REMASTERED STEREO SOUNDTRACK CD
ROCKPALAST is a legendary ‘live’ music TV show hosted in Germany by the WDR channel. It first broadcast in 1974 and has become a pan-European television institution. It has its own fan club and online forum, and in almost four decades, it has become a trademark of quality viewing and listening.
PERFORMANCE DATE: Audimax, Hamburg, Germany, 15th March, 1978
A 14-song set from the New Wave band formed by ex-Ducks Deluxe leader Sean Tyla after his pub-rock pioneers split.
The show features Sean Tyla - Lead vocals/Guitar, Bruce Irvine - Lead guitar, Michael Desmarais - Drums/ b.vocals and Brian ‘Kid’ Turrington - Bass/b.vocals.
Highlights include the Stiff Records single ‘Styrofoam’ and Ducks Deluxe classic ‘Fireball’, together with new material recorded for Beserkley Records – notably from their current album at the time, ’Moonproof’.
Sean Tyla is still active with a Tyla Gang line-up that includes Bruce Irvine on lead guitar and ex-Winkie Mike Desmarais on drums.
Tyla Gang will tour mainland Europe in October/November 2014. They were extremely popular in both France and Germany throughout the Seventies, and they have not played in those territories for over 35 years, so this will be a much awaited tour.
Informative booklet with liner notes by Will Birch, noted British journalist, broadcaster, author and expert on the Pub Rock and the ‘Southend Rock’ scene. Incudes new quotes from Sean Tyla.
Expertly restored and remastered. Superb vision, outstanding sound. The best in the business!
