As singer and bass player of Joey Ramone’s favourite band, The Boys, Duncan Reid 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. The Boys remain one of the best-loved and influential bands of their generation. Fast forward to 2014 and Duncan’s new group The Big Heads, who are powering their way around the globe and astounding audiences from Buenos Aires to Berlin to Dublin and back again. The band has been joined onstage by members of Europe, German mega group Die Toten Hosen and TV Smith of The Adverts. Following a cornucopia of stellar reviews for 1st album Little Big Head, The Big Heads develop their unique, effortlessly entertaining, melodic brand of harmony laden pop punk with new release: “The Difficult Second Album”. 12 tracks dealing with close shaves in Rio, hen parties in London, growing old disgracefully, and hugging, combine to give a unique view of life.
