Terry Edwards and the Scapegoats, The Knockouts on Thu 28th April 2005
Through his work with such musical heavyweights as Billy Bragg, Madness, Lydia Lunch, Nick Cave and Gallon Drunk (to name but a few), Terry Edwards has become something of a legend. He is perhaps less well known for his role as front man of The Scapegoats, who put punk, jazz, surf, and all manner of styles through a musical blender and serve up something quite unique. Listen out for covers of your favourites from Napalm Death to Miles Davis to a coruscating version of ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’.
The Knockouts have honed their lackadaisical approach to surfy/punkie instrumental performance since rising like sick men from the ashes of former Lutonian indie achievers, Thrilled Skinny. The Knockouts’ surprising knack of saddling their creativity excess within the confines of their limited technique makes for a memorable and at times, uncomfortable experience.
Tonight’s show also sees the launch of volume 17 of Clod Magazine, which since its first issue in 1987 has explored such diverse topics as skirting boards, soya mice and fashion.
