Biographie

Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel are an English rock band from the early 1970s. Their music covers a range of styles from pop to progressive rock.


Steve Harley (born Stephen Malcolm Ronald Nice, Deptford, London, 27 February 1951), grew up in London’s New Cross area and attended the school Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College. His musical career began in the late 1960s when he was busking (with John Crocker) and performing his own songs, some of which were later recorded by him and the band. The original Cockney Rebel was formed when Harley hooked up with his former folk music partner, John Crocker (fiddle / mandolin / guitar) in 1972. They auditioned drummer Stuart Elliott, bassist Paul Jeffreys, and keyboardist Milton Reame-James. They were signed to EMI after playing just five gigs. Their first single « Sebastian », a soaring rock epic ballad, was an immediate success in Europe, though failed to score in the UK Singles Chart. Their debut album, The Human Menagerie, was released in 1973 to critical acclaim, and is still felt by many fans to be their best.

Harley managed to irritate a significant segment of the music press with his self-aggrandisement, even as the music itself was getting rave reviews and gaining a wide audience. It was becoming clear that Harley regarded the band as little more than accompaniment to his own agenda, and already there were signs that things would not last, despite having a big hit with their second single, « Judy Teen ». There then followed the album The Psychomodo, an adventurous and ambitious production which showed that there was real talent in the group.

    When I was a teenager The only classification was Rock, Blues, Pop, Country, Funk, classiscal ,soul and R & B . You had to find your music from that small amount of tags. Always found stuff that didn't belong in any of those tags . And always found stuff under the wrong tag . So I am grateful for more tags ...Sometimes ... But the people doing the tagging really ought to know what the F@#K they are doing . Unfortunately since LFM has decided that Personal tag and loved track radios are no longer necessary ,People have started becoming very creative ,and trying to get their personal tags to become global .

    All labels and tags are just wicked attempts of the flawed rationale to desperately stuff something that exceeds the limits of its understanding into the familiar coordinate system. Gosh, I could not even conceive this would be SO FUCKING OUTSTANDING!!!!!

    Really wonder about the tagging system sometimes "Their music covers a range of styles from pop to progressive rock, and while they were contemporary with the glam rock period, their music is not truly classifiable as such" then look at the tags. Tagged as GLAM ROCK?! lol still doesn't detract from the fact they're a great band, with a great sound. Who needs labels and tags anyway .. good music is good music regardless of what it's labelled as :)
