Lindisfarne: You Can't Carry On Being a Geordie Band Forever

Dave Laing, Let It Rock, October 1972

FINCHLEY CENTRAL, you'll recall, was a hit record for the New Vaudeville Band (I think it was the follow-up to the equally appalling 'Winchester Cathedral').It's also the tube stop nearest to the North London home of bass player, violinist and songwriter Rod Clements, who I went to talk to a couple of weeks after Lindisfarne had finished recording their latest album.

Total word count of piece: 2960
