Unequalled: Wanna hear some 60's British R&B pop?
- They're probably best known for doing the original version of "Police On My Back
", later covered by the Clash. Or the fact that they were fronted by Eddy Grant over a decade before he "rocked down to Electric Avenue". But the Equals
were much more than that. →
[More:] They did straight ahead British rock/pop
and occasionally veered into goofy bubblegum territory
. And they made some great hard driving R&B
, as seen in this cut, my personal fave.
Although they only managed to get a few albums out before slipping away, for me they were one of the best bands of the 60s. They had a few British chart hits, but seem to be a footnote in rock history.
