Kippington Lodge released five excellent singles on Parlophone Records between 1967 and 1969, yet they remain one of the least known English pop groups of the late sixties.This despite boasting a line-up that included Nick Lowe as well as Brinsley Schwarz and Bob Andrews (future members of Graham Parker & The Rumour) who would all find fame and in Lowe s case, fortune for their musical exploits in the decades to follow.Kippington Lodge have been afforded so little recognition that with the exception of having their singles crudely tacked on to a Brinsley Schwarz compilation CD in 1998 their output has never been presented and evaluated in the proper context.The group – whose first two singles were produced by famed EMI producer Mark Wirtz , including their contemporary version of the Keith West penned Shy Boy, today a regular on 60 s radio programmes – was a true creature of the sixties.


“Only lead
vocalist Schwartz himself features on the first two singles, the jaunty Shy Boy
and the impossibly catchy Rumours – both the handiwork of producer Mark Wirtz,
who also masterminded Keith West’s Top 10 hit Excerpt From A Teenage Opera.”
