BILLY BREMNERS ROCKFILES – A TRIBUTE TO ROCKPILE.  Konsertstart 20.30

 

You cant get any closer than this to the legendary ROCKPILE! Billy Bremner is still a hell of a player and he still sing like he use to do! Its material from Rockpile, Dave Edmunds, Billy Bremner and Nick Lowe that is the bands mission. Its pure Rock´n´Roll at its best, its high energy and guitar based music! The band have played together in different bands over 25 years.They did a big tour in USA November 2022, they recorded a few gigs thats going to be released soon as a ”Live In USA” CD.

The band have done 3 CD´s/LP´s.

Billy Bremner; Guitar/Vocals. (Billy have played with; Paul McCartney, Pretenders, Johnny Cash, Little Richard, Carlene Carter, The Walker Brothers, Phil Lynnot, Shakin´Stevens and many many more..).

Micke Finell; Bass/Vocals (from Dave Edmunds Band, The Refreshments).
Ingemar Rogefeldt; Guitar (From Swedens Rock´n´Roll mega star – Jerry Williams/Pugh Rogefeldt & Rainrock).
Peder Sundahl; Drums/Vocals (From Swedens Rock´n´Roll mega star – Jerry Williams & Roadwork).

 

Bremner first became known playing with The Luvvers, who served as Lulu’s backing band.[2] However, by the time Bremner joined the group in 1966, they were on the wane; Bremner did not play on any of Lulu’s recorded material, and joined just after the group recorded their only single without Lulu (”The House on the Hill”/”Most Unlovely”) for Parlophone in 1966. The Luvvers disbanded in 1967.

In 1971, Bremner added some guitar work to March Hare, the first solo album from ex-Honeybus member Colin Hare. He then became a member of the Neil Innes band Fatso, which went on to record the soundtrack for the original Rutland Weekend Television series.[2]

As ”Bill Murray” he released two singles produced by Kris Ife: ”Downtown Hoedown” / ”Rhyme And Reason” (Polydor 2058 881, 1977) and ”Heart and the Stone” / ”I Don’t Wanna Be No Hero” (State Records STAT 72, 1978).

Next, he joined Rockpile, who only released one album under their own name, but also served as the band for most of Nick Lowe’s and Dave Edmunds’ albums in the 1970s.[2] In addition to his guitar playing, Bremner occasionally sang lead, as he did on ”Heart” and ”You Ain’t Nothing But Fine” on the 1980 Rockpile album Seconds of Pleasure. He also wrote Edmunds’ hit ”Trouble Boys” (which Edmunds would let him sing live), but used an alias, Billy Murray, on the writing credits, so as not to be confused with the more famous Scottish footballer, of the same name. ”Trouble Boys” was covered by Thin Lizzy on a single in 1981. Another song by him, ”The Creature from the Black Lagoon”, appeared on Edmunds’ third solo album, Repeat When Necessary.[3]

After Rockpile split in 1981, Bremner released two solo singles on Stiff Records ”Loud Music In Cars” / ”The Price is Right” (BUY 125)[2] and ”Laughter Turns to Tears” / ”Tired and Emotional” (BUY 143).[4] Bremner then played lead guitar on The Pretenders’ 1982 hit single ”Back On The Chain Gang[2] / ”My City Was Gone” and later provided lead guitar for their 1990 album Packed!.

Bremner released his first solo album, Bash!, in 1984,[1] containing songs co-written with The Records’ Will Birch, and covers of songs by Elvis Costello, and Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze.[5] Bash! featured a rhythm section of Dave Kerr-Clemenson from Fast Buck on bass and Terry Williams from Rockpile on drums. Bremner played all the guitar parts and sang the harmonies with Kerr-Clemenson.

After stints in Los AngelesCalifornia, (where he played in the bands of Pat McLaughlin and Rosie Flores) and Nashville, Tennessee Bremner moved to Sweden in the 1990s where he met The Refreshments,[1] producing and playing on their album It’s Gotta Be Both Rock ’n’ Roll. A second solo album, A Good Week’s Work, followed in 1999 and a third No Ifs, Buts, Maybes in 2006, both recorded in Sweden. His most recent solo album, Rock Files, was issued in 2012.

Bremner was also a member of Stockholm-based band Trouble Boys with Sean Tyla and two Swedish musicians,[6] who released an album called Bad Trouble in September 2012
