The Police : Fall Out

On January 12, 1977 jazz/ rock bassist Sting moved to London. On the very same day, he sought out Stewart Copeleand, a drummer he met in Newcastle Upon Tyne when Copeland's Curved Air played there.
With guitarist Henry Padovani, they formed a punk band called The Police. One month later they would enter Pathway Studios to record Copeland's single "Fall Out".

"This was one of the first songs Stewart played me. What they [the songs] lacked in sophistication they made up for in energy. I just went along with them and sang them as hard as I could. No, it wasn't false punk. I mean what's a real punk? Our first record was entirely a tribute to Stewart's energy and focus. The band wouldn't have happened without him."
