Tyla Gang, a British pub-rock / new wave band led by ex-Ducks Deluxe member Sean Tyla, released their first double a-side single Styrofoam / Texas Chainsaw Massacre Boogie on the Stiff label in 1976. The bands debut album 'Yachtless was released in 1977 by Beserkley. By then Sean had moved to California. In 1978 the second album Moonproof followed. In the early '80's, three more albums followed on different labels. In 1983 the band broke up.
Sean continued to record in California with former MONKEES member, Mike Nesmith but the hit single “Breakfast In Marin” was scuppered by a court case.
