  • Groovy coppers - let's be havin' em

    I am having difficulty thinking of any musical policemen.

    I thought the singer of short-lived 80s Doc defacers King was a copper, but apparently he only thought about it.

    Ethiopian music was ruled by Police Bands, according to what I remember of the Ethiopiques comps, but I think that may have been a rather special case.

    I will lead the charge with these groovy Abyssinian plods

    There's a LAPD LP that Towny put on one of his Xmas mixes, I'll see if I can do a search and find any info...

    Here you go mate -

    I'm pretty sure you'll dig it, Towny really rated it, he got it out of Card Cabin in Newcastle of all places!

      Mornings when you can't think of any musical policemen are just the worst aren't they? I'd just climb right back into bed, have another couple of hours sleep then wake up and tackle it refreshed.
      Works for me.

          Bugger. I can remember nearly taking a punt on a cheap copy of that years ago.

          I always thought the excellent Pop Cop must have been LAPD, but it turns out he wasn't.

            That might work for you, but I'm like a dog with a bone once I've got musical law enforcement officers on my mind.

              This is my kind of musical law enforcement

                  Dave Dee of Dave Dee, Beaky, Mick, Wotsit, Wingnut, Sneezy & Tich was a Policeman. Legend has it that he was on the scene of Eddie Cochran's fatal car crash and had a go on his guitar.

                    Olympic Gold medal-winning tithead Christopher Dean was part of the snatch squad who "lifted" me and about 100 other punks, mods, skins and "flotsam and jetsam of human society" (to quote the CID officer who phoned my dad) in Nottingham Slab Square in 1980, briefly pushing my street credibility to stratospheric levels.

                        Ah Blue...they were the ones that sang:

                        'System up with the top down,
                        Got the city on lockdown,
                        Drive by in the low ride,
                        Hands high as we Fly By"

                        It all makes sense now. They must've been traffic police.
                        Cheers.

                          what a great photo. They look like they've just busted a bunch of longhairs and are displaying the confiscated goods.
