STRAIGHT EIGHT - Shuffle'N'Cut 1980

Here's now a great album by this awesome band from London and their music is quite brilliant. On this release are twelve powerpop gems which kicks the blues out of every depressive mind. Info from their MySpace site says: "Formed in early 1976, the band after gigging the UK pub rock circuit soon went on to being discovered and signed by Pete Townshend of WHO fame. He released the first album 'No Noise From Here' on his EEL PIE record label. Subsequently the band got picked up by Transatlantic Records (UK) and RCA in the States. Releasing 'Shuffle'N'Cut and then their 3rd album 'Straight To The Heart' in 1982. Unfortunately just as the band were due to begin a World Tour supporting The Who, drummer Keith Moon died and the rest is history. Line-up was Rick Cassman, Boot Kingsman, Steve Cherry and Rod Berriedale-Johnson. After a massive departure from the UK music scene, the band are busy arranging a best of compliation CD. Lead vocalist and main songwriter Rick Cassman has also been busy playing and producing in The Deputies and has also been involved with Twickenham's Club Acoustica. The Band recently got back together for a few numbers at Club Acoustica and enjoyed it so much they are planning an official reunion gig sometime in 2010 to celebrate their 30th aniversary!!" Great Band, Great Stuff, Great Record!!
