Duncan Reid & The Big Heads- Difficult Second Album LP. As singer and bass player of Joey Ramone’s favourite band, The Boys, Duncan Reid rode on the first wave crest of punk’s late-1970s heyday as part of a wider collective of friends and peers that included Sex Pistols, The Clash and Generation X. The Boys remain one of the best-loved and influential bands of their generation and alot of that is due in part to Duncan Reid. What many people don’t know is that Duncan Reid has been making waves in many different bands since the Boys began. His newest project is called Duncan Reid & The Big Heads where he’s joined by members of Die Toten Hosen and TV Smith of The Adverts when these songs are played in the club setting. ‘The Difficult Second Album’ is an autobiographical garage-pop soundtrack with energetic, infectious hooks and charming stories from one of Punk’s pioneers. Sugar pop choruses, bubblegum punk hooks, and a slight touch of 60s/70s lighthearted melancholy are arranged in various forms on this record. If you’re a fan of THE BOYS, this one’s pretty much essential. Import from Germany on Wanda Records.
