Harry May

Album: Suburban Rebels (1983)
  • Although it was not their first vinyl output, "Harry May" was the band's first single. Backed by "The Employers Blacklist," the group composition was produced by Ronnie Rouman and released on the Secret label.

    In a 1981 interview with New Mania, which included guitarist Steve Kent, Harry May was identified as a "well-known south London celibrity and 'Robin Hood,' in no way a villan, contrary to rumours spread by the Metropolitan Police." [The foregoing quote is verbatim].
  • According to the Discogs online database, it was recorded at Matrix Studios in Central London. It was reissued on the Visionary Vinyl label in 2006 and on the Ugly Pop Records label (Canada) in 2013. >>
