The roots of Edmunds are located in the bluesgerichte pop of the fifties. His first and for the large pubiek well-known success came in 1970 with the song “I Hear You Knocking”, but a real breakthrough came paradoxically in full punkperiode when everything was older than, say, a year, according to the authoritative media and the punks themselves in the trash heard.

His collaboration with Nick Lowe, after his connection with the garagerockband Brinsley Schwarz was there, not strange. Edmunds and his band Rockpile scored with atypical punknummers as “Girls Talk” (Elvis Costello), “I Knew the Bride” Lowe and “Crawling from the Wreckage” of “punk” Graham Parker.

The guitarist put out later as a producer, the post-rockabillygroep Stray Cats a helping hand. Now Edmunds has responded to the siren that “Pension” is called. (Belga)
