Barry Blood –Poor Annie

Barry Blood –Poor Annie/ On The Run –Alaska ALA 24 (1975 UK)

Supposedly a descendant of Captain Blood… Poor Annie is closer to middle of the range Pub Rock than all out buccaneering Glam. The guitar sound is relatively crunchy and the track comes across like Ducks Deluxe (playing the 100 club in October!) track with a few more chords thrown in. The B side is interestingly sparse. It was probably a live in the studio demo with just electric guitar, slightly off mic vocals and drums. Not quite Doctor Ross or John Lee Hooker, but pretty cool all the same. Barry later recorded an Eastenders off shoot song: Killing Time (Angie’s song) and She’s The Queen Of My Rock ‘N’ Roll in ‘82 .
