Rockpile

During the late '70s, Rockpile was the touring band for both Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe. Like Edmunds, the band was passionate about traditional rock & roll. Like Lowe, the band played with a reckless, trashy abandon. Driven by the powerful rhythm section of drummer Terry Williams and Lowe's bass, guitarists Billy Bremner and Edmunds were free to spit out crushing rock, blues, rockabilly, and country licks. With their fierce live energy and unpretentious rock & roll, the band fit easily into the post-punk new wave at the end of the decade.

Although they only released one album as a group -- 1980's Seconds of Pleasure -- the band provided support for most of the albums Lowe and Edmunds recorded in the late '70s. After the rushed release of Seconds of Pleasure, the band toured one last time before splitting apart, largely due to mismanagement. All of the members continued to occasionally collaborate with each other throughout the '80s. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

The Central park show with Blondie was in 1979 - I was there as well. First time seeing them live.
I saw Rockpile 4-5 times both as headliners and as supporting acts. I still follow Nick and have seen him well over 25 times. Met him almost every time as he is great about doing a meet and greet after his shows. Saw Dave as a solo act 5-6 times but from what I understand he is retired. I would love to see a reunion.
Still have this on Vinyl
Saw Rockpile 07/13/79 open for Blondie at the Tower Theatre in Philly. Rockpile stole the show. Saw them again the following year at the Heatwave Festival in Bowmansville Ontario. That was a smokn' longer set. I wish they would get back together, maybe in 2015 for the 35th anniversary of the Seconds of Pleasure album. Hey if Graham Parker & The Rumour could reform after 32 years, anything is possible.

Saw them in Central Park w/ Blondie. Thought it was earlier than 79 but probably not.

I saw them at Sunrise in 1979. Blondie was the headline act; a real let down after Dave and Nick.

Great band. .Love Rockpile. DE only bummed me out when he was too buzzed to finish show at Rainbow Music Hall. Greeley was awesome tho
album, and enclosed ep, excellent. live show in glasow superb! hot and sweaty!
I don't know who wrote it, but this is a great bio! Unless it was Steve.
I have worn out 2 albums copies and 3 CD's of Seconds of Pleasure since I first bought it in 1980. I think that says it all.
AHHHHHHHH, The best album of all time. What a collection of talent! I would have gone to the Show in Providence, RI when the tour was happening, but sadly...They disbanded in the middle of the tour before getting there. What a complete bummer!
Genius
Only one album--but it is PERFECT.
