May he do anything he wants to do in heaven.
They were brilliant live, Pub Rock legends. Do Anything and Get Outta Denver were live favourites.
Saw them three times and liked them along with Dr Feelgood and not forgetting The Pirates.
Do Anything is one of those singles that just oozes enthusiasm and energy , timeless sort of power pop/pre punk.
Last saw them about five years ago in Tavistock. There were 10 people in the audience so we all moved into the bar and they performed in there. It was a right laugh and a high old time was had.
Sorry to hear that. I used to love them.
Some songs just take you straight back to good places; this is one (for me).
Saw them once & had 'Life on the Line' RIP.
Really sorry to hear this. They were my era !!!
Such a shame that I never got to have seen them live though
Can't find a Guardian obit yet, but this piece is worth a read, and it has links to other interesting-looking stuff too ...
Yeah same here. One of my biggest regrets was not getting to see these live (also The Ruts)
Adam Sweeting's utterly excellent obituary of Barrie Masters here -- so informative and interesting!!!
And "Eddie and the Hot Rods"??
That's a great article and the comments are brilliant too.
Quit This Town...I'd forgot about that one, what a tune.
I saw them in Harlow in 1976.
As I've mentioned earlier I never got to see them live which is a great disappointment. They didn't seem to do many gigs in the Midlands tbh, not that I recall anyway.
