Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel
Birmingham - Live With Orchestra & Choir (Comeuppance)
Steve Harley has always been a spiky chap, shedding band-mates like sloughed skin and never backwards in coming forwards, perhaps that’s why his career has been such a rollercoaster. But one thing beyond dispute is that The Human Menagerie and The Psychomodo albums are both one hundred percent classic slices of glam/art rock genius so this show, recorded and filmed at the Birmingham Symphony Hall with Orchestra and Choir performing both albums in their entirety promised to be something very special, and it really doesn’t disappoint. If you loved these albums, and you should, then buy this now (and it’s also available on DVD).
