Night of Treason - The Ballad of the Teddy Boy from Ladbroke Grove
Night Of Treason began life as a covers band but they soon began penning their own material. The album that today's song is taken from is called Gentleman And Hooligans, it came out around 7 years after they got together and benefits from them having had time to mature and hone their sound. They were pleased enough with the record to describe it as "the best English punk album since the 70's."
The line up features Pinky Wallace (who's side project FingerPluckinPinky recently supported John Otway) on vocals, Bill Gaynor - guitar, Pat Gilbert - guitar, Steve Kirk - drums and Lewie Lewis - bass.
Influenced by the likes of The Clash, The Alarm and Billy Bragg, they're a band that deserve a wider audience, please lend them your ears. This is The Ballad Of The Teddy Boy From Ladbroke Grove.....
