Pub rock legends DUCKS DELUXE are to have their complete original studio recordings compiled in a new 3-CD set.
Initially formed as a spin-off from freak-rockers HELP YOURSELF, the Ducks built up a reputation as one of the hardest rocking bands on the London pub circuit, releasing two albums for RCA - including the DAVE EDMUNDS-produced Taxi To The Terminal Zone - and earning fans among the future punk scene such as Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of THE CLASH.
Following the band's mid-70s demise, Nick Garvey and Andy McMaster founded THE MOTORS and Martin Belmont joined GRAHAM PARKER & THE RUMOUR, while band frontman Sean Tyla formed THE TYLA GANG, performing at both Mont de Marsan punk festivals.
After decades away from music, Tyla and Belmont reformed the Ducks to the delight of pub rockers young and old in 2007.
Coast To Coast: The Anthology brings together both their RCA albums, plus non-album singles and B-sides, rarities, previously unissued early demos, exclusive compilation appearances, alternative versions, their reunion mini-album Box Of Shorts plus accompanying live recordings. Fully remastered, the set is completed by full sleevenotes and many rare period images.
Set for release through Cherry Red on 29 September, the anthology is available to pre-order here.
Check out 'Coast To Coast' live at The Lord Nelson, Holloway Road.
Sean Tyla's riveting memoir Jumpin' In The Fire is available through Soundcheck Books.
