So, who are the Scrubbers? Certainly NOT Humble Pie! It all started when Humble Pie were in Olympic Studios, London recording their eighth album. The recording was halted and Steve, disillusioned with Humble Pie, decamped to his home and embarked on his solo album. This is where The Scrubbers was born. Steve Marriott gathered musicians Tim Hinkley & Greg Ridley (the lead trio), augmented with Boz Burrell (King Crimson, Bad Company), Ian Wallace (King Crimson, Bob Dylan), Clem Clemson (Colosseum, Humble Pie) and backing singers, The Blackberries (Vanetta Fields & Clyde King). Various other musicians were involved; Joe Brown, BJ Cole, Jim McCulloch. Over several days they wrote and recorded and finally finished the album. Steve was eager to play the album to A & M Records, so Jerry Moss (co-founder of A & M Records) came down to listen. Steve was devastated as Moss dismissed the recording and announced that, OK, Andrew Oldham has Olympic Studios booked starting next week to continue production of the new Humble Pie album and left! Bizarrely the 16 track, unmixed tapes went missing; Stolen? Confiscated? Purloined? They resurfaced at A & M, where and one track, (badly re-mixed) ended up as the title track of the Humble Pie album, Street Rat. Steve Marriott said, Street Rat was a track with me Ian Wallace and Tim Hinkley, it was nothing to do with Humble Pie!. However, Tim saved the 47-year old 1/4 inch tapes, that he & Steve had mixed, in the original boxes with Steve's hand-written playlists.
