Letter from Britain: New Bands Hit The Pubs (And The Charts)

Jonh Ingham, Creem, May 1975

"IT'S 1975, OKAY, and all across London town, hey hey," or something like that. It's not so much a case of no fun as a search for a new band that can do more than sustain one's interest and excitement beyond a couple of encounters. Given that most of the new talent is working a pub circuit it's quite an easy proposition, and even fun, to search out new bands purely on the strength of their name secure in the knowledge that admission is free and one's primary purpose is getting drunk.
