Re: Winkies

I just heard Brian Eno's sole Peel Session where The Winkies were his backing band. Pretty strange combo, if you ask me. Some of the music sounded not unlike The Allman Brothers to my ears! The juxtaposition of such "normal" backing with Eno's songs & vocals was absolutely jarring. I've heard The Winkies bescribes as Pub Rock while these Eno sessions sounded otherwise. How would you describe The Winkies?

Glam rock via a Roxy Music filter, minus Andy McKay. A bass player is a bass player. Other guys in Winkies sound like UK 70's pub rock guys - 'too old' for real (teenybopper) glam rock. But where else to put em? They're not prog, about as 'pub rock' as MTH.
