Shack: The Duchess Of York, Leeds

Dave Simpson, Melody Maker, 8 September 1990

SHACK APPROACH the popular song like a long-lost prodigal, giving it a big hug and a "great to have you back". Formed from the ashes of the sparkling Pale Fountains, they take their place within a Liverpool pop tradition that stretches from the Beatles to the Boo Radleys, forging platinum melodies from hearts of gold.
