The music which influenced the JAMC is fairly obvious and the use of guitar feedback on this track exceptional. The song was released as a single in February 1985 and subsequently formed part of the Psychocandy album. The single reached number 47 in the charts - so my purchase of a 12” copy did not help to make much of an effect.
I tell you the truth but you don’t believe me.
Back in the early 70’s Alice Cooper was the first band to heavily influence me - the music, the lyrics and the theatricality.
These two tracks are from the Love It To Death album - released in the UK in June 1971 and reaching number 28 in the album chart.
I was eagerly purchasing each new album as it was released as well as the band’s back catalogue - well, I was until the band split in 1974 and Alice went solo. I saw Alice live on stage during his Special Forces tour at the Brighton Centre on 11 February 1982. A great night.
I’m Eighteen, I just don’t know what I want . . . Don’t touch me . . .
A singer-songwriter who was very well respected within the music industry.
An epic track taken from Led Zep’s Physical Graffiti album (released in February 1975) and performed at almost every concert since.
Although never released as a single, it reached number 80 in 2007 following the UK Singles Chart incorporating legal downloads.
Let me take you there
On the UK Singles Chart, the song reached number 43 in 1979/80 and number 21 in 1982
The Motors, a pub rock band that emerged from the ashes of Ducks Deluxe in 1977.
This was their first single - I still have my copy - and was released in September 1977. It reached number 42 in the UK Singles Chart.
I saw the band live when they supported Wishbone Ash at the Gaumont Theatre, Southampton in the autumn of 1977.
