The Good, The Bad & . . . the not so photogenic – The Rockingbirds ride back in to town

The Rockingbirds Rough Trade instoreLast Saturday saw The Rockingbirds celebrate the re release of their classic – eponymous – album, with a performance in the basement of the Rough Trade record store in Talbot Road, West London.  The room was packed with ‘old’ faces who were treated to to a bunch of tunes from said album plus the debut live performance of new song ‘Man in the Moon’ (available on 7″ from our e bay shop)

The 2008 reunion prompted the re-mastering of this great, lost record, but more live dates and even fresh recording sessions are in the works as The Rockingbirds try their method on a new generation. To echo a line from ‘Gradually Learning’, being late is better than never.
