MISBEHAVIN' - PUB BAND - 1980'S

I've scoured every page of every issue of Cranked Up looking for a live review or some other article about pub rockers, Misbehavin', but to no avail. They did get a couple of name-checks in the passing, but the band's brand of rock covers didn't invoke anything substantial written about them when they were doing the pub/club circuit in the early 80's.
In the line-up we have - Bill Higgins - Chris Taylor - Nigel Brodie - Pete Sillars - Scott Martin.
Chris Taylor, who was a painter, illustrator & caricaturist, died earlier this year.

  1. They were a cut above the usual covers/clubbie band.
    The stuff they did was sort of post -punk , new wave-ish and they regularly played the Tayside Bar.
    Chris was a great guy, talented, funny and sadly missed.

  2. Here is a quote from Cranked Up when they doing a round up of local bands, marking them all out of 10.
    Misbehavin' - "Unoriginal, even in their choice of covers. 4 out of 10"
    A Fabian Bell assessment.
