The Lambrettas In-depth Biography

The Lambrettas}, featuring Jez Bird} (guitar/vocals/keyboards), Doug Saunders} (guitar), Mark Ellis} (bass), and Paul Wincer} (drums), jumped on the Jam}-inspired mod revival} bandwagon of the late '70s, dressing in matching mohair suits and naming themselves after one of the mod}-favored motor scooters. Although decidedly derivative, the Lambrettas} proved to be one of the most fondly remembered bands of the mod revival}. The band formed in the mod} mecca of Brighton and, under the leadership of Bird}'s catchy songwriting, proved to be more than just Jam} sound-alikes, leaving behind mod}-life arrogance/elitism in favor of a pure pop} sensibility. The band signed to Elton John}'s Rocket Records} in 1979 and after one failed single, "Go Steady,"} had a U.K. hit with their cover of Leiber and Stoller}'s "Poison Ivy."} The follow-up singles "D-a-a-ance"} and "Another Day (Another Girl)"} also charted in the U.K. The latter (originally titled "Page Three"}), with its not-so-thinly veiled jabs at The Sun} newspaper's practice of placing photos of topless women on page three, earned them some notoriety when the newspaper threatened legal action. Beat Boys in the Jet Age}, their debut LP, released in 1980, collected the early singles and other similar-sounding originals. Though it did make it into the British charts, the mod revival} fad had pretty much run its course. Subsequent singles and a second album, 1981's Ambience}, were commercial flops despite efforts to break from the mod} mold. The band called it quits in 1982, playing their final gig in London, on April 14, 1982. Bird} regrouped the band in the '90s, playing small venues in England, and recorded several demos for a new album which never saw the light of day. ~ Chris Woodstra, All Music Guide
