Bandy Legs –Ride Ride

Bandy Legs –Ride Ride/Don’t Play Games –WWA WWS011 (1974 UK)

Ride Ride is a fine sparkling Glam number with Elmer Goodbody inflections... Which makes sense as Bandy Legs was a Birmingham outfit with affiliations to the Idle Race and Move (guitarist Mick Hopkins was in the Lemon Tree and post Jeff Lynne Idle Race). The band actually changed its name and became hard rock band Quartz after signing to Jet Records. It must have been quite an about-turn for the band to go all Hairy Metal as another of their singles (Silver Screen Queen on Pye) is in pure Rubettes mode!

Hear a full version of Ride Ride.
