ROCKY SHARPE AND THE REPLAYS-RAMA LAMA DING DONG

Rocky Sharpe is the pseudonym of an English rock/pop singer who, with Rocky Sharpe and the Replays, first found fame in the late 1970s. The usual line-up of the group was Rocky (real name Robert Podsiadly), Helen Highwater (real name Helen Blizard), Johnny Stud (Rocky's brother Jan) and Eric Rondo (Mike Vernon). An earlier incarnation of the group, Rocky Sharpe and the Razors, featured Den Hegarty and Rita Ray who later formed Darts. It was in 1978 that the group enjoyed their first commercial success with "Rama Lama Ding Dong", covered from The Edsels original hit, which reached number 17 in the UK Singles Chart.[More chart success quickly followed with another single, "Imagination", which reached number 39 in 1979. But after this, success was more difficult to find, and Sharpe was to find greater success on the touring circuit than in the best-sellers charts.
