Jet Bronx & The Forbidden - Ain't Doin' Nothin'

The one and only single from Jet Bronx and the Forbidden, and its a shame because "Ain't Doin' Nothin' is a really catchy song.

One point of note is that Jet Bronx is actually Lloyd Grossman the TV presenter and Chef. He is not only the lead vocalist, but he also wrote the songs and produced them. Not bad.

You will see on the cover that the first 15,000 were in TERRIFIC Red Vinyl, mine clearly wasn't in the first 15,000 as it's in the CRUMMY black vinyl.

Check the price as well -75p - those were the days.

Band: Jet Bronx & The Forbidden
Label: Lightning Records
Year: 1977
Tracks:
1. Ain't Doin' Nothin'
2. I Can't Stand It

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:

I used to own a red vinyl version of this but I swapped it for something which I cant remember. Pretty sure Jet Bronx did have another single after this one but not sure if it was with "The Forbidden" or just as Jet Bronx. Another classic upload mate

Can we have the other Jet Bronx single, Rock N Roll Romance? Nobody seems to have it online. Rumour has it Mr Grossman may be forming a new Forbidden and playing some reunion gigs!
