LOW NUMBERS (Buy CDs by this artist)
Twist Again with the Low Numbers (Rhino) 1978

The Low Numbers were an ad hoc studio invention attempting a conceptual exercise in Brit-pop nostalgia. The songs on this full-length in-joke — eight originals plus a quartet of very hip covers (has anyone else ever recorded the Who's obscure "Early Morning Cold Taxi"?) — may lack polish, but tongue-in-cheek lyrics and '60s-styled music makes it good low-rent entertainment for Anglophile smart-alecks.
