The Glory That Was Pub Rock

Chas de Whalley, Sounds, 26 November 1977

"Before pub rock people used to think the ideal gig was somewhere like Guildford Civic where you could sit cross-legged and watch King Crimson pan across the stereo. But with the Ducks, the Eggs and the Brinsleys, instead of sitting there reverently impressed, you could get f-in' legless and have a good time!" - Jake Rivera.
