Dave Edmunds - Girls Talk


On this date in 1979, Dave Edmunds released his eighteenth single, "Girls Talk". It was backed by "Bad Is Bad". Other versions had "The Creature From The Black Lagoon" as the B side. All three tracks appeared on his fifth album, Repeat When Necessary. The song, which was written by Elvis Costello, reached the #4 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Cardiff, Wales power pop singer teamed with Nick Lowe to form Rockpile and, like the issues with Nick Lowe's releases, he had to release "Rockpile" material under his own name (they were each contractually liable to different companies).
