The Barracudas

This London-based Anglo-American band, whose members include Jeremy Gluck (vocals), Robin Wills (guitar), David Buckley (bass), and Nick Turner (drums), was formed in 1979 and scored a U.K. chart hit in 1980 with the neo-surf song "Summer Fun." Turner and Buckley left after the release of the first album Drop Out Qith the Barracudas (1981) and were replaced by Jim Dickson and Terry Smith. Chris Wilson also joined on guitar. This quintet made the second and third albums, Meantime and Endeavour to Preserve, which were released only in France. The Barracudas disbanded in December 1984, but re-formed in 1989. ~ William Ruhlmann

the song Pandora is playing is "Gloria" by the 60's Barracudas off the "Plane View Of The Barracudas" album. Not the 80's group. The bio is for the 80's punk group. They just f u c k e d up the bios. That's all.

the band was led by Jeremy Gluck, main songwriter behind the circa 1980's Barracudas.. . a n d one the former members of this band ended up playing with Stiv Bators band, The Lords of The New Church. Drop Out With The Barracudas is a great record, Check out 'I wish it could be 1965 again.'

I thought they sounded amazingly prescient of the punk sound for a 60s band - thanks for the clarificatio n diceypop.

This write-up is about the U.S. '60s Barracudas, not the British late '70's/early '80s Barracudas, and the song that's playing is DEFINITELY the latter band! SHEESH! Hey, Pandora! Hire me to help straighten-o u t some of your facts & pics!

...and I thought they sounded kinda like the Clash (or, the other way around?).

Yeah, before reading the biography, I thought I was listening to Generation X. Pretty good stuff.

Before I read the review I thought they were mid 90's Weazer wannabes, I guess Weazer was Barracudas wannabes... Were they before their time or has the fad just come full circle 40 years later?

I first thought these guys were an early punk band/pub-roc k band. They honest to god sound like a more poppish version of the Ramones.
