Dr Feelgood's Canvey (and surrounding areas!) Pt 3 of 3

Here's the third and final part of my Dr Feelgood project........
(Part 1 here and Part 2 here)

The band were keen to record a new album post-Wilko. It was written and recorded in double quick time, and amazingly, released just 4 months after Sneakin' Suspicion.

Dr Feelgoods 5th Album: Be Seeing You is released in September 1977. Once again it is a Canvey location featured on the cover, the lads in the 'public bar' of their regular local The Admiral Jellicoe (love that 'Worthington E' pump light\sign, just on Lee's right shoulder!).

(Be Seeing You - In the Public bar of the Admiral Jellicoe - 1977)

(The Admiral Jellicoe 1930's/1940's)

Built in the 1930's, The Admiral Jellicoe was the only hotel on Canvey where you could still get a room during the second World War (this continued to be the case for some time after the war too). During the war, the owner of the Jellicoe used to let local troops come in and have a bath.

(The Admiral Jellicoe - June 2010)

(Dr Feelgood pose for a photo outside the Admiral Jellicoe - Circa 1977)

(The same spot - July 2010)

To promote 'Be Seeing You' the Feelgoods returned once more to Canvey's Labworth Cafe. They had already taken a series of iconic shots here a few years earlier with Wilko, so perhaps the return marked the final handing over of the baton.... For this shoot, the lads donned Prisoner style jackets (the title of the album had been lifted from a phrase used in the cult TV show).

(Dr Feelgood outside the Labworth - 1977)

Dr Feelgoods 6th Album: Private Practice is released in September 1978. This is the album containing 'Milk and Alcohol', the first song I ever actually heard by the band. From here on, the local references become a little harder to spot... nothing Essex related here:

And as the back cover picture has been taken in Harley Street, there doesn't seem to be any local connections there either.... but hold on, isn't that a 'Steves' cab that the boys have just stumbled out of??!

Yes, Steve's cabs were the big taxi company on the island in the 70's, and after my recent visits, I'm delighted to say it appears they still are (although I'm pleased to say that it looks like the fleet has been updated a bit!) .

And the '4433' phone number shown in the Feelgood picture is still part of their number today!

To launch this album, the record company were keen on a big bash in London, but the Feelgoods were having none of it! They insisted that the album launch party would be held at their local, the Admiral Jellicoe, and they got their way too! I wonder what all those record industry execs and music journos made of their evening in Canvey complete with strippers playing topless snooker!

(Lee playing snooker with a couple of chums at the Private Practice launch party in the Admiral Jellicoe! - 1978)

Dr Feelgoods 7th Album: As It Happens is released in June 1979, and is the bands second live album. As with their first live album (Stupidity), each side is taken from a different gig. Side 1 comes from The Pavilion in Hemel Hempstead, where as Side 2 comes from Crocs, just up the road in Rayleigh. Nowhere on the sleeve (or inner sleeve) does it mention where the live photos used on the sleeve were taken, but I guess there is always a chance that one (or more) of them was taken at Crocs.
Crocs was 'the' alternative nightclub in these parts, but the name changed to The Pink Toothbrush in the early-to-mid 80's. Some legendary shows have taken place here, Depeche Mode were almost the resident band for a while, Soft Cell played one of their first shows here, and Culture Club played their first ever gig here. This will always remain the club I frequented the most in my life, and I was a regular here from the early 80's right up to the early/mid 90's. Some of my best friends today I met at this place (including Mondo!). It was a life-saver to those of us who had no interest in going to regular 'casual' nightclubs like 'TOTS' and similar. As well as almost every Saturday night, I would often be here during the week for the odd gig or two as well. It's still going today, but seems a shadow of its former self. The gigs fell by the wayside years ago, but I think it's still popular with the indie 'yoof' at the weekends.

