10cc: St Louis

Paul Yamada, Concert News, July 1984

10 C.C. IS A band with quite a past. The four members have had a lot of experience playing in English pop-rock groups; they are accomplished song writers and sellers; and they understand the importance and utility of solid lead singing combined with harmonizing. Their approach to rock and roll inevitably comes from out of their past, from what they know; however, their wit, satire and sarcasm, which is aimed at many well chosen targets, is sometimes reminiscent of early Zappa.
