Top 10 Pub Rock Bands

Pub rock was a British musical genre which endured from the early 1970s to the early 80s. It’s a genre that is defined less by a specific musical style than by the venues that the bands played in: London pubs that featured live music, often in a room downstairs from the main bar, where patrons drank and danced . . .

The Tally Ho pub in Kentish Town is generally considered the birthplace of the scene, which started when American band Eggs Over Easy – who had migrated from the Bay Area to London and couldn’t get any gigs – managed to persuade the landlord to let them play there and replaced the traditional jazz music that the pub had previously featured.
