Hotlegs music CDs Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the solo album from this '60s British band who eventually became 10cc. Thanks to the novelty hit nature of the million-selling single 'Neanderthal Man', little attention was paid at the time to the other recordings cut by pre-10cc act Hotlegs. That's a shame, because the album Hotlegs Thinks: School Stinks was a veritable smorgasbord of turn-of-the-decade studio pop moves that deserves to be considered alongside the heavyweights of the era. With its roots in the aborted 1969 Frabjoy & Runcible Spoon (aka Kevin Godley & Lol Creme) album for Giorgio Gomelsky's Marmalade label, the Hotlegs LP was a daringly ambitious creation, peaking on the White Album-era McCartneyish ballads 'Take Me Back' and 'Today', the equally beautiful, Beach Boys-inspired 'All God's Children' and the sumptuous, 13 minute song suite 'On My Way/Indecision/The Return' ("our version of Side Two of Abbey Road", according to Godley). Recording information: Strawberry Studios, Manchester (1970-1971). Personnel: Lol Creme (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Eric Stewart (vocals, guitar); Kevin Godley (vocals, drums, percussion); Mike Bell (saxophone); Ian Brookes (trumpet). Audio Remasterer: Paschal Byrne.

Hotlegs discography The rudiments of history should be familiar to all. Fresh from the breakup of the Mindbenders, guitarist Eric Stewart and songwriter Graham Gouldman opened their own Strawberry Studios in Stockport, England. Joined by Lol Creme and Kevin Godley, but temporarily shedding Gouldman, who promptly relocated to New York, the gang were experimenting with drum sounds when a passing record company executive spotted a hit amongst the hitting -- "Neanderthal Man," the most distinctive smash of 1970, was born, and by year's end the trio was working on an entire album. The fact that only one other track, the tribal joke "Um Wah Um Woh," even glanced in the direction of "Neanderthal Man" lets you know just how seriously Hotlegs were taking their fame. Few people would care about Hotlegs today had the trio (plus the returning Gouldman) not subsequently reinvented themselves as 10cc, and it is reassuring to note that much of that band's instant charm and excitement is already present amid Thinks: School Stinks. The 12-minute "Suite F.A." actively fore- and overshadows Godley-Creme's next attempt at elongating their artform, The Original Soundtrack's similarly protracted "Une Nuit a Paris," while the aforementioned "Um Wah" packs a wildly panning guitar solo to die for. Similarly, the angelic ballads which Godley long continued prone to (the lovely "Fly Away," "Take Me Back"); the seering ...
