Simon Frith, Let It Rock, May 1973
HE CAME out sheathed in white, like a tape worm. For someone whose primary appeal is physical hes surprisingly clumsy, graceless. Constipated bumps and grinds. Wiggle your bottom at the front row, everyone squeal! Davids so little, so young, that his tight crotched cat suit (red vine curled lovingly round his arse) seemed cosy, a new line in ladybird pyjamas. Plain-voiced, no range of tone or emotion; just sing loud or soft and always too close to the mike so its all distorted anyway. The childrens party show-off. David played piano (elementary), guitar (intermediate) and drums (advanced). He glowed with pride but he seemed uncertain.
