Dr. Feelgood - Malpractice (1975)

Dr. Feelgood are a British pub rock band formed in 1971. The band's name derives from a slang term for heroin or for a doctor who is willing to overprescribe drugs. It is also a reference to a 1962 record by the American blues pianist and singer Willie Perryman (also known as "Piano Red") called "Dr Feel-Good", which Perryman recorded under the name of Dr. Feelgood & The Interns. The song was covered by several British beat groups in the 1960s, including Johnny Kidd & The Pirates.
"Malpractice" reached number 17 in the UK Albums Chart in November 1975, and remained in that chart for six weeks. It was their first recording to chart, and appeared almost two years before their first single to do so in the corresponding UK Singles Chart - "Sneakin' Suspicion" (June 1977).
Malpractice saw Dr. Feelgood break into the UK Top 20, the success of the release a gauge of a change in the musical climate. With their drainpipe suits, short hair, and surly demeanour, they were as influential as any at the inception of punk rock.
