The Keggs – Girl (1967)

After last night’s storm of protest about the appearance of UB40 on this blog, I am under a lot of pressure to restore not just external credibility (….)  but, even more fundamentally, self belief in my judgement.

So, what better way to get back into folks’ good books then by posting the B Side of the only single that The Keggs ever made. Released in 1967, allegedly only 75 copies were pressed. The A Side “To Find Out” is not bad either.

What is clear is that one of those copies must have been owned by Jonathan Richman because, as this track will show, The Keggs set the blueprint for self conscious tales of unrequited love and personal failure.

Jonathan Richman is an utter genius and this track is the final proof of this assertion because, after all, “talent borrows, genius steals”. QED.
