More Booze: Five Rounds Of Tasty Pub Rock

Along with Ducks Deluxe, here are some more major pub-rock players.

Pub rock in the 70s might have been very much a British scene, but in fact it was started by a trio of American guys.



If anyone can claim to be the originators of pub rock, then it was ex-pat Americans Jack O’Hara, Austin de Lone and Brien Hopkins, whose residency at North London boozer the Tally Ho was the scene’s ground zero. Ironically, they’d moved back the US by the time their country rock-influenced sole LP was released.

Key album: Good ’N’ Cheap (A&M, 1972)
