We were very saddened to hear of the passing of legendary producer and record label boss Derek Lawrence. He produced huge-selling albums for the likes of Deep Purple, Wishbone Ash, and many others.
Derek was the first person to give Chas & Dave a shot by releasing their debut album “One Fing ‘n’ Annuvver” on the Retreat label he’d set up with guitar ace Big Jim Sullivan, and he had faith in the boys to let them produce the album themselves – something almost unheard of for a label boss to do for a band’s debut album.
Rest In Rock’n’Roll, Del. You and Charlie keep the noise down up there!

Even more surprising than “Wallop” never having an official video made back in the day, is the fact that C&D’s first hit single “Gertcha” didn’t have one either. But the genius of benpics does it again and we’re knocked-out to share the brand new official animated video for the “Gertcha” here
Wallop! – official video

Wallop! – released in 1981, but never had an official video clip…until now. The brand new official animated video by the excellent benpics (Bob Mortimer/Andy Dawson/Athletico Mince) is here, and it’s a corker. Have a look here.

We’re chuffed to hear that not only is the classic kids’ show “Crackerjack” returning to our screens, it also features a rather excellent new version of Chas & Dave’s classic theme tune from the 1980s. The first episode airs on CBBC, 17th of January at 6pm.
