If you've never been to a Deaf School gig...

... the first thing you need to know is that they are quite simply the greatest band you've never seen! If you have seen them, you'll know that already!

Emerging from the Liverpool College of Art as winners of the Melody Maker Rock Contest in 1975, they made three LPs between 1976 and 1978 and were one of the most popular live acts of their time. The fact that they were invited to record three sessions with John Peel at the BBC is testimony to their quality.

Reformed for a legendary series of gigs in 1988 (recorded and released on CD and DVD), Deaf School also played two series of concerts in 2006 and 2007 when they showed how great a live act they still are. They played ten gigs in 2009 and since they have been active every year, including shows in Tokyo in 2011 and 2015.

Much respected music writer Paul du Noyer: "In the whole history of Liverpool music, two bands matter most: one is The Beatles and the other is Deaf School. Their impact on the City is with us to this day."
