The album also features special guest stars such as Jools Holland, Buddy Holly’s drummer Jerry Allison & Hugh Laurie.
They reached the top twenty in 1979 with Gertcha, which became a nationwide catchphrase. This was followed by The Sideboard Song. In 1980 they hit the charts with Rabbit, which reached no. 8 in the charts and had a no. 2 record in 1982 with Ain’t No Pleasing You.
Chas & Dave are great musicians and know how to give an audience a good time. They have gained a cult audience of both young and old, and due to public demand they are about to be seen together on stage once more. They will be performing all the hits that made this Cockney duo famous.
