One-hit wonders

Love Sculpture

Power trio Love Sculpture, featuring guitarist Dave Edmunds (who would go on to form Rockpile with Nick Lowe), were a one-hit wonder group with a ferociously rockin’ version of Aram Khachaturian’s “Sabre Dance.”

The frenzied number became a top 5 hit in the UK, bolstered by support from revered DJ John Peel, in 1967. File this one with B. Bumble & the Stingers’ “Nut Rocker” (produced by the great Kim Fowley) and Keith Emerson’s ostentatious reworkings of classical pieces in ELP. This kicks ass, totally.
