Someone on here practically implied they were pop heirs to the Beatles. They sound more like forerunners of Black Lace.


Good lad.


Credit where credit is due, Hen, Chris.

Surely the only band that deserve to be described as forerunners to the mighty Black Lace were the even more awesome Paper Lace?

Worth watching.



I watched it first time it was on. All of them came across really well, interesting to listen as they spoke about how they worked in the studio. Then they played the actual music and it was as dull as fuck, nothing that they expressed as individuals was actually in the music. Which is a rare talent when you think about it.
