Delta 5 were a first wave Post Punk band, hailing from the fertile Leeds scene in 1979. For brief period they challenged Gang of Four as England's finest political Post Punk outfit. However, where Go4 promulgated a populist/socialist and often anti-military ideology, Delta 5 focused largely on feminist issues. The band were prominent figures in the Rock Against Racism movement.
Until recently their work had been out of print and extremely difficult to find. This changed when Kill Rock Stars released a compilation of their singles and sessions recorded between 1979-1981 in 2006.
