Image from Discogs
Powered by Audioscrobbler™The Bachelor Pad (1986 - 1991) left a legacy on their wake. The vinyl output started with the famous Sha La La flexi via "Simply Thrilled" and "Are You Scared to Get Happy" fanzines, before 2 singles with Leeds based Warhola Sound records, a LP with Imaginary Records and 3 releases with Egg Records. The Egg releases included a LIVE EP distributed with several fanzines in the UK, US, Japan, Germany and France. The second Egg release was a 7" single "Smoothie" before the 5 track "Jenny Brown" EP single.

The Bachelor Pad started life as Vocals/Guitars - Tommy Cherry, Vocals/Guitars - Martin Cotter, Keyboards - David Harris, Bass - Willie Bain, Drums - Graham Adam. Christine Gibson replaced Willie at some point around 1989. Tom Donnelly (ex The Close Lobsters) replaced Martin around 1990

The Bachelor Pad gigs where plentiful and memorable. Some of the highlights were supporting The Wedding Present at the Barrowlands, Glasgow (with the go go dancer), the debut gig in Edinburgh (with Baby Lemonade and Jesse Garon) and the first show without Martin at King Tuts.

"The Lovely Jenny Brown is a classic .. " Simon Williams, NME.

"I'm a bit of a fan to be honest. The lead track is more obviously psychedelic and Beatles influenced than usual, while "last summers dirt" returns to the Ramones fixation, with a bit of cheesey organ thrown in. The other songs typify the crazy rumbling madness which has made the bands name. Another cracker" - Spiral Scratch

"like a Peel session from hell" - The Catalogue
