B.B. Blunder

Created in 1971, the innovative UK rock-band B.B. Blunder comprised Brian Godding (b. 19 August 1945, Wales; vocals, acoustic guitar, keyboards), Brian Belshaw (b. 25 Feb 1944, Wigan, Lancashire, Britain; bass/vocals) and Kevin Westlake (b. 5 March 1947, Eire, d. 29 Sept 2004; drums/vocals), all ex-members of Blossom Toes. The trio’s single album, Employees’ Playtime, shown an appreciably weighty sound, but this power was coupled with a penchant for quirky melody, notably around the loose ‘Rocky Ragbag’ the choral ‘New Day time’, as well as the gritty ‘Put YOUR CASH Where THE MOUTH AREA Is usually’. The arranged presented sterling support from Brian Auger, Julie Driscoll and Mick Taylor, but is usually similarly renowned for an imaginative sleeve style, that was a typographical spoof duplicate from the BBC publication Radio Occasions, both on leading and inside. B.B. Blunder also backed ex-Action vocalist Reggie Ruler during his short solo profession but, struggling to translate its cult charm into wider achievement, the music group was dissolved in 1972. Godding consequently joined up with Centipede, a jazz rock and roll collective, including Julie Driscoll and her spouse Keith Tippett.
