Badfinger Surprises 
   by Henry McNulty   Courant Rock Critic 
Say No More by Badfinger --- Radio Records 
 
Washed-up rock bands that make one last, pathetic stab at a comeback are legion. Some people even turn their tale of woe into a kind of sick joke; Donovan's last record was called "Well-known Has-been." (Never heard of it? I'm not surprised.)
 
So when the British group Badfinger came out last week with a new album called "Say No More," the first reaction was an involuntary shudder. The second reaction was an overwhelming feeling of pity - that a once-respectable band could come to this. Badfinger, you may or may not recall, was a Beatle clone group which had exactly four .hits in 1970-1972. The lead singer, Pete Ham, committed suicide in 1975, and two remaining members surfaced a couple of years ago with a middling comeback record that went nowhere.
 
And now the surprise: "Say No More" turns out to be a strong, vibrant, rousing rock-and-roll record with dozens of tasty licks and nary a trace of the old Beatle sound. Guitarist Joey Molland and bassist Tom Evans - the old members - have written all the songs, and lead a tight little quintet. They aren't has-beens, they're hell-raisers.
 
Lively '50s-oriented guitar, owing much to Chuck Berry but hardly a ripoff, starts things off on the record. The song is "I Got You," the vocals are a controlled roar, and the energy is intense. (Short, direct song titles are a hallmark of this punchy LP: "Come On," "Hold On," "No More," etc.) Since Badfinger's roots go back to the mid-'60s and maybe further; there's lots of British Invasion energy here, although New Wave stylings (such as on "Because I Love You") are in evidence too.

Songs like "Because I Love You," with excellent harmonies, and "Crocadillo," a stormy rouser, predominate. But there are ballads too: "Too Hung Up on You" is skillfully assembled and sung with genuine emotion.
 
Only a couple of songs are over-reachers. "No More" has foolish sound effects in the background, sounding like a combination of Flash Gordon and Tarzan. And "Rock 'n' Roll Contract" has a heavy-handed narration intoned over the melody. 
 
Overall, however, "Say No More" is a stirring record, a surprising entry from a band which, by all accounts, should have died six years ago. Badfinger (with Tony Kaye on keyboards, Richard Bryans on drums and Glenn Sherba on guitar) are worth a second look . . . and more than a couple of listenings.

Some old rockers are still kicking 
     by George Kanzler (syndicated by Newhouse News Service) 
 
It's okay for rock superstars to go around singing about how "rock 'n' roll is here to stay," or "rock 'n' roll will never die," but they've all made so much money they probably wouldn't care if it did die. The real commitment to the music comes from the rock 'n' roll survivors, those groups who have been out there for years, paying the bills by producing rock but never achieving superstardom. 
 
Six such groups make up. this album survey a tribute to arid recognition of new albums from rock 'n' roll survivors who began in the 1960s, weathered the 1970s, and are still with us in the 1980s.

This was one of the very first Beatle-clone bands, and they are still remaining true to the Fab Four's early sounds on this, their latest Beatle pastiche album. Not as good as Todd Rundgren's Beatle tribute, or as funny as the Ruttles, Badfinger still manages to preserve the spirit well.
