The Sharks - Sophistication, taken
off their second and final album,
"Jab it in your eye", released in
1974. The Sharks were an extremely
competent short-lived UK outfit
put together by Free bassist, Andy
Fraser, Nucleus guitarist Chris
Spedding, vocalist Snips and
drummer Marty Simon ( Eno ).
Fraser left after the band's first
album and was replaced by Busta
Cherry Jones ( Chris Jagger ), and
they were joined by keyboard
player Nick Judd for this second
and final album. Their music,
oddly enough, reminds one a bit of
Free, and it's a pity that they
didn't go on to greater things.
Fraser went on to work under his
own name, as did Spedding, who
revived The Sharks in the late
nineties. A third album was
released in 1998.
