Give It Some Stick, Mick!

Album: Mustn't Grumble (1982)


  • With or without the exclamation mark, this semi-instrumental was released as the B Side of "Ain't No Pleasing You." Co-written by Messrs Hodges & Peacock, in this case possibly with a little help from Michael Burt. If it is revealed that Mr. Burt (Mick) was their drummer, no further explanation is needed.

    This track also contains some tasty piano in the style of Jerry Lee Lewis, one of their early influences, Hodges having played with Lewis in the 1960s. >>
