Brinsley Schwarz on German TV (March 6, 1975)

Very rare clips from an otherwise lost Rockpalast appearance by the kings of Pub Rock. These clips only survived because they were rerun on a morning TV show a few days later. The hostess and panelists are clearly having the time of their lives.

The highlights of this brief set are the Brinsleys' classic riff on Sweetheart-era Byrds, "Country Girl", and an early performance of a recent composition by bassist Nick Lowe, a little ditty called "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, & Understanding".

"Country Girl"
"Love Is Gone"
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, & Understanding"
"Range War"
"Run Rudolph Run" (why is Chuck Berry's Christmas classic on a show from March?)

A pic from a wild appearance on Dutch TV. Unfortunately the classic if chaotic clip this comes from was removed from YouTube

I like Nick Lowe. My only criticism is a slight one, simply that I tend to like a lot of the early seventies country influenced rock bands a bit more than Brinsley Schwartz and a ton of laid back power pop more than his solo stuff and Rockpile.

He kind of became a hugely trendy icon for a lot of the newer powerpop bands of 2005-2009 that I always thought was slightly overblown.

"jesus of cool" is a fantastic album. dont really care that much for rockpile, or the his other solo stuff.

I Love My Label

he produced the first few elvis costello records, and the Damned debut. all great stuff. all around badass.

The Dave Edmunds albums Lowe worked on are great. But I admit, the one studio album actually credited to Rockpile is kind of disappointing.

Lowe also produced the first Graham Parker album, one of the greatest debuts ever

A fact unknown to many people.

Saw Lowe perform acoustically on tv recently (forget on what program). Pretty nice catalog.

I posted some in the first week of the Music Board I think.

Never ever get tired of Cruel To Be Kind.

I'll post Girls Talk and Hold On for the hell of it.

I've always like the "Little Village" record. That's a group he had with John Hiatt, Ry Cooder, and JIm Keltner.

The whole record has a really unique sound. A bit dated now but still really cool.

Good call I bought that in L.A. when I lived there. Played it a lot.

Can't go wrong with that.

BTW, if a thread discussing Brinsley Scharz, Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds and Ian Gomm goes into multiple pages, I'll have a whole new respect for the music board.
