Default MusicBanter's Official Rockpile (Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe, et al) Thread


Rockpile


left to right: Billy, Nick, Terry & Dave

Since forever or at least since I joined here I've wanted to do a thread for one of my all time favorite bands, Rockpile.

The band's active years was from the mid seventies to early eighties. They went against the grain with what was out at the time. They were a back to the basics band more influenced by artist of early Rock and Roll with songs filled Chuck Berry riffs, and The Everly Brothers harmonies. This is in contrast with being made at the time where corporate held the reins with AOR and cheesy Top 40 tunes that ruled the airwaves. Prog Rock took the wrong turn at Albuquerque with longer and longer songs. Entered Disco, Punk which further fractured the music landscape. And there was Rockpile in the middle of it all, playing straight forward Rock and Roll.


Genre - "They Call It Rock"

Albums
Trax on Wax (Dave Edmunds)
Repeat When Necessary (Dave Edmunds)
Seconds of Pleasure (Rock Pile)
Labour of Lust (Nick Lowe)

Personel
Dave Edmunds - rhythm and lead guitar, vocals
Nick Lowe - bass, vocals, vocals
Billy Bremner - rhythm and lead guitar, vocals
Terry Williamas - Drums, Drums, Drums !!!

(So this is a small introduction. Hopefully I will continue with album reviews, member profiles, promo & live videos, and everything else related to them.)

Rockpile - Danish TV concert (1979)

Seconds of Pleasure is a great, great pop album. It's a shame they couldn't keep it together for more...

They wouldn't mind continuing at the time, but it was the lawyers that kept them from being a proper band altogether. In total they had four albums, but only had one album, Seconds of Pleasure, was released under the group's name Rockpile. The album they did after that was Labour Of Lust even though that was released under Nick Lowe, however it is still all four band members of Rockpile playing together. Before Seconds of Pleasure all four members appear on Tracks on Wax 4 and Repeat When Necessary but they were released as Dave Edmund. As a group they also made an appearence with Robert Plant for the Concert for Kampuchea.

^ I hope you'll be telling us about Love Sculpture too. What happened to them? I used to love this showcase of Dave Edmunds' playing:-
