Scurvy and ricketts also sound like bad TV detectives (Crockett and Tubbs with issues), a law firm you wouldn't use or an awful folk duo that make you itch at the very mention of their name...

@ sem Chumbo 23 Skidoo are a British band playing a fusion of industrial, post-punk, alternative dance, rock, and world music. The group was named after an early 20th-century American slang phrase that later made appearances in the works of Aleister Crowley, William S. Burroughs, Robert Anton Wilson, and filmmaker Julian Bigg

@ P-90 when he played with John Lennon and when he was in the film Tommy he was coolish
Avatar Sat. 8/30/14 4:48am Fran:

Same with me Bill - he had some excellent material early on - turned into a ridiculous circus act and then has redeemed his credibility although I'm passive about his material. But as Brian says he is a real fan and that commands respect. Its odd but there is a clutch of 70s singer songwriters who are dismissed as cheese but if you delve into their (usually earlier) catalogues there is often more than the odd flash of genius which has been overlooked unfairly due to cheese or pop hit moments - classic case is Gilbert O'Sullivan

Ok, Esquivel Infinity in Sound Vols 1-2 have been added to party list. Any other random suggestions for this swanky soiree?

Elton john's early stuff can get epic. Some song about NY?

Those of us old enough to remember those ancient days when Elton was cool also remember that that it was really the duo of Elton and Bernie Taupin that was cool...

@Guido - must be an extry special recording - wonder how that happened.

Marmalade Kitty - you do need to look beyond the cheese with GO'S - you'll find reissues of his older albums reviewed more fairly based on their merits i.e. if no one told you it was him you would never guess

@P-90 Is there a better song than Lady Samantha?

There should be no guilty secrets around music - remembering that Esquivel was your parents muzak and at 18 you would never admit to liking that but in this revisionist world it is all now super cool and visionary!

"Lady Samantha"1 That's going WAY back. Cool early single, I don't think anyone in America heard it until Elton became well known a few years later.
