The Vibrators

One of the unsung heroes of the British punk scene, The Vibrators were there at the birth of the movement, playing their first gig at the legendary 100 Club "International Festival of Punk" in 1976 as the backing band to Chris Spedding. They went on to support Iggy And The Stooges (during which they were joined by David Bowie on keyboards) and found cult success with early albums Pure Mania (1977) and V2 (1978). Yet, although their raucous, full-throttle energy never really gained the same recognition as some of their contemporaries, critics raved about them, saying they perfectly captured punk's youthful rush of anarchic rage on singles such as Automatic Lover, Baby Baby and London Girls; and Mojo magazine named Judy Says (Knock You In The Head) in their list of greatest punk rock singles of all time. Stiff Little Fingers named themselves after one of the group's songs and they were fiercely championed by John Peel. Despite numerous line-up changes along the way, the band has continued under the leadership of drummer Eddie Edwards.
