Released on 21/09/09. Deaf School were a late 1970s English band from Liverpool. Their style was somewhere in between pub rock, punk, glam rock and art rock. They disbanded after their third album. The journalist, author and founder of ‘Mojo’ Paul Du Noyer described them thus: ” In the whole history of Liverpool music two bands matter most, one is The Beatles and the other is Deaf School. If that seems like a sweeping statement then consider this: after the pop revolution of the 1960s led by The Beatles and other Merseyside groups, it looked as if the city’s music scene had dried up forever. But in 1975 there came a motley band of Liverpool art students called Deaf School. And they were the catalyst for the most dramatic revival since Lazarus. Their impact on the city is with us to this day.”
Their members carried on in music business; singer Bette Bright went solo, Clive Langer became one of the foremost producers of the ’80s/’90s producing Madness, Morrissey, David Bowie, Dexy’s Midnight Runners and Bush amongst others. Steve Lindsey formed the hit band The Planets scoring a Top Of The Pops appearance with his song Lines . Enrico Cadillac (real name: Steve Allen) joined Ian Broudie (former member of Big In Japan) to form the Original Mirrors who released two albums. Allen later formed The Perils Of Plastic with former Attraction’s keyboard player Steve Nieve before going onto a successful pan-European solo career, later taking on the management of Espiritu as well as an A&R post helming WEA UK’s dance-pop imprint Eternal Records from 1993 to 2004.
