The Gorillas, "She's My Gal"
KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are in Olympic Studios, Church Road, Barnes, London in June 1976 for The Gorillas' "She's My Gal", produced by Roger Armstrong and released on Chiswick Records...
"The Gorillas (not with a Z - different band) were led by the West London music scene veteran Jesse Hector, who goes back to the beginning of the British rock'n'roll scene, having performed at the legendary 2 I's Cafe. But in 1976 he seemed much younger and his band, once known as The Hammersmith Gorillas, seemed to provide a link between beat boom r'n'b and the exploding punk scene, despite his penchant for huge sideburns and rupert check flared trousers. A truly unique individual who never made it to the next level." - KV
