Post 417 - Rabbit - Too Much Rock 'n' Roll LP

Rabbit was described as frenetic and violently hedonistic, and their second album here for you to download "Too Much Rock n Roll" (SBP 234866) was released in October, 1976 after the release of another two singles. Tinson and Screen then left the band. Barry Lytton joined as drummer and Tinson was not replaced. Recorded at Albert Studios and produced by Peter Dawkins & Bruce Brown this was their last LP for CBS. A non LP single, followed a version of The Raiders' "Let Me", appeared in early 1977. Rabbit split up that same year when both Evans and Porteus left. Tinson, Porteus and Screen then formed Heroes who released an album in 1980. Hinds joined Finch. Tinson and Screen also worked together in Swanee and The Tex Pistols. Dave Evans went on to a string of other bands.
