Dan Reed Network and The Theory Of The World

Christine Natanael, Rock Scene, 4 May 1990

MY FIRST exposure to the Dan Reed Network was a memorable one. Although I had heard the debut record and thought it a good shot at the crown held by Mother's Finest, I was totally unexpected for what I found upon walking into the Cat Club on that rainy night. People were literally hanging from the rafters, sweat was dripping from the ceiling, and this little brown-skinned guy and his equally ethnic band had the place groovin' in more directions than a cat dances on a hot tin roof. Amazing.
