Title - 'Live At The Rainbow 1977' (Cherry Red)
Artist - Eddie And The Hot Rods

A friend of mine was actually at this show! He has since told me that, interstingly enughh, the support band were Ultravox [the Jon Foxx incarnation prior to Midge Ure] and that they were really good. He said they played nearly all of their eponymous debut album and that it set the crowd up perfectly for Eddie and the boys to follow!

But anyway, and that all said Eddie And The Hot Rods needed a good year and by jove, come 1977 they got it! The punk band from Essex, England had been playing the live circuit for years, but word of mouth was starting to get around.

Indeed, Eddie And The Hot Rods were an early UK punk group, high energy, but essentially a revved up mid-sixties sound. They were not a revival group, nor were they a full blown "punk" group ala The Damned or The Ramones.

But what's that I hear you ask? You don't remember anything the band ever did? Sure you do - remember their biggest hit single, ‘Do Anything You Wanna Do’ which reached #9 in the UK chart in August? Or perhaps you saw them open up for either the Talking Heads or The Ramones. It was also the year they released their massively accepted Life On The Line album.

Anyway, this live show from their London’s Rainbow Theatre gig in 1977 features another UK hit single 'Teenage Depression,' further singles such as 'Writing On The Wall' and 'Wooly Bully,' and covers of classic songs such as '96 Tears' (originally recorded by Question Mark & the Mysterians), 'The Kids Are Alright' (originally recorded by The Who) and 'Gloria' (originally recorded by Them). And so here today we have a 2 disc release that captures that show in all its glory – both on CD and DVD. And wow, what a noisy show it was, both from the sound coming from the stage and that coming out of the audiences mouths!

1. GET ACROSS TO YOU; 2. 96 TEARS; 3. KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON; 4. ALL I NEED IS MONEY; 5. SHOW ME; 6. WOOLY BULLY; 7. HORSEPLAY; 8. WHY CAN’T IT BE; 9. THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT; 10. TEENAGE DEPRESSION; 11.
