      A 60s gem

      Kippington Lodge might not roll off the tongue with the same ease as Oasis but the hairstyles are at least slightly similar! Kippington Lodge has a similar line up to Brinsley Schwarz but play a rather different type of music, the band took the name in 1967 having been playing under numerous other names since around 1964, the core of the band consists of school friends Brinsley Schwarz and Nick Lowe.

      The band could be described as slightly psychedelic but they are a lot softer sounding than the majority of their contemporaries, Kippington Lodge aren't as rocky as The Kinks or The Who, in fact most of their songs are very gentle and child like, more like early Pink Floyd. Think of a less sinister Eleanor Rigby and you have the kind of sound the band go for. Unlike The Beatles' "Yellow Submarine" these songs are well written and far from moronic.

      The majority of these tracks can be found on an album by Brinsley Schwarz called Hen's Teeth, it was until recently the only place you could find them but that album is a little rare and quite dear, so "Kippington Lodge: The Complete Recordings - 1967-1969" is pretty good value and a worthwhile buy for fans of 60s music, they may not have been particularly famous at the time and they may sound incredibly soft in today's world of thuggish tunes but I struggle to imagine any music fan not managing to find some time for awesome tracks like "Shy Boy" or "Lady on a Bicycle", personally I preferred this album to the later stuff by Brinsley Schwarz!
