The band’s Johnny Kidd & The Pirates influenced originals («Keep It Out of Sight») appear alongside covers material like «Bonie Maronie» and «Tequila». The album was a primary influence on The Strypes, covering «I’m A Hog For You Baby» on their 2013 debut album Snapshot. Paul Weller and Bob Geldof have also acknowledged the influence of the album, as have Blondie, The Ramones and Richard Hell, who were introduced to the album by Blondie’s drummer, Clem Burke. In 1976, prior to being signed, The Jam demoed a cover of «Cheque Book». Paul Weller’s copy of the album is also glimpsed on the sleeve of The Style Council’s 1985 LP, Our Favourite Shop.

Dr Feelgood

Biography

Dr. Feelgood are an English pub rock band formed in 1971. Hailing from Canvey Island, Essex, the group are best known for early singles such as "She Does It Right", "Roxette", "Back in the Night" and "Milk and Alcohol". The group's original distinctively British R&B sound was centred on Wilko Johnson's choppy guitar style. Along with Johnson, the original band line-up included singer Lee Brilleaux and the rhythm section of John B. Sparks, known as "Sparko", on bass guitar and John Martin, known as "The Big Figure", on drums. Although their most commercially productive years were the early to mid-1970s, and in spite of Brilleaux's death in 1994 of lymphoma, a version of the band (featuring none of the original members) continues to tour and record to this day.
