"First Inmates DVD Ever Released! Two Fantastic Performances from 1980, the Heyday of This Wonderful Group."
|This DVD features excerpts of two performances (Dingwalls in London, Nelsons in Wimbledon) from 1980, the heyday of this wonderful group. These historical audio/visual recordings have been restored from existing source tapes. The Inmates were formed in North London in 1977 and soon established themselves as one of the capital's most popular live groups. Their influences included The Animals, The Pretty Thing, and The Rolling Stones. They arrived at the tail end of the pub-rock movement, but still managed to find success with their mix of originals and covers of classic R&B and Rock & Roll tunes. Of the latter, a version of The Standells' Dirty Water, included on the band's 1979 debut First Offence, became a hit on both sides of the Atlantic (reaching #51 on the Billboard Hot 100). Capitalizing on chart success throughout Europe and North America, the early eighties saw the band confirm their international status. They continue to tour successfully throughout Europe. This DVD serves as an important document of The Inmates and their contributions to Rock n Roll.|
