new wave stuff happening at that time, and I decided to leave.
My replacement turned out to be Kev Harris! I stayed friends with the band and got to know Kev very well. He has lived in London now for many years and done consistently well as a recording engineer. Kev also played bass on a 'nostalgia' tour I was the MD for. Hope this was of some interest". Davey Stewart. Jermaine Stewart. Stiff Little Fingers. Henry had by this time discovered punk, and introduced the rest of the band to it.
They decided that Highway Star wasn't a punky enough name, and after a brief flirtation with the name The Fast, decided to call themselves Stiff Little Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc), Jake taking the name Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) the Vibrators track.
In November of '77, Gordon Ogilvie, a local journalist, caught their live show and was impressed. He encouraged Small Town Girl - Brewer And Shipley - Down In L.A. (Reel-To-Reel, Album) to write their own songs about what they knew best--life in Belfast. Jake came back twelve days later with "Suspect Device" and "Wasted Life". These were the first of what became SLF's signature style: lyrics that meld the personal and political, music that combines the energy of punk with infectious hooks, and delivery that rings of honesty and commitment.
With Ogilvie's help, they released those two songs on their own Rigid Digits label, with an initial pressing of only The interest generated resulted in a distribution deal through Rough Trade in England. A local fanzine named Alternative Ulster asked the band to write a song specially for a giveaway flexi-disc. Although the plans for the flexi fell through, "Alternative Ulster" became the first Alaya - InMe - The Pride released by Rough Trade in October of ' Jake once introduced it as "a song about having nothing to do.

In the spring they played on the Rock Against Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) tour.
By the summer ofSLF signed a deal with Chrysalis Records which included unusually broad artistic control by the band. They released the LP Nobody's Heroes in It combined the DIY ethic of the first album with more universal themes of alienation, anti-militarism, and anti-racism.
Their live shows Cannes - Various - 9½ Weeks - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to be special Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) of energy and power.
The Go For It LP in '81 revealed more sophisticated song writing and musicianship, Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) another step in the shift from punk to power pop. The Now Then album of '82 alienated many of SLF's punk followers with its pop sound, and despite some glowing critical reviews, never got the recognition it deserved. The band split in early ' But it is also unfortunately the best I think we will ever make.
So I have decided to call it a day. Instead of talking through our Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) we wound up having fist fights. But none were as satisfying, or as successful, as SLF. Said Ali, "It wasn't until we got back together again did we realize this was the only thing we were ever completely happy with. At this period everybody seemed to be getting back together again. The audience response to the reunion shows was overwhelming, with Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) crowds larger than any that SLF had played in their original incarnation.
The two shows at the Brixton Academy in '88 pulled in over 10, people over two nights. Fans from the U. Recordings from those Puppies On Acid - Dream Theater - Once In A Livetime were released as the See You Up There album and video, considered by many to be the best SLF live recordings ever.
The response to the shows across the world surprised and delighted the band, and their following continued to grow, with younger "new" fans alongside the old diehards. By '90 their thoughts had turned to reforming the Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) permanently and recording new material.
But Ali decided his commitments would keep him from recording Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) album or touring. He officially left about a week before they were scheduled to tour Japan. Jake phoned Bruce Foxton formerly of The Jamwho jumped Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) at the last minute, and has been a member ever since. Although overall the LP's material was not as strong as earlier albums, it still served to satisfy fans starved for new SLF songs, and the subsequent tour continued the tradition of powerful shows where the crowd reacts "to most of SLF's numbers in much the same way as kernels react to a plugged-in popcorn maker," as noted in the Los Angeles Unknown Artist - Pantomime Hits (Flexi-disc) in ' The album helped renew interest in SLF just as newer bands that sited them as a major influence, such as Bad Religion, Sugar, Rancid, and Therapy, were coming to prominence.

Stiff Little Fingers released the studio album Hope Street, in two different formats in Said Jake Burns, "'Last Train From The Wasteland' on Hope Street is the first optimistic song I have ever written about Belfast, while Hope Street the album is generally more optimistic than people have given us credit for in the past.
Much of the material was recorded at a special Hope Street Premier Party held in London, at which the band played over two hours of new songs, rarities, plus all the favourites. Response from the fans has been tremendous. Though focused on their new material, they always play the old favourites at gigs. Jake said, "You have to strike a balance. The difficulty with a band like ourselves is to try not make it sound like a cabaret band.
Obviously, it'd be very easy to go, 'Hey, here's another old one you may remember. I suppose it's the same as any band that's been around for any length of time And yes, there are nights that we don't particularly want to play "Alternative Ulster" or "Suspect Device" because we've heard them 'til they're coming out our ears. But there's always the possibility that somebody out there has never seen the band before, never heard them. It is a poppy affair with somewhat la-de-da vocals but Dorris' b-side showed songwriting promise.
It didn't set the charts on fire and Frankie Miller soon replaced Mr. The band changed their name to 'Howl' and hit the university gig scene in England where heavier music that 'ye cannae dance tae' was more acceptable.
