The Count Bishops - 1977

A great record from the years where punk rock was understood as pure and energic rock'n'roll. review: Kicking off with a great cover of The Kinks' "I Need You," this solid, unpretentious debut album should belong in the home of every fan of English R&B from The Yardbirds to The Pretty Things to Dr. Feelgood. Guitarists Johnny Guitar and Zenon de Fleur keep it tight and simple, never wasting a note, and vocalist Dave Tice is so macho, it's enough to make you laugh. The originals are OK, if somewhat predictable blues-based rave-ups, but the energy and good cheer more than make up for the album's derivative nature. Not a deep album by any stretch of the imagination, just good dirty fun. - John Dougan
