    Sprocket. I am just waiting for the next tomato..

    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.

    RIP Barrie. :(

    Some songs just take you straight back to good places; this is one (for me).

    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)

    RIP Barrie

    That's a great article and the comments are brilliant too.

    Quit This Town...I'd forgot about that one, what a tune.

    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.
