A lost gem,
This review is from: Taxi To The Terminal Zone (Audio CD)
Young people won't remember when the only bands you could see played in concert halls or vast audatoria; it was no fun. Ducks Deluxe were one of the pub rock bands of the early mid seventies that laid the foundations of punk. Oooh, and what solid rockin' foundations they are! They were the first band I ever saw in a pub, and I still thrill at the memory - dirty, lowdown, and just the kind of thing your mum wouldn't approve of. Thats the first album. The second album is a doozy too, but poppier; two of the members went on to found The Motors. And the guitarist joined Graham Parker and the Rumour. This stuff still stands up, and deserves recognition. These guys kept us seventies types sane, while we waited for The Clash to come along!
