Tyla Gang: Pool Hall Punks: Complete Recordings 1976-1978

13th August 2016 0 By John Deaux

Frontman Sean Tyla is currently celebrating his 70th birthday & for  the first time ever, here are the Tyla Gang’s complete recordings across three discs, including many tracks which appear on CD for the first time. They really are as timeless as an Audrey Hepburn movie.

Housed in a tidy card wallet combo, Pool Hall Punks also boasts an exclusive Q&A interview with Sean Tyla in the enclosed booklet along with, reproductions of many rare images from the period & this set boasts remastered sound quality. To be totally honest it does sound the canines danglies.

There are so many great tracks on this set & one of my favourites is Suicide Jockey. Such a great riff & a stonking toe tapper

The Peel Sessions alone make this an essential purchase. Not only are they on CD for the first time sounding amazing, but it’s a great slice of history & a nod to John Peels amazing ear for spotting talent.

After hearing the Peel sessions, I wish I was able to see the band live. Unfortunately though, I was still fermenting.

Sean Tyla himself is performing several gigs to coincide with this momentous occasion! Keep an eye out for dates & if he’s in a town near you just go & see an absolute legend. It will be a local gig for local people.

Tyla Gang: Pool Hall Punks is pub rock at it’s best & you get a glimpse of how many bands (either consciously or subconsciously) have been influenced by this band.

Score 8/10AATR Approved
