Garrie and The Roosters: Win Or Lose (1984)



While this series was begun by long-time contributor Roberto, it is fellow blogger, Bristolboy who has generously provided today's rip. May we all be thankful to such giving people.



The Little Roosters (more HERE), who shared three members with Oi! founders, Cock Sparrer and one associate member with synth-poppers, Yaz [!], impressed a lot of people with their glam-rock/pup-rock/rock-rock style, including one Joe Strummer, who produced much of the band's discography and was supposedly paid in new teeth! The band's leader, Garrie Lammin, put out a semi-solo single as Garrie And The Roosters in 1984. On this release the drums are a bit weaker and there's a horn section on the A-side but it's still the same Stones-loving rock n' roll that Lammin has devoted his life to.


 


MRML readers, don't let Bristolboy, Roberto and me down on this extended series! Let us know what you think of Garrie and The Roosters in the COMMENTS section (where you'll find Win Or Lose ).

  3. Thank you from France for all this Lammin/Roosters stuff !
    Shake it Down is a great album even though it doesn't sound as punchy as the Little Roosters

    1. But he still kept it pretty punchy by mid-80's standards.
