HECTOR - Demolition - The Wired up world of Hector LP Color Vinyl
Die cut Sleeve and Poster. Color Vinyl.
Never-before-heard unreleased Junkshop Glam gold dust from the genre’s
No.1 band. Portsmouth’s Hector are widely regarded as the very best of
the Junkshop Glam Rock bands introduced to us in the early 2000s by the
RPM’s lipsmackin 70’s CD series. Recently discovered archive analogue
tape recordings found in the attic of frontman Phil Brown form this
unique LP. The band’s original DJM singles together with “Demolition”,
an unreleased third single, join forces with outtakes, demos, live and
rehearsal recordings to make this release an unmissable opportunity for
glam rock fans worldwide to hear more from the band whose anthem “Wired
Up” has been adopted as a battle cry by a new audience of fans with
books, fanzines, radio shows and club nights proudly named after it.
Hector’s “Wired Up” was released in 1973. It had all the ingredients of a
hit single. It should have topped the charts and launched a spectacular
career for the band. In a fair world, the name “Hector” would be
mentioned alongside bands like Sweet and Slade. Unfortunately, timing
and luck weren’t on their side. The product was there, the press
coverage was there, the Radio 1 airplay (which was everything back then)
wasn’t and the kids that did hear it must have been deaf, dumb and
blind. The plug was finally pulled in 1975 after their second single
“Bye Bye Bad Days”, another poky punch of proto punk dressed up in a
velvet glove, also failed to become a heavy-hitter. “Demolition – The
Wired Up World Of Hector” is not a phoenix from the ashes. It is Pompey*
from Pompeii. Tunes from the ruins. Glamour in amber; perfectly
preserved. A second chance to make a first impression. Hector are back!
