Great band who were at their best between 1974 and 1981. Lee Brilleaux had a great punky voice whilst guitarist Wilko Johnson was unique.

Excellent. I only really like them when they were at their peak- between 1974 and 1981. Lee Brilleaux was a brilliant vocalist.

Two excellent box sets out at the moment:
'All Through the City' (4CDs) covering the Wilko years (1974 -1977)
'Taking No Prisoners (4CDs) post Wilko (1977 - 1987)

The bands gritty, hard-edged r&b sound is worth exploring for fans of the earlier Elvis sound. Wilko Johnson is currently playing farewell gigs as he has terminal cancer. I have read several interviews with him and have been impressed with his philosophical and stoical attitude towards his condition, as he has shown tremendous positivity when it would be easy to lapse into despair. In the face of death he is inspiringly life-affirming.

I have purchased both those box sets and am pleased with them both. The DVD footage is great too. Also worth seeing is "Oil City Confidential", the film about the band's early years.
