Ducks Deluxe

If the old scientific adage is true -- that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction -- then British pub rockers Ducks Deluxe were purely and simply a reaction. With the mid-'70s English pop scene dominated by glitter/glam rockers like Gary Glitter and Sweet or blustery, chops-heavy art rockers like Yes, Jethro Tull, and Genesis, then Ducks Deluxe represented none of the above. One of the first pub rock bands, the Ducks played basic American-style blues and boogie with remarkable panache and thorough disregard for the whims of the zeitgeist. They never were hugely popular, but the unpretentious, do-it-yourself, working-class attitude they and their contemporaries exuded (most notably seminal pub rockers Dr. Feelgood) influenced the English punk scene that was right around the corner. With friends like Dave Edmunds producing their records, the Ducks (guitarist/vocalist Sean Tyla, guitarist Martin Belmont, bassist Nick Garvey, and keyboardist Andy McMasters) came up with engaging, though not life-changing, records that celebrated the simple joys of rock & roll. Sure, much of it sounds like recycled Chuck Berry, but there's an infectious enthusiasm that the fan in you, who simply wants to hoist a pint of ale and hear some Little Richard, will love. Ironically, their biggest promotional boost in America, the Ducks Deluxe LP was released three years after they'd split up. This little bit of shift marketing came as a result of ex-Ducks going on to more prominent bands like the Motors, the Rumour, and the Tyla Gang. In 2007, the band reuinited to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their formation by playing some shows around Europe. Reinvigorated by touring, the band released Side Tracks and Smokers, their first full album of new material in over thirty years. ~ John Dougan, Rovi

Just discovered them today. They're awesome!

RIP John Peel - introduced me to some of my favourite music ever and thanks to Pandora, I can listen again (I sold all my vinyl years ago when it became too heavy to carry 1000 LPs around)

a kickass and under appreciated band. i wish there were more contemporary bands who were like these guys...
more like lou reed
sounds like some David Bowie riffs
West Texas Trucking Board is all about Bob Andrews taking the Ducks to a higher level - that of his usual Brinsley Schwarz domicile. Martin Belmont can, in fact, play. Graham Parker's legendary 1976 releases demonstrate the fact. Don't waste a lot of time analyzing the Ducks(or any pub-rockers, for that matter) - just listen and enjoy!
Martin Belmont can sure as hell play guitar, though he doesn't seem to demonstrate anything amazing on the track i am listening to. but rock n roll is supposed to be fun and this band sounds like fun!

I like what I'm hearing but I'm not totally taken. yet. What would some of their better tunes be? And what is the name of the first album that "d"'s talkin about?
they were a much needed break... thanks to these seemingly mediocre musicians (their spirit made the band) pub rock was able to garner some attention, if only for a small amount of time
Get their first album and tell me its not gold!
