Usually stripped down sound, four lads, that was about it … but good. Last minute’s finale is the best part here:

Part of the problem is getting decent youtube copies where the performance matched or exceeded the record:

No American bands here because I don’t think they did pub rock. If anyone wishes to correct this erroneous view, feel free.

    The Blockheads and the Rumour were two wonderful backing bands. Cliff had his Shadows – these two were great too.

    Graham Parker and the Rumour! Truly great band. Best songs – Hotel Chambermaid plus their cover of You Can’t Hurry Love.
