Manic Jabs



Manic Jabs

1979-1980

Pure St Albans Punk - the Jabs were the real deal. With only a handful of songs, the group were the perfect soundtrack for a Saturday night - treading the lager-soaked carpets of the Horn Of Plenty.

Charlie Dobbs (vocals), Paul Bradbury (guitar), Neil Brimblecombe (bass) and Lawrence Croucher (drums) recorded their lone 45 for Waldo's at Alvic Studios in Earl's Court - opposite the Nashville. On reflection, the sound could have been less over-produced and more of their rawness captured! Still, live, they were a raucous musical rush.
