Be Bop Deluxe were an British prog-rock band and featured at this place various times during the last years. I have to admit that I was impressed by the way Bill Nelson played guitar and his abilities to write songs far away from everything else at these days. They released their first album Axe Victim back in 1974 and it was re-released as an extended version with early demos. The record got critical acclaim but the band never got the reputation they should have. Maybe because their songs were not compatible for masses in the early 70's and they released their music right before punk and New Wave opened our ears for different music. I think Television learned a lot of them.
