Boots for Dancing

Keep trawling back through the annals of pop north of the border, tracing that lineage, and you will eventually encounter the legend that is Boots for Dancing, the punk-funk combo that began life in the capital as a post-pub piece of bravado and rolled through no more that three years of existence with a constantly changing line-up around frontman, vocalist, proto-rapper and mean mover Dave Carson. They left a recorded legacy of just three singles and a trio of sessions for the John Peel radio show. The legendary DJ's crucial support hardly sets Boots for Dancing apart from many other bands in what is now termed the post-punk era of 1979 to 1982, but his assertion that they were one of the few bands whose music was liable to persuade him on to the dancefloor is worth noting.
