No sleep 'til canvey island...

Leading on from the last post I just got the Feelgood's first lp again, its been reissued with extra tracks. Theres a 2nd cd with stereo versions (the original '74 lp was mono) but
I prefer it in mono, anyway. As a kid I marvelled at Wilko's ability to play lead and rhythm guitar at the same time (and with his fist!). I remember seeing them supporting Hawkwind just before punk broke, I was about 12 or 13. Next thing the Ramones came over and the rest is history...
Little known fact, Wilko Johnsons real name is John Wilkinson.
