The Delta Of Venus: Delta 5

Phil Sutcliffe, Sounds, 2 August 1980

"DEL-TA-5! DEL-TA-5!" is good to chant. It feels as good as "Up-Starts! Up-starts!" or "A-C-D-C! A-C-D-C!" What might surprise you is that Delta 5 — Rough Trade artsy-feminist Leedsites is the word about them after all — are a band who can shake up such a head of bubbles that a crowd blows its top and there's foam all over the place.
