Fabulous Poodles - 1979-05-26 - London BBC

Fabulous Poodles
1979-05-26, Paris Theatre, London
BBC Radio In Concert Broadcast
MP3 @ 320 Kbps
Good Sound Quality

Here's an all-too short, but very sweet BBC radio show from the Fabulous Poodles, a great, but very short-lived late '70's band. These guys had a great sound that was a combination of early Kinks and The Who, mixed with 50's kitsch and 70's new wave, and clever, witty lyrics. That's right, not only did they sound great, but they were funny, too. Just a great, original, and overlooked band. This way-too-short show highlights some of their best songs, but leaves out so many more. Still, great to have any live recordings of the band (still looking to find their other, longer radio broadcasted shows from 1979). So, check out the poodles, you'll be glad you did.

1.Suicide Bridge.
2.Chicago Boxcar (Boston Back).
5.Pinball Pinup.
6.Mirror Star.
8.Bike Blood.

Thanks so much for the live Fab Poos!! I have a cassette tape of the 2/13/79 My Father's Place show that I bought through the mail back about 1980 or so. Unfortunately, the guy who sold it to me made the copy on faulty equipment - the recording speeds up and slows down all the way through. I sent him several letters about it right after I received the tape, but he never responded and never sent me a corrected copy. For some reason, I held on to the tape all these years. Have you got equipment that will speed correct it?

In case you come back and read this, every copy of the My Fathers Place show I have ever found is like that. I think it was a problem with the original tape.
