More of London\’s more infamous No. 10. later. Mick Farren. My friend, Gus turned me on to the Deviants and a swelter of Ladbroke Grove\’s finest many years ago. He lived there in the early 70s.
Mick Farren\’s head and heart were definitely in the right place, but Deviation Street sounds remarkably dated listening to it now. \”Eight thousand copies were sold on their own Impressario label via mail order through the UK Underground press, such as Oz and International Times, before being picked up and released by Decca Records.\”
Thanks to Chris for the rip from the shiny Japanese remaster. It sounds so much better than the low-fi copies I\’ve had for quite a while.
