Biography

There are at least two groups called Duck Soup.

1. Duck Soup is a danish ska band. They play 2 tone ska, and are clearly inspired by bands as the Specials, The Selecter and The (English) Beat. The band kicked off back in 1982, during the punk- and mod revival movement in Denmark. The band broke up in 1984, but decided to reestablish it again 9 years after. Since then they have played a loadful of concerts, released one full-length album (Planet Ska, 1998) and starred on a couple of compilations as well. The band is still playing live, and a new album is said to be on it’s way.

Duck Soup was founded in September 1981 as a union of artists from various underground Copenhagen punk bands - all tired of the total lack of joy and elegance in punk music. Soon Duck Soup became an important catalyzing live band of the different youth cultures of central Copenhagen. In the late 70’s Punks, Mods, Skins and New-Wavers gathered on Gammeltorv - a medieval Copenhagen square. They had no other place to meet, and to avoid the increasing conflicts between the youngsters and the authorities the lord mayor of Copenhagen gave them “Ungdomshuset” - an abandoned trade union dancehall - where they could built up a place of their own. On the opening night in 1982 Duck Soup were playing a legendary concert that lasted for more than 3 hours. From that moment Duck Soup were synonymous with youth and underground and Duck Soup played more than 30 concerts through out the next couple of years - mostly at “Ungdomshuset” and ”Statens HF” a place which parties staged upcoming bands like D.
