On August 21, 1977, the cutting-edge rockers had their self-titled debut album released by Chiswick Records.
He lived fast and died young, but Jimmy was a prodigious guitarist who was making a name when he was barely in his teens.
The man that Pete Townshend called his "aide-de-camp" played important roles in The Who and Motörhead as well as in Thunderclap Newman.
The group’s third album took them beyond the bounds of throwaway chart music and itself became a pop art landmark.
Andy Newman, mulit-instrumentalist for Thunderclap Newman, who released their UK chart-topping hit ‘Something In The Air’ in 1969, had died, aged 73.
Track Records released some of the most groundbreaking music of the late 60s and early 70s. uDiscover celebrates the importance of this iconic imprint.
