Little Bob Story * London date Postponed *
** We regret to inform you that Little Bob's London date has been postponed until the spring. (Bob had a bad fall in Le Harve yesterday and broke his arm in two places). **
Legendary French rockers Little Bob Story see their classic 1977 album "Off The Rails" reissued this month and to celebrate, their frontman plays a super-rare London show with his new band Little Bob Blues Bastards at the 100 Club.
Hailing from Le Havre, Little Bob Story – fronted by Italian-born Roberto Piazza – came to the attention of punks, having appeared at the now infamous Mont de Marsan festivals of 1976 and 1977. Their high-energy R'n'B saw them often compared to Dr Feelgood and the MC5 and earned them a deal with Chiswick Records and later a spot on Phonogram’s ubiquitous red-sleeved "New Wave" comp.
The Chiswick album "Off The Rails" was produced by Ducks Deluxe and Tyla Gang frontman Sean Tyla and engineered by a shredded John Burns immediately after recording the first Motorhead album.
Little Bob Blues Bastards – who are also celebrating the release of a band new album "Howlin'" play the 100 Club on Oxford Street on Tuesday 29 December.
