Billy Fury – Gonna Type A Letter

A great, neglected slice of early British rock ‘n’ roll from the B-side of Fury’s first single (Maybe Tomorrow) in 1959. While it has much to recommend it – the energy, the simplicity, Fury’s vocal and the proof that Brits could occasionally get rock ‘n’ roll right – the best thing about it is using the typewriter as a percussion instrument: a subtle splash of colour that keeps it interesting without tipping it into novelty.
