TYLA GANG - Rockpalast

TYLA GANG Rockpalast (Audimax Hamburg 15.03.1978) 320 kbps
Flashin' in the subway / Styrofoam / The young lords / On the street / Suicide jockey / On your way down / It's gonna rain / Fireball / Don't shift a gear / Hurricane / Whizz kid / Moonlight ambulance / Walkin' the dog / Pool hall punks.

The Ducks split in 1975. Nick Garvey left to form the Motors, Martin Belmont went to join Graham Parker in the Rumour and Sean went on to form the original Tyla Gang. After releasing the single, "Styrofoam" on the Stiff label in late 1976, Sean and the Gang signed with California-based label, Beserkley Records in 1977, releasing two albums: ""Yachtless" and "Moonproof". Beserkley folded in 1979 but thanks to the generosity of Roger Daltrey and The Who, Sean cut his first solo album at the band's Ramport Studios in London. Later that year, he signed a $550,000, five-album deal with Polydor International, had his first Top Ten single in Germany [where he eventually based himself] and continued to enjoy chart successes as a solo artist with both albums and singles, throughout Europe until he retired in 1985.
After a 22-year absence, Sean Tyla finally returned in solo with the album "Back in the saddle" & with the Ducks Deluxe mini album "Box of shorts". A new Tyla Gang enter the studio in July 2009 to begin work on their ‘Silk & Iron’ CD, scheduled for release on Hawkhead Records in in Spring 2010 to coincide with a major European and Scandinavian tour.
What you have here is the Tyla Gang recorded live for the famous german TV show in 1978. This is the complete set of which five songs were available on the Beserkley german-only compilation "Bezerk Times".

Anyone got the UK 7" issue of "Dust On The Needle" they'd like to sell me? I'll pay VERY well.

Merci par avance,

Et "Rhythm of the swing" sera-t-il dans la foulée ? Ainsi que tous ses disques solos des dernières années...
Si oui, un grand merci par avance,

"Rhythm of the swing" est le seul disque de Sean Tyla que je n'aime pas
(il l'a désavoué !): pas facile cette periode allemande pour lui ! Le disque est plein de synthés ce que le bonhomme déteste ! C'était une periode dure : il faut bien gagner sa vie parfois et c'est sa seule erreur discographique!
Je vais réécoouter l'album pour voir ce qu'il en reste aujourd'hui et si ...!

Hi Guys

I am always amazed at the interest in the old stuff I made. Hopefully I will be cutting a new TG CD this Fall in Sweden and the Gang will certainly be on tour there in September 2010. Thanks for all your support.

Luv and Rock,

Sean Tyla