Oh, and why was it called Crocs I hear you say? Because there was a small glass tank in the corner of the club containing TWO live crocodiles in it! Seriously! (I only ever remember there being one though) Can you imagine getting away with that today??!

(The Pink Toothbrush - July 2010)

Dr Feelgoods 8th Album: Let It Roll is released in September 1979, just 3 months after the live album. Once again it's the back cover that provides the local link, as this photo was taken in the bar of Feelgood House #2! The photo on the shelf between Lee and Gypie is actually the below picture of Chris, Sparko and Lee (the three on the right in the back row) when they were the Razzamatazz Washboard Band:

As for the Toby jugs, well Lee had become something of a collector over the years, and these 4 were specially commissioned to represent each member of the current line up of the band. They still exist, and even feature in the Oil City Confidential movie, along with a hastily made addition of a Wilko Toby! (I understand Chris keeps the originals in his office).

This album closes the 70's for Dr Feelgood. There are two more albums in the early 80's for this line up - (9th album A Case Of The Shakes and 10th album On The Job), before Gypie leaves, replaced by yet another John - Johnny Guitar! There is one more album (their 11th - Fast Women and Slow Horses), before the departure of both The Big Figure and Sparko, leaving Lee as the sole original member.

From here on in there was a somewhat flexible line up for the next decade or so, and with a number of the new members not being from the surrounding area, it inevitably removed the local connection from the Feelgoods somewhat. Even Lee eventually left good old Canvey Island in the early 80's for a move 'up the hill' to Leigh-on-Sea (my home town). He moved into a modest property just off of the High Road, which he cheekily referred to as 'The Proceeds'! This house was walking distance to a number of local watering holes, and Lee became a regular in the The Grand in Leigh High Road, as well as The Crooked Billet in Old Leigh.

(The Grand, Leigh-on-Sea - July 2010)

Not quite my 'local', but The Grand was certainly my regular pub for a number of years too. Many a brain cell was lost in here on a Friday night with E.F Rice, The Brownster, Marmite Boy and others. This was a huge pub, with three separate rooms\bar inside. Each bar was for different clientele. The left hand side was the biggest bar, and ran the whole length of the pub. This was the trendy\youngster bar. The 'front bar' on the right hand side was a middle aged bar. The 'back bar' (also known as the Piano bar) was for the old boys with their half of stout! We migrated fairly early from the youngsters bar straight to the back bar, because we soon worked out that you got served about 20 minutes quicker in there! (plus we were never very trendy anyway!). Alas, this pub was mothballed a couple of years back, and is likely to become a block of flats in the near future (sigh).

Almost all of the clips of Lee Brilleaux talking in Oil City Confidential were taken from an interview filmed in the 'back bar' of The Grand in the early 1990s (you can just see the 'front bar' behind him). The whole 50 minute interview is also on the DVD as an extra.

In 1988, Lee and Chris started their own record label, the name 'Grand Records' was chosen in honour of this very place. Over the years Grand Records have obtained the rights for all of the Dr Feelgood albums released for various labels, and is now a 'one-stop-shop' to pick up all the back catalogue.

(The Crooked Billet, Old Leigh - July 2010)

When Chris Fenwick finally left Feelgood House #2, he moved Dr Feelgood HQ to the office above this bookies in Canvey High Street:

(Feelgood Office Number 3! - June 2010)

I think I'd be right in saying that the Feelgood Corp. still owns this whole parade of shops.

In the early 1990's Lee became unwell, and was eventually diagnosed with cancer. Dr Feelgood were put on hold whilst he went through an agonising course of chemotherapy. During this time Chris Fenwick's brother (who was a builder like their father) had acquired the Oysterfleet pub (a venue that those jug bands used to play at back in the 1960s!).

(The original Oysterfleet pub is that house on the left hand side of this picture from 1920.)

The Oysterfleet pub was originally a private house located on Oysterfleet farm. It's unclear when it was converted into a public house, but likely to have been in the early 1900's.

