Rocks In The Attic #232: Sad Café – ‘Fanx Ta-Ra’ (1977)

RITA#232The lady on the cover of this record looks like she’d be a great swimmer. Well, she’d definitely be a hit at the local pool anyway.

I’m not completely familiar with Sad Café, and given the lack of information about their albums on Wikipedia, it seems like the rest of the world isn’t either. They seem like the band that time forgot.

Produced at Strawberry Studios in Stockport, alongside fellow Mancunians 10CC (who they don’t sound a million miles from), Sad Café are a soulful AOR band from England’s northwest. Think Foreigner, but from Salford – which makes them sound much worse than they actually are.

Hit: Babylon

Hidden Gem: Shellshock

    Apologies. Rookie mistake – just got my S’s mixed up. I’ve even been past Strawberry Studios so I know full well where it is. Sorry to besmirch the good name of Stockport.

    I’ll fix it!
