Duncan Reid is famed for his role as singer and bass player of Joey Ramone’s favourite band, The Boys, and rode on the crest of a wave during punk’s original late-1970s heyday as part of a wider collective of friends and peers that included Sex Pistols, The Clash, Generation X and a host of other power-chord pioneers.
Fast forward to to 2014 and Duncan’s new group Duncan Reid and the Big Heads are set to release their second album, entitled The Difficult Second Album on November 17th, which promises to be a unique, effortlessly entertaining, melodic brand of harmony laden pop punk. The twelve featuring tracks deal with close shaves in Rio, hen parties in London, growing old disgracefully, and hugging, combine to give a unique view of life.
The Big Heads feature multi-instrumentalist Alexander Gold, guitarist Sophie Lynch and drummer Ciara Lavers, and together they are powering their way around the globe and astounding audiences from Buenos Aires to Berlin to Dublin and back again. Montevideo, from the Big Heads’ debut album Little Big Head, has earned Duncan the keys to the Uruguayan capital (the only other musicians to achieve this being Elton John and Paul McCartney). The band has been joined onstage by members of Europe, German mega group Die Toten Hosen and TV Smith of The Adverts.
Fred Perry Subculture is delighted to premiere a brand new video from forthcoming album, 'C'est La Vie'. Enjoy!
