When, in 1978, punkwagon-jumpers The Depressions jumped off after one LP and some kicky if not life-changing singles, like "Messing With your Heart" they scrambled aboard The Next Big Thing, power-pop and re-named themselves The DP's.
While it's The Depressions' album that was re-issued by Captain Oi (now out-of-print), the DP's album, If You Know What I Mean might be the better of the two albums, if just because the band, former members of a Who/Small Faces cover band, seem more comfortable using their power chords for pop rather than punk.
For an informed and witty overview of the The Depressions metamorphosis into the DP's visit the invaluable Worthless Trash.
Let us know you think of The Depressions/The DP's in the COMMENTS section (which is where you'll find the If You Know What I Mean link).
