Brinsley Schwarz

Brinsley Schwarz
Brinsley Schwarz were a 70s English pub rock band, named after their guitarist Brinsley Schwarz. With Nick Lowe on bass and vocals, keyboardist Bob Andrews and drummer Billy Rankin, the band evolved from the 60s pop band Kippington Lodge. They were later augmented by Ian Gomm on guitar and vocals. Although the band did not achieve great success during their time together, Lowe and Gomm both went on to prominent solo careers, and the others have remained active in other bands.
