April -Rollin' It Over


April –Rollin’ It Over/ Come On Down – PYE 7N 45462 (1975 UK)

Crap name for a band, but this Tony Hatch produced single is a nifty example of up-tempo Glam Pop. Rollin’ It Over is like a Bay City Rollers tune with loud power chords, a driving Glitter beat and a sing-along chorus.. Add a bit of Bilbo Baggins with a little Bo’ Flyers thrown in and you should get the idea. Not a stupendous find, but pleasing all the same. The B side is also good and very much in the same mould.
