The Directions

by Simon

The Directions were one of the lesser known Mod Revival bands circa 1979/80. They were from Shepherds Bush and featured the Burke brothers, John and Tony and on vocals and guitars respectively. They only released a tiny amount of music and never really came to anything. However Tony Burke, along with the bass and drums went onto become the Big Sound Authority, who might be better known to you. Tony was the main songwriter in The Directions and you can hear the same melodic touch he would bring to BSA later.
