Today’s Music to keep me SaNe in Isolation – Family

Family were another of those bands that I used to often see on the underground circuit. The thing that made them very different was Roger Chapman’s warbling vocals. They were superb live, but I don’t think they ever captured the brilliance of their stage act on vinyl.

I remember Roger smashing a bottle against the wall at the climax of a gig at the Mecca in Ilford. I believe that resulted in a ban from all Meccas around the country.

I saw them at a Christmas gig where they played a lot of old Rock ‘n’ Roll and really got the audience going!

They were superb.

So today I will have another listen to some of my favourites.


I'd like to hear from you...
