First came across this woefully underrated band when? they supported Queen at the Birmingham NEC (which made them the first ever band to play there!) in 1980….how were they never huge??!
Pure powerpop at its finest….all three albums are class. Best accolade I can give them is that they were like an English Cheap Trick in sound….

Rick Cassman Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals
Steve Cherry Bass, Vocals
Andy Hass Saxophone
Boot Kingsman Guitar, Saxophone, Vocals
Paul Turner Drums, Keyboards

Formed in early 1976, the band after gigging the uk pub rock circuit soon went on to being discovered and signed by Pete Townshend of WHO fame. He released the first album ‘No Noise From Here’ on his EEL PIE records label. Subsequently the band got picked up by Transatlantic Records(UK) and RCA in the States.Releasing shuffle n Cut’ and then their 3rd album straight To The Heart’ in 1982. Unfortunately just as the band were due to begin a World Tour supporting The Who, drummer keith Moon died and the rest is history.
—————————————————
The songs made by Straight Eight would maybe have been considered better than those on the final Who albums. Pete noticed as well,which is why Straight Eight were signed to his own Eel Pie label and he was listed as Executive Producer. Lineup was Rick Cassman, Boot Kingsman, Steve Cherry and Rod Berriedale-Johnson. Shuffle ‘n’ Cut was the second album of the band bringing up some outstanding catchy tunes (“I’m Sorry”, “Tonite” and “Christine”).

Heres now a great album by this awesome band from London and their music is quite brilliant. On this release are 12 powerpop pearls which kicks the blues out of every depressive mind. Heres some info from their MySpace site for you: “Formed in early 1976, the band after gigging the uk pub rock circuit soon went on to being discovered and signed by Pete Townshend of WHO fame. He released the first album ‘No Noise From Here’ on his EEL PIE records label. Subsequently the band got picked up by Transatlantic Records (UK) and RCA in the States.

Unfortunately just as the band were due to begin a World Tour supporting The Who, drummer keith Moon died and the rest is history. Lineup was Rick Cassman, Boot Kingsman, Steve Cherry and Rod Berriedale-Johnson. After a massive departure from the UK music scene, the band are busy arranging a best of compliation CD. Lead vocalist and main songwriter Rick Cassman has also been busy playing and producing in The Deputies and has also been involved with Twickenhams Club Acoustica. The Band recently got back together for a few numbers at Club Acoustica and enjoyed it so much they are planning an official reunion gig sometime in 2010 to celebrate their 30th aniversary!!”
Great Band, Great Stuff, Great Record!!
