5.0 out of 5 stars Streetwalker's final two studio albums on one CD., 28 Aug 2009

This review is from: STREETWALKERS/RED CARD & VICIOUS BUT FAI (Audio CD)
After Family (one of the best loved British 'underground' acts) split up, the two main people, (singer Roger 'Chappo' Chapman and guitarist John 'Charlie' Whitney) recorded an album called 'Streetwalkers' then formed a band of the same name. That band recorded three studio albums and a live album. This CD contains the second and the third studio albums.

Red Card is the better album. I first heard most of the songs from it when Streetwalkers supported the Who in Swansea. The songs are more straightforward rock than Family, not quite as good (well, better than the final Family album) but good none-the-less. Standouts include the opening track and the slightly humerous (or is that tragic - it would be for the main character) Me An' Me Horse An' Me Rum. It features one cover, 'Daddy Rolling Stone', which is a good version of that song (ironically, the Who also recorded this on the 'b' side of one of their singles - I forget which).

Vicious but Fair is almost as good, with the tongue-in-cheek Chilli Con Carne (Chappo always was good at tongue-in-cheek lyrics), the well controlled 'Dice Man' and the rallying-cry of 'Can't Come In' - which would carry over into the start of Chappo's solo career (virtually forgotten at home, very successful on the continent, particularly Germany).

5.0 out of 5 stars Its all about timing?, 29 April 2013

I remember seeing this band on a bill with Alex Harvey, Little Feat and The Who,
it was The Who bottom of the league that day!
A great pair of albums from a great band, Chappo - what a voice!
Immense grooves from the rhythm section,
great dynamics and a ton of soul.

I guess their time was not to be,
lots of internal changes, too much time outside the UK? and of course Punk...

These two albums and the first are red hot.