By the 1990's this building was on its last legs, but was still licenced, so Chris was asked to temporarily take it over whilst his brother decided what to do with it. With help of ex-Feelgood Sparko, they turned it into the Dr Feelgood Music Bar, which opened in late 1993 - with live music most nights.

Lee finished his treatment, and for a while things seemed to be looking positive. As well as his favourite haunts in Leigh-on-Sea, he also became a regular at the Feelgood bar too. Alas, the optimism was short lived, and the cancer returned. Not prepared to go through chemo again, there really was only one outcome. Although very unwell, Lee asked Chris if he could play a couple of gigs at the bar. These were duly arranged, and on the 24th and 25th January 1994, Lee performed what would be his swansong with the Feelgoods. The shows were recorded for posterity at Lee's request.

A little over two months later Lee died, passing away at home on 7th April, aged just 41. His funeral was held on the 15th April at St Clements church in Leigh-on-Sea.

(St Clements Church, Leigh-on-Sea - July 2010)

To celebrate what would have been Lee's 42nd birthday, a live album taken from the January shows was released:

Dr Feelgoods 19th Album: Down At The Doctors was released in May 1994.


The cover shot, taken outside the Feelgood Music Bar, is a cheeky homage to the Sneakin' Suspicion cover. It's quite shocking to see how unwell Lee looks in the picture.

In July 1994, the always temporary Dr Feelgood Music Bar was pulled down to make way for a much bigger and grander replacement Oysterfleet. Chris still remains involved with the management of this establishment. In the mid-2000's he moved the office of Dr Feelgood here too.
(The Oysterfleet - July 2010)

There's a nice blue plaque at the entrence, to inform all visitors that one Mr Lee Brilleaux played here in 1994.


The launch of the Oil City Confidential DVD was held here (21st July 2010), and Chris Fenwick and Wilko Johnson were on hand to sign copies for the gathered crowd.

In the mid 1990's a memorial bench for Lee was unveiled in Leigh-on-Sea (walking distance from 'The Proceeds'), overlooking the Thames Estuary
(Lee's memorial bench, Leigh-on-Sea - July 2010)

It's the perfect position, and incredibly, of all the benches placed in this area, Lee's is the only one that provides a full, un-interupted view of dear old Canvey Island.

(The view from Lee's memorial bench - July 2010)

(Piley takes a rest after being on the Feelgood trail for two months!)

Lee's final wish was that Dr Feelgood continued, and in 1995, Chris Fenwick started the unenviable task of trying to fulfil that request. Incredibly he did it, and in 1996, what was Lee's last line-up of the Feelgoods went public with a new lead singer, Pete Gage. In 1999 Gage left, and was replaced by Robert Kane, who remains on lead vocals to this day. As Dr Feelgood move into their 5th decade, the band are as busy as ever, and amazingly still push around the 250 gigs a year mark, the benchmark set by Lee and Co back in the 1970s.



There, I've finally made it! Thanks for sticking with it. Thanks also to Chris Fenwick who was very kind in helping me with a few hard to find locations, and by no means least, thanks to Lee, Wilko, Sparko, The Big Figure, Gypie and all the following Feelgoods for providing us with nearly half a century of incredible music.

Here's a few videos from the period covered above to finish off with....

A truly scorching live appearance from 1977 on the BBC's 'Sight and Sound', where they perform 'Looking Back', 'Stupidity' and 'You'll Be Mine'.


Lights Out (1977)



She's A Wind Up (1977)


Milk and Alcohol (1979 - alas the soundtrack has come away from the video slightly, I don't think Lee was THIS bad at miming!)

Great stuff Piley. I have really enjoyed reading this and I have learnt some stuff about my local area too.

Meet you down by the jetty mate.

John Medd said...

Pretty comprehensive stuff Piley - a cracking story. When I come down to the Delta can you lay on some topless snooker?! Failing that, I'll settle for my photo being taken in front of The Labworth: that's an iconic building if ever I saw one.

