Mickey Jupp

Mickey Jupp was a pre-pub rock scene fixture throughout the 1970s as frontman with the band Legend.

Jupp’s solo debut LP, Juppanese (1978), was an album of two halves. Side one found him backed by Rockpile and cutting a barrelhouse rug on Makin’ Friends and If Only Mother, while the second side (where he was joined by Chris Spedding and Gary Brooker) was slicker and more soulful.

His singing resembled Jerry Lee Lewis with a British accent but his songwriting lacked imagination and wit except in a few rare instances.
