Known for their distinct British R'n'B sound and choppy guitar riffs, this group found fame in the mid '70s with tracks like top ten hit 'Milk and Alcohol' and 'Roxette' from number one live album Stupidity. The original line up included Wilko Johnson, Lee Brilleaux, John B. Sparks and John Martin who came together on Canvey Island and quickly became one of the most popular pub bands on the circuit. Since then there have been multiple line-up changes but this rhythm and blues band are back for a series of tour dates this autumn so don't miss out on seeing them back at their best - get your Dr. Feelgood tickets at StubHub.
Dr. Feelgood - New Line Up, New Sound
Taking their name from a 1962 record by Willie Perryman, the quartet originally came together in 1971 on Canvey Island and in only 3 years they had become one of the most popular bands in London's pub rock circuit. They recorded their debut Down by the Jetty with United Artists and were well known for their energetic performances, leading to a number one hit with their live record Stupidity in 1976. Wilko Johnson left the group in 1979, to be replaced by John 'Gypie' Mayo and the band saw a top ten hit with single 'Milk and Alcohol'. Mayo left the band in 1981 but the new line-up, still including Brilleaux, continued touring and making music throughout the '80s. Sadly after a short illness Brilleaux passed away in 1994, insisting prior to his death that the band continued. Every year since a memorial concert has been held on Canvey Island, as a celebration of the music the band made together in their early years. The group reunited in 1996 with new lead singer Pete Gage, who was then later replaced by Robert Kane in 1999. A film by Julien Temple, Oil City Confidential, was released at the 2009 London Film Festival, and received a standing ovation for its recounting of the band's early days.
