The late seventies Leeds based band were one of the key post punk groups whose influence has grown over the years. With a then groundbreaking male/female line up and two lead basses, the band created a thrilling, jerky post punk dirty disco and intense sound that we can confirm was brilliant live. What was then considered underground would now be embraced as pop and the band’s influence has been enduring. After the band, Julz remained on the front line working at Rough Trade.
Their late drummer, Kelvin Knight, wrote a great piece for Louder Than War about the band here
An interesting article on how a Delta 5 song ended up on an iPhone advert can be found here.
RIP Julz. Let’s remember her this way…