Piley said...

Thanks Marmite, glad it hit the spot for you!

JM - I'd be delighted to organise that for you... It'll be me and Mondo providing it tho ;-)

Just Jacqui said...

A 'flippin crackin' 3 parter P, brilliant stuff. Especially enjoyed all the before and after photos.
I think you have set quite a few people off on a Feelgood trip, including myself AND my daughter!
The DVD is well, well worth a watch.

Piley said...

JJ - Brilliant! I'm really chuffed that both you and your daughter have found yourself investigating the band as a result.... there is certainly plenty of back cat to keep you quiet for a long time!!!

Glad you enjoyed the film too.

Julian said...

Nice job Piley! You are a true fan. I took the liberty of posting a link on the Dr Feelgood facebook page, so I hope you get some traffic. Your history lesson makes for a brilliant read. I am finally going on my Canvey Island pilgrimage next May for the Lee Brilleaux Memorial. Seeing all the photos you took of the landmarks makes the trip all the more worthwhile and interesting as I will be sure to follow in your footsteps.
Thanks!

Ishouldbeworking said...

Excellent, entertaining writing and loving research. Thank you so much. I just have to take issue with one tiny detail - Culture Club's first ever gig wasn't at Crocs but at the Regency in Chadwell Heath. I was there!

I shall be extending my Feelgood collection from here in.

Mark Beasley said...

Excellent work Piley, one for all us Feelgood anoraks. For those inspired by all this good stuff who don't live in the area, book yourself onto one of the Feelgood weekends run by Chris Fenwick (see www.drfeelgood.org - 5th item down on the home page). A cracking weekend! The next ones aren't till March though...in the meantime, read about the last Feelgood weekend at my blog http://markbeasley.blog.co.uk or watch the Oil City Confidential dvd. Once again, well done Piley.

Ahhh the Pink Toothbrush , i met my wife there and we are still together 23 years later. The Grand was my pub for years and years too. Good stuff P a great local area and local band story. Oh and i never got why the band carried on with out Brilleaux , he WAS Dr Feelgood !!!!.

Carl.

Piley said...

Julian - Many thanks for stopping by, much appreciated. Have never done the guided tour, as being local(ish) it feels a bit weird! But may well have to have a go next year, so may see you there! I'm sure it's worth it just to hear the stories Chris comes out with!

Thanks ISBW.... oh yes, the Regency in Chadwell Heath, their second ever gig, yes I remember... ;-) Funny enough, I remember when you reviewed the Boy George Docu-drama the other month, and you mentioned that. First thing I thought was "nah, it was Crocs"! Even when you Google it you get both answers, but they used to lie about so much at Crocs\Toothbrush about gigs, that I'm sure they started the rumour! I'm happy to settle for 'very early'!

Hi Mark - Thanks for taking the trouble to comment, it makes it all worth while. Delighted you enjoyed it. Thanks for adding the links, enjoyed your review of the Feelgood weekend, sounds like a great time.

Carl - Cheers chap, yes I used to bump into you at both venues on a regular basis (and you were always p!ssed!). I can sort of understand why the band are still going, and there is obviously still a demand for them. They say that it's keeping those songs alive for others to discover... But I know what you mean.

Furtheron said...

Great series mate.

Malpractice was the one for me - I bought it on cassette in Barnaby Records in Gillingham High Street. We saw them on that tour at Central Theatre in Chatham with Wilko in stunning form - that ball of energy on the "spring" of his curly lead just ripping the place up with his black Tele.

Never the same for me after Wilko let - although I bought Private Practice I know I did.

Great band - good stuff.

John Devlin said...

What a great read Piley - your best post yet IMO. Despite my eclectic musical tastes, much to my shame I was never into the band until I saw Oil City Confidential. I was very aware of them though and remember Lee's death covered extensively in the Echo at the time but I guess they always seemed so old-fashioned. After seeing the film though I was knocked out at a) how good the tunes were and b) how much energy and passion they played with.

