Great Britain's Nick Lowe
started his musical career way back in 1967 as a member
of the band Kippington Lodge, and then later Brinsley
Schwarz. By the mid 1970's, after having been a
member of the band Rockpile for a time, Lowe began his
solo career (although in reality he was still
collaborating with the Rockpile members).
Nick Lowe did meet with some success in
the 70's. He charted in the UK in 1978 with the
song "I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass", and in 1979
with the the songs "Crackin' Up" and "Cruel to Be Kind"
Labour of Lust (the song charted at 12 in the
UK, Canada, and the USA). He did not have any huge
chart success in the 80's, although some of you may
remember the song "Teacher Teacher", which was a minor
hit. Another minor hit was "I Knew the Bride (When
She Used to Rock 'n' Roll)" from 1985.
Nick Lowe continued releasing material
well into the 1990's and beyond. He was known to
still be active in the 2010's on stage and in studio.
