THE ALBERTS - British Rubbish Revisited

THE ALBERTS - British Rubbish Revisited
CD / Product Number: URCD300

The Alberts were a British music/comedy troupe of the mid-1950s to mid-1960s, featuring brothers Anthony ‘Tony’ (slide cornet) and Douglas ‘Dougie’ Gray (multi-instrumentalist), along with Bruce Lacey. Dougie Gray was also founder member of The Temperance Seven! These rare tracks remain as a testament to the influence their manic legacy had on future British comedy bands like The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, The Lounge Lizards and Bob Kerr’s Whoopee Band. The band played An Evening Of British Rubbish at the Comedy Theatre in London’s West End for a year in early 1960s cementing the band’s reputation at the forefront of British comedy.

Reviews of This Recording

Founder of U3A Eric Midwinter wrote in British Music Hall Society’s magazine Callboy: British Rubbish Revisited, a CD of high anarchy. The music of the absurd is heart-warming yet knowing as well as hilarious entertainment’
