Bursting onto the music scene in the 1970s, Chas 'n' Dave released songs that spoke about life in London and used their own accents rather than the fashionable but fake transatlantic twang. They knew that if they wrote and sang about their own experiences that fans would be interested. With hits like "Gertcha," "Rabbit," "The Sideboard Song," and "Margate," they created a sound that was uniquely British and rockin’ to boot. What most people don’t know is that both Chas and Dave had previous careers playing with the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis, nor do fans know the stories about getting caught illegally fishing, getting ripped off by sketchy producers, going crazy while locked in recording studios, playing with the Beatles, and generally having a good time.
