Description: The story of Dr Feelgood, four men in cheap suits who crashed out of Canvey Island in the early ’70s, sandpapered the face of rock’n’roll, leaving all that came before a burnt-out ruin – four estuarine John-the-Baptists to Johnny Rotten’s anti-Christ. Taking London by storm, they sped through Europe and conquered the UK with No 1 chart success, before imploding just as punk was born and America beckoned with open arms. Contributions from members of The Clash, Blondie and The Sex Pistols join Dr Feelgood with collaborators Jools Holland and Alison Moyet to tell the story of Canvey, ’70s England and the greatest local band in the world.

    Fantastic addition! Thanks RL (again).

    • Mr.G. says:

      Lee to Wilko: “would you like to join the band?”, “yeah, I have nothing better to do”. …”toughest of mid-’70s pub-rock bands /precursor to punk/new wave, for a spell a major draw in the UK, rags to riches and back to rags…” fronted by former schoolteacher Wilko Johnson (1947-2022) ” and Lee Brilleaux (1952-1994). man, I have to reassess the meaning of life!

      • Nathan says:

        i can’t imagine Wilko as a schoolteacher!

        • Mr.G. says:

          Check out Jean Vigo’s “Zero de Conduite” (1933) described as “a veritable surreal manifesto where unlike its loose remake If … (1968)) even the stuffiest teachers are secretly wild at heart”. Also available in RL.
