Re: The Reaction


Further to my original thread about the Reaction, I have finally managed to track down someone who has the demo tape, which they kindly converted to cd for me. Interestingly,the versions of Make up your mind and 4X4 which were the a and b sides of the single are different to the versions on the tape.

Re: The Reaction


talking about the REACTION, just thought i'd let you know that I am selling one of my more esoteric mod revival 45s...

The Reaction demo, on Island in 78. They were a proto mod band and the record is pretty rare

here's a link

any one else got it?? or remember them, apparently they became Talk Talk, which explains an odd thing that happened in the mid 90s

I had planned a benefit album for Ronnie Lane who I had spoken to about the small faces book I published. he was in a bad way and so I wanted to do a benefit album for him. The take up was brilliant - from oasis and Weller, to Gene, Primal Scream, Blur, OCS, Mother Earth, Buzzcocks and M People (who had a number one with the track they originally did for the album)...anyway, for one reason or another the project didnt happen(although a few of the tracks did come out later on a version of the album for Ronnie)...anyway, one of the first bands to get in touch about doing a track was Talk Talk. I thought it was a bit odd at the time, but now it makes sense...

anyone ever see them?

Re: The Reaction


Can't remember seeing them but might have done. They possibly supported Eddie and The Hot Rods

Mark Hollis was the lead singer and his brother twiddled the knobs (!) for Eddie and both bands were signed to Island so it's probable.

Mark later formed Talk Talk, taking their name from an old Reaction number Talk Talk Talk and re recording it as their first single.

He has a very Steve Marriot look on the single and looked pretty 60s in Talk Talk
