Artist: DELTA 5
Title: Singles & Sessions 1979-81
Format: CD
Label: Kill Rock Stars
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
2006 release. "Part of the Leeds/UK art/music scene in the late 70s that launched The Gang of Four and The Mekons, Delta 5 was signed to Rough Trade after only a few months in existence, and released their first single recording, Mind Your Own Business/Now That Youve Gone in 1979. No less an authority than legendary BBC host and producer John Peel received an advance copy of the single and played it twice that same night. He then requested that the band do a Sessions gig for him and the band was officially on its way. Relentless gigging with The Gang of Four, Echo and the Bunnymen, B52s, Specials, Teardrop Explodes, and U2 put the band on the map worldwide. They continued touring and recording until various members departed in late 1981, when they recorded one last single and then broke up for good in 1982." - Kill Rock Stars.