I sometimes feel us Rayleigh/Southend/Leigh natives don't have much to claim as our own music-wise but the Feelgoods certainly fit the bill as one of our greatest.

Excellent stuff Piley!

Piley said...

Malpractice is a cracker F-Ron, been giving that a good old play lately. Very envious of you seeing the Wilko line up live. Wow! Even on DVD it oozes the most incredible energy - I can't imagine what it must have been like 'in the flesh'.

Bless you John, you are very kind. I know exactly what you mean though. I think when you are young there is a tendency to view anything 'before your time' as old and rubbish. Not till you get older that you can really appreciate this sort of stuff, and more importantly, how it's influenced the stuff you did like at the time.

The 'energy and passion' thing is something that constantly seems to blow people away. If you've not seen it, pick up the 'Going Back Home' DVD (live from the Kursaal), which comes with an audio CD of the whole gig. Only 6.99 on Amazon. The DVD is only about 30 mins long (it's all the footage that remains) but is the most amazing live DVD I've ever seen!

Heff said...

Is that SMART putting out albums THAT close together ?!?? Seems bad for business.

Put one out, tour on it, let it sell awhile, etc., is the way I've always assumed was best.

OOOH - TITTIES !!!!

phsend said...

A good point about in pre internet days you could only got your band info from Smash Hits, Nme & Sounds, although fanzines were good too. The Railway was featured in Britains toughest pubs, probably best its gone! I did a mini Feelgood tour a few years ago too, visited The Lobster Smack, the canvey sea wall,The Labworth Cafe and that pub at the bottom of Essex Way. Stunning dedicated research Ian, linking Feelgood and local history into a great read even for the neutral! Professionalism like that really raises the bar for bloggers everywhere!

Piley said...

Heff - Dunno if it was smart or not, but I guess it's kind awkward releasing an album containing band member who are no longer in the band! You can't really promote it, so they cracked on a pushed out another with the new line up. People bought it, so yeah, double money!!! That's smart!!

Thanks PH, glad you enjoyed it, you are too kind. So when's the PHSend blog going live then??! I can't wait for it.

P

Mondo said...

Top stuff P, never knew Lee was a regular at The Grand, if the trendy bar was too busy I always ducked into the back bar instead.

So glad his bench is still there - I heard it had been removed through vandalism.

The really has been an incredible run of posts - top work matey..

Any Plans for a Talk Talk trail as they're Leigh, Hadleigh connected?

Piley said...

Thanks Mondo. I think his bench was vandalised, not long after it was first put there. I think it was taken away and this is a replacement. Did you know he has another memorial bench in Jackson Square Park in New York??

Not sure about that 'Talk Talk Walk' (like the name though!)... Leave that one for Planet Mondo perhaps??!

Nazz Nomad said...

wow.

Rob Beddington said...

Hi Piley

A quick message - I run the Feelgood page on Facebook (as well as a few others :-)

Just to say your Feelgood history parts 1-3 are absolutely fantastic! A true labour of love - and I learnt a bit too. I had a similar pilgrimage back to Canvey last month and was there at the Wilko signing too. Did a tour of the pubs and sights - I was last there almost 30 years ago.

BTW I'm the proud owner of three of the Toby Jugs - just missing Sparko. If you ever hear of any spare I'm interested!

Brilliant stuff - Rob

Piley said...

Nazz - Thanks!

Rob - Thanks a million for stopping by, I appreciate your kind words. Will be sure to let you know if a Sparko Toby Jug ever comes my way!

Great post Piley. I am from Canvey and used to go to the old oysterfleet around 1977.Wierd place but fantasticly atmospheric. I also went in the Feelgood bar music bar.Canvey always was and still are immensly proud of the Feelgoods.For me the original line up takes some beating.

all the best Andy Yeo
