Dave Edmunds: New Wave, 1955

Dave Schulps, Musician, July 1981

"MUSICALLY, WE didn't find a niche for ourselves. It amounted to a couple of songs from a Nick Lowe album, a couple of songs from an Edmunds album. Perhaps if Billy Bremner had done all the singing it would have been better. That was the closest we could get to something that didn't sound like Dave or Nick. Perhaps if it had started out as a band instead of doing all that solo album stuff, it would have worked."

Total word count of piece: 2919
