In 78, on EMI with Rockney

came ‘Strummin’ – their first UK chart entry,

and in 79 on EMI,  followed ‘Gertcha’,

which peaked at No.20.

 

‘The Sideboard Song (Got My Beer In The Sideboard here)’-

their last offering of 79 on EMI,

and in 80 on the Rockney label,

along came ‘Rabbit’, reaching a Top Ten high.

 

In 81, ‘Stars Over 45’ climbed to No.21,

and in 82, ‘Ain’t No Pleasing You’ made No.2 –

(and like ‘Rabbit’, had an 11 week chart run,

with ‘Margate’ next at No.46 – their last hit of 82.

 

‘London Girls’ and ‘My Melancholy Baby’ –

their hits of 83 – still on the Rockney label.

‘Snooker Loopy’ with  Pot 147 Matchroom Mob –

a No.6 of 86, they brought to the table.

 

Thank You for the Music and Fun.

 

RIP   Chas Hodges  1943 – 2018
