Deaf School Perform Taxi and What A Way to End It All, 1977

Deaf School were Liverpool’s main claim to fame in the peculiar era between the end of Merseybeat and the post-punk renaissance led by The Teardrop Explodes and Echo and the Bunnymen. Not as serious as Roxy Music and not quite as smartass as Sparks, but exploring similarly theatrical art/glam/camp territory, they deserve a lot more credit than they ever received at the time.
