Richmond ... one time
"In Richmond we've all got the right credentials. In Richmond where the breakfast's continental. In Richmond where the cigarettes are menthol ..." Arturo Bassick was in an early incarnation of The Lurkers (playing on Shadow and Freak Show) before going off to start his own group Pinpoint. Their debut single, Richmond, was another classic slice of class war south west London style. But in the interests of balance it's worth mentioning the legendary Crawdaddy club in Richmond. Without Giorgio Gomelsky's place where would we be? Logical links take us to Crawdaddy Simone by The Syndicats. But if you don't know that ... If you do know that you'll love this. Arturo would approve.
