Dave Edmunds singing "I Knew the Bride" on Top of the Pops in 1977, it is taken from the 'Get It' album. The song only managed to get to #26 in the UK singles chart.
"I Knew the Bride (When She Used to Rock 'n' Roll)" is a song written by Nick Lowe and first popularized by Dave Edmunds. It was released on Edmunds's 1977 album Get It and a year later in a live version by Nick Lowe's Last Chicken in the Shop on Live Stiffs Live.
Lowe performed the song during a Stiff Records European tour with Elvis Costello, Ian Dury, Wreckless Eric, and Larry Wallis; the tour was filmed for the 1981 documentary If It Ain't Stiff, It Ain't Worth a Fuck. In 1985, Nick Lowe and his Cowboy Outfit recorded a studio version for the album The Rose of England, in a version produced by Huey Lewis, who is featured on harmonica.
