Delta 5

Initially inspired by the success of local heroes the Mekons and Gang of Four, Leeds, England's Delta 5 later emerged as one of the key figures of the feminist new wave. Formed in 1979 by vocalist/guitarist Julz Sale, fretless bassist Ros Allen, and bassist Bethan Peters, the group was begun on a lark, but following the additions of guitarist Alan Riggs and drummer Kelvin Knight, Delta 5 issued their debut single, "Mind Your Own Business," and found themselves thrust to the forefront of the Leeds post-punk community.

Frequently linked to Gang of Four -- in addition to a similarly abrasive funk sound, Delta 5 was also at the vanguard of the Rock Against Racism movement, and Knight even once sat in for Gang drummer Hugo Burnham -- the group's role as political leaders increased in the wake of a notorious street attack on its members by right-wing thugs, culminating in the rise of the Rock Against Communism groundswell. Their unique two-bass rhythm section set them clearly apart from their peers, and with the success of their second single, "You," they mounted a successful U.S. tour.

Upon leaving Rough Trade to sign with the Charisma subsidiary Pre, in 1981 Delta 5 issued their debut LP, See the Whirl. Despite the inclusion of some of their early single sides, much of the record fell prey to over-production, and was a critical and commercial failure. The group split shortly after its release. Much of the group's output remained hard to come by until the Singles & Sessions compilation was released by Kill Rock Stars in 2006. ~ Jason Ankeny

Thisclise200 2 , y'see, you are the type of dandy pussyfied offspring that were groomed early on in life into passivity and that is why you respond with your tragic slapstick routine that you do.

Socialism... . is that necessarily bad? Compared to unbridled capitalism, is it better or worse?

I love their music but, too bad, they have a socialist ideology.

Super awesome band. I have a station in which I used them as the seed, and now it's mutated into something completely different from the original source, but I still kept the original name, because this was the great artist which led me to end up with my favorite station.
