Kilburn And The High-Roads ‎– "Handsome" (Dawn ‎– DNLS 3065) 1975


Kilburn and the High-Roads were one of thee Outsider groups. Boasting at least two disabled members among various other misfits,including Keith Lucas,aka Nick cash of 999. A motley crew whose total lack of image became their image.
They played a kind of understated, cabaret-stained version of Pub rock. Ian Dury had yet to find his vocal confidence,or lyrical gymnastics, but a healthy dose of intelligent humour pervades all of this fine album. About as far away from Led Zeppelin as one could get in 1975.....so it must be good?

Tracklist:

The Roadette Song
Pam's Mood
Crippled With Nerves
Broken Skin
Upminster Kid
Patience(So What?)
Father
Thank You Mum
Rough Kids
The Badger & The Rabbit
