THE TUBES

FEATURING FEE WAYBILL

WHEN YOU THINK OF QUAY LUDE, AN OCTOPUS ARMED GEISHA GIRL, CHEERLEADERS, CARNIVAL BARKERS, BUSINESS SUITS, SPINNING KEYBOARDS, STRAIGHT JACKETS, LEATHER COD PIECES WITH ZIPPERED HOODS AND A BABIES ARM HOLDING AN APPLE ALL ROLLED INTO ONE YOU HAVE TO BE THINKING ABOUT ONE OF THE MOST VISUAL ROCK BANDS EVER - THE TUBES. 

AFTER OPENING UP FOR LED ZEPPELIN, IGGY POP & THE NEW YORK DOLLS IN THE EARLY 1970'S, SAN FRANCISCO ROCK BAND THE TUBES,RELEASED THEIR EPONYMOUSLY TITLED DEBUT ALBUM IN 1975 ON A & M RECORDS. THIS INCLUDED THE HIT SINGLE "WHITE PUNKS ON DOPE" WHICH WENT ON TO BE COVERED BY BOTH NINA HAGEN AND MOTLEY CRUE AND OTHER CLASSICS SUCH AS "MONDO BONDAGE" & "WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM LIFE?".

THE TUBES WERE REKNOWN FOR THEIR THEATRICAL LIVE SHOWS (SINGER FEE WAYBILL BROKE HIS LEG LEAPING OFF STAGE INTO THE AUDIENCE WITH A CHAINSAW) WHICH AT THEIR HEIGHT FEATURED DOZENS OF EXTRAS INCLUDING ACROBATS AND TAP DANCERS. THE BAND RELEASED THREE MORE ALBUMS ON A & M BEFORE LEAVING IN 1982 AND RELEASING THEIR MOST SUCCESSFUL ALBUM TO DATE "THE COMPLETION BACKWARDS PRINCIPLE" WHICH CONTAINED THE HITS "DON'T WANT TO WAIT ANYMORE", "SUSHI GIRL" AND "TALK TO YOU LATER". IN 1983 THEY FOLLOWED THIS UP WITH THEIR MOST WELL KNOWN SONG "SHE'S A BEAUTY" WHICH WENT TOP 10 IN THE USA CHARTS.

WITHOUT DOUBT ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING SHOWS THAT WILL EVER HAVE VISITED THE PICTUREDROME....AND QUITE SIMPLY NOT TO BE MISSED.
