(October 7, 2017): Eddie + The Hot Rods – Teenage Depression

From the 1976 UK single, Teenage Depression / Shake.  With Dave Higgs writing songs, the first iteration of Eddie & The Hot Rods was at the intersection of pub rock (think Dr. Feelgood) and the emergence of punk (think the Damned).  Indeed, two of the tunes off the Teenage Depression LP, from which today’s single comes, were recorded at The Marquee where Eddie + The Hot Rods were resident in 1976. One night during the summer, the Sex Pistols were their opening act, playing their first London gig and famously smashing the Hot Rods’ instruments.  The initial UK pressing of the LP came with a fold up poster of the band.
