Rockpile

Rockpile. The greatest band you’ve never heard? This might be true.  Rockpile was an amazing British rock and roll band that performed in the 1970’s and into the early 1980’s. Their line-up was: Nick Lowe on bass, Dave Edmunds on guitar, Billy Bremner on guitar  and ‘Smashing’ Terry Williams played the drums. Lowe, Edmunds and Bremner all sang. They looked sharp, played loud and had killer songs. Check them out as they rip it up on “Crawling From The Wreckage,” a Graham Parker composition.

Rockpile made four albums, “Tracks On Wax 4” and “Repeat When Necessary” were issued as Dave Edmunds solo records, “Labour Of Lust” was released as Nick Lowe solo record and “Seconds Of Pleasure,” which was released as a Rockpile record. All four records are fantastic. Look them up, you won’t regret it.
