Summary
Liverpool gave the world the Beatles. What city could hope to follow that? But 12 years later, in 1974, lightning nearly struck twice. Deaf School were a band formed in John Lennon's old art college, playing a chaotic and wildly entertaining brand of rock cabaret. They were tipped for instant stardom and signed by by Warner Brothers. Then suddenly, with the world at their feet, Deaf School were swept aside by Britain's punk rock revolution. 'A great band,' said the Sex Pistols' manager Malcolm Mclaren. 'But it's just as bad being too early as too late.' Though their hopes were dashed the band has never surrendered. And 40 years on, Deaf School's influence is acknowledged by British bands from Madness to Dexy's Midnight Runners. Their reunion shows, still madly glamorous and eccentric, are tribal gatherings for a fanbase that never forgot them. The band's first full length biography is written by Paul Du Noyer, a follower since Deaf School's early days in Liverpool. 'Deaf School are a delicious secret', he says. 'It's almost a shame to reveal it.' -- Publisher's description
