    This band need no introduction, a pub band from Essex, the band were originally formed under the name 'Buckshee' in 1973. They rehearsed in drummer Steve Nicol's garage in Rochford, Essex. Bassist Rob Steel was known by his nickname, 'The Hustler'. They changed their name to Eddie and the Hot Rods after Dave Higgs joined. He was more experienced, and it was his input at this early stage that helped them to gel and get gigs, eventually, in 1975, hitting the London pub rock circuit.

    They are still touring and do a really good version of "Belgian Tom's Hat Trick", I saw them do it live and thought that is heavy and wild. You would do well to check these out as they are a hard working band and always do a grand show.

    I loved the Lurkers when I saw them support the Buzzcocks, " Go ahead punk make my day, that's what Clint Eastwood used to say", classic. Eddie And The Hot Rods can come and play in my yard anyday.

    I saw Eddie and the Hot Rods quite a few times as they were always on the club circuit. They appeared on TV at the same time with Andy Mackay on saxophone. I remember the lead singer scurrying through Mackay's legs during a solo spot. Their best song in my view was as Do Anything You Wanna Do released as The Rods. It is quite true they were lumped in with punk rock, but they were more like No Dice, Dr Feelgood, Pirates, etc.

    Saw them on the 19th December supporting Quo! Missed the start but they were awesome. Should have been billed above Bonnie Tyler.
