"A little oddity for a Friday evening, which I found at the end of a live tape… There is no music just our heroines Jane, Alice & Tracey being interviewed.How Jane, a model of politeness, managed just a slightly embarrassed laugh after Andy Batten-Foster’s first question, rather than “Oh Mr Batten-Foster, you are a cock-knob of such staggering proportions, shall we start again?” is beyond me…However, the interview does reveal a number of things: Ben Watt was lurking in the corridor outside, that Hull is a bit quiet & my favourite, when people asked John Peel for his autograph he insisted on having one of theirs in return…. Bless!"
"Red Lights" performed live in the studio.
Howard Bowler-lead guitar, Eric Li- keys, David Bowler-drums, Jim
Clifford-bass, circa 1976. via Oliver Twist on Facebook. I used to read about these guys in "Rock Scene".
Jason Ankeny in the All Music Guide: "New York City power pop quartet the Marbles formed in 1974. Singer/guitarist Howard Bowler co-founded the group with his brother, drummer David Bowler, and the David's former Columbia University classmate Jim Clifford on bass. Keyboardist Eric Li
completed the lineup. By 1975, the Marbles were regular headliners at
the legendary Bowery venue CBGB's, where they shared bills with the Ramones, Blondie and Talking Heads.
In addition to their identical pudding-bowl haircuts and conservative
dress, the quartet also stood in stark contrast to the prevailing NYC
culture thanks to a harmony-rich pop sensibility. In 1976, the Marbles
nevertheless joined Television and Patti Smith
on the landmark Ork label with their debut single "Red Lights." The
group then cut several tracks for a proposed CBGB compilation that went
unreleased, and was a featured artist in Amos Poe's seminal punk film Blank Generation. New York Rocker editor Alan Betrock
was also a champion of their music and helped the Marbles land a deal
with the Jimboco label for their second single, "Forgive and Forget," a
staple on New York station WNEW. The Marbles split in 1979, but the
Bowler brothers later reunited in the group Contraband. Li died of a drug overdose in 1989."
