Gidians League - Hey! Did You Know You’ve Got Your Face On Upside Down

Gidians League -Hey! Did you Know You’ve Got Your Face On Upside Down/You’ve Got a Mind of Your Own –Parlophone R 5933 (1972 UK)

Let’s stick then with Robin Goodfellow (see review below) for this bouncy Bubblegum ditty he wrote and produced prior to signing to Pye and being relegated to Dawn.
OK, it is a lightweight piece of fluff but a most enjoyable one thanks to its catchy chorus. It harks back to the pure Bubblegum sound of ’68 but adds a quintessential Englishness to the proceedings. What a great title anyhow...

Robin Goodfellow -You Know Me Now

Robin Goodfellow -You Know Me Now/I'm Suddenly Alive -Dawn DNS 1057 (1974 UK)

Here’s a great classic unheralded UK 70s pop single with a nod to Glam. It reminds as much of Hetherington as it does Marc Bolan, that guitar is pure T. Rex in any case. You Know Me Now is damn catchy tune with a nice and bouncy production and the B side is also cool too. Robin had another earlier single on Pye (Why Am I Waiting) which is nearly as good while leaning more torwards David Bowie. I haven’t found much relevant information on the Net, so if anyone want to fill in the bits. You're  more than welcome...

Sugar –Hot Damn

Sugar –Hot Damn/Let It Roll –Lady Records UR-898 (1976 US)

Driven by a gleaming cowbell, Hot Damn is a thumping piece of Riff Rock leaning towards Bonehead Boogie with Glam overtones provided by the camp vocals. These guys were not Glitter clad cross-dressers, but the singer comes across like a truck driver in stilettos with his amusing delivery. The lyrics are a real hoot -Good ol’ boy ethics on how Atlanta boys only want to rock while dissing non-Southerners and wussy English accents. Hot Damn is a joyfully dumb yet juicy Georgia peach.

US –He’s Coming Back/You’ll Never Know

US –He’s Coming Back/You’ll Never Know –Straita Head Records (1975 US)

This looks to be a San Diego band who enlisted Johnny Almond (Ex Zoot Money/John Mayall and half of Mark –Almond) as a guest on the A side of this single. Not sure why 20 seconds of Sax warrants such star billing…Anyhow -He’s Coming Back has a heavy early 70s Who influence, but is even closer to Side Three/Overnight Sensation Raspberries or Artful Dodger stuff. Enjoy the stunning lead guitar over the ending…Very tasteful. You’ll Never Know is Almond-free and it’s a blistering high energy rocker again with a bit of Raspberries thrown in with some top lead guitar. Straita Head was a production company and a well-known Hair Metal club in the San Diego are in the 80s, but you can safely date this single to the mid-70s as Johnny Almond signed to ABC in 1975. A killer double-sider.
