Comment
In the mid '70s (and perhaps before) Rex had a stall or lock up kiosk on Wembley Market where he sold mostly old 45s from the '50s and '60s and reissues and repros of old rockabilly and rock and roll releases. One of his regulars there was the BBC's Doc Cox who around that time shot to fame as Ivor Biggun with 'I'm A Wanker', given on a guest column in NME as record of the week by Johnny Rotten. Cox's love of old rock and roll can be heard in 'I'm A Wanker' with his sly nod to Sun rockabilly legend Warren Smith' "Ubangi Stomp" in the lyrics, "I wanked over Italy, I wanked over Spain". I remember Rex selling a lot of copies of that at Wembley Market, brought to him by Cox, before it went big.
