Covers: I Knew the Bride (When She Used to Rock ‘n’ Roll)

Nick Lowe wrote the “I Knew the Bride” but the first and most popular version was by Dave Edmunds in 1977.  Lowe and Edmunds played together in Rockpile which performed a really fast live version in 1980.

Lowe recorded solo versions in 1985 and 2009.  The 2009 one has a good video illustrating the story of the song.
