    Fab line by Lee Brilleaux: ‘He was like a bear more than a wolf’

  3. TheQSpark1 says:

    I saw these guys back in 85 at Queen Margaret College In Edinburgh and shared a Martell Brandy with them!!! still one the best gigs iv’e ever seen… Absolute Class Act!!! Thanks for the memory Guys!!!

  4. Exilemainstreet says:

    These guys are so much like what the Yardbirds would have been like if they’d carried on. This band was a time capsule.

    Extracts from their “Welcome Back” concert at Southends magnificent Kursaal are on here …go for it … I’m a Hog for them Baby!!!

  6. pit2ryan3 says:

    I guess you mean Wilko Johnson, the original guitarist …

  7. EustonFilms says:

    Mind blowing stuff. Thanks so much for this. I’m sure Lee Brilleux was once rumoured to be a teacher at King John School in Thundersley. Anyone know if this is true?

    Black man rythm & black man beat.if there’s a PROBLEM GO & LISTEN TO OPERA!

  9. David Fawcett says:

    So do I. I thought this show was lost down the memory hole. Many thanks for putting these highlights on Youtube. Do you have the whole programme, unedited, uploaded for play?

  10. burgesmate says:

    Black man rhythm with a white boy beat – you can’t buy the charisma that Lee had. The man could dress in a shell suit and still look authentic.

  11. Jarski J. says:

    Excellent choice you made 🙂

  12. Bluesgerd47 says:

    : I agree. Seen them about thirty times; unforgettable.

  13. krad91y says:

    I remember this, it’s great you’ve uploaded it.. Out of all 3 bands – Nine Below Zero the young upstarts, Dr. Feelgood the seasoned professionals and The Blues Band the veterans, Dr Feelgood absolutely blew the other two out of the studio. Lee Brilleaux was a dynamic frontman, one of the very best.
    If you miss his voice put Ian Fawkes in the search box. You’ll find a band called Route 66, close your eyes and Lee is nearly there. We’re playing before them at Colne Blues Festival this year!
