Belmont's blistering guitar stands out as best of pub era.

"Ducks Deluxe 1st lp was a mid-seventies favorite. "Coast to coast" cooks from start to finish. "Fireball" is quite melodic, while retaining a raunchy edge. G.P. & the Rumour fans, you have to hear this recording!"
Forgotten rock n roll classic

"Too bad this group is totally unknown, because this (OK, these) albums(s) is one of the coolest that I've ever heard. Especially the first album is so full of great rock n roll songs, that I sometimes think it's even better than anything by the Stones. Great songwriting, cool vocals, raunchy guitar and unlimited energy, even some soulful ballads, this has everything. If you like fifties rock n roll, the Stones, sixties soul, country, Dylan, proto-punk groups like MC5 etc, buy this album. You're not gonna regret it."
Don't Mind Rockin' When It's This Great!

"Sean Tyla is yet another unjustly overlooked British singer-songwriter with a love for fifties/sixties rock/doo wop. Whether with Ducks Deluxe, The Tyla Gang or on his own, his everyman voice and his savvy choice of musicians gave each and every project he worked on a gritty, no-foolin' around feel that'll appeal instantly to Dire Straits/mid-seventies-Clapton fans. Mau Mau/Demon U.K.'s superb reissue teams up the band's only two albums (the first was released in North America but Taxi To The Terminal Zone wasn't) on a great disc. And Amazon makes it available for a mere pittance! This is great rock and roll with its heart and soul in the right place. Key tracks include "Don't Mind Rockin' Tonite" and "Fireball". Motors fans may wish to check this one out, too, thanks to shared members. Honest, balls-to-the-walls rock that hasn't aged a bit since I first heard it back in the mid-seventies!"
