Default Steve Harley and ****ney Rebel



Strange that there isn't a thread on this man and his wacky band. Possessing an unusual voice (hauntingly reminiscent of David Bowie) and a finesse for pop hooks, Steve Harley swayed romantically between pop and progressive music. His band, Cockney Rebel was responsible for a few great albums:

The Human Menagerie (1973)
The Psychomodo (1974)
The Best Years of Our Lives (1975)

Any other fans out there?

Obviously 'Come Up And See Me' is the song they are most known for but I have never heard anything else i have to confess. Maybe this should be rectified.

As this band are a bit of a one-hit-wonder, the least to be done is to post their one hit:-

According to AllMusic.com, Steve Harley was "second only to Bowie himself", and this track makes the comparison understandable:-



Also, intriguingly, "no Cockney Rebel single ever featured an electric guitar." I'm tempted to cherry-pick my way through their discography...
