Daryl Easlea


When Daryl Easlea worked full-time at Record Collectormagazine, his broad tastes and knowledge led to him being deemed a ‘generalist.’ DJ, compere, and consultant to record companies, his books explore his great loves; great pop eccentrics, populist African-American music and prog rock. His first, Everybody Dance: Chic & The Politics Of Disco was published by Helter Skelter in 2004. His second was an extended essay to accompany the Supremes exhibition at the V&A. Talent Is an Asset: the Story of Sparks followed in April 2010, while Without Frontiers: The Life And Music Of Peter Gabriel was published in October 2013, with an updated edition following in March 2018. Easlea is currently deep in writing Whatever Happened To Slade? His work can be found in Record Collector, Prog,Mojo, and in other places, too. Fortnightly, he broadcasts The Daryl Easlea Spectacular on Ship Full Of Bombs – Thames Delta Radio
