Pub Rock Crosses The Pond
Some pub rock from Austin Texas for you today from 2005 as Elizabeth McQueen and the Firebrands play tributes to their pub rock favourites on Happy Doing What We're Doing
This record has featured previously on CCM when covers of records by Graham Parker & the Rumour and Dr Feelgood got an airing.
This turn round it is the turn of Rockpile with the Nick Lowe penned When I Write the Book and Squeeze with Annie, Get Your Gun.
I didn't have Squeeze down as a pub rock act but Elizabeth assures me that they started out on that scene although she acknowledges that they are more poppy than some of their rootier brothers
