Brinsley Schwarz, “Brinsley Schwarz,” One Way Records. In 1978, when Nick Lowe was making a name for himself as a pop mastermind, and Brinsley Schwarz and Bob Andrews were key components of Graham Parker’s blistering Rumour, the powers that were at Capitol Records decided to compile a bunch of material from the records these three had made in conjunction with Bill Rankin as the band Brinsley Schwarz. Since Elvis Costello was still a year away from covering Lowe’s most famous contribution to this outfit, “What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace, Love and Understanding?,” that song is left off this reissue from a few years ago. Or maybe it was contracted to a different label. Who knows? Anyway, what we have here is a band of talented English musicians aping the moves of American West Coasters like Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and the Jefferson Airplane. It’s all quite nice, though you’re not gonna get a whole lot of the energy or the undeniable hooks of their later work.
