I have recently discovered “64 Spoons”, an inspired version of jazz-rock and looning that were around int he late 1970s; so obscure that there is no track by them on YouTube (going to have to do something about that). I read they developed a fair local following but never broke (and no way they could at that time given their quality playing, hooks, amusing lyrics, fusiony feel given the Blockheads had cornered that market without sounding so middle class). Jakko Jakszyk of King Crimson was one of their horn players. Newcastle’s Last Exit (which produced Sting) are another example of this type of band. The Cardiacs just about broke through beyond their Tolworth and Kingston roots, though never to a significant degree. It led me to wonder what other local bands never broke despite a lot of talent and even some tunes. Recommendations?
