SHAM 69 – HURRY UP, HARRY

SHAM 69 – \”Hurry Up, Harry\” / \”No Entry\” (Polydor POSP 7) October 1978

 I\’ve checked my archives and it\’s just over nine years since I featured Sham 69 on my site so here goes with another entry, this time a record released a few days after my 14th birthday in October, 1978. I can remember it well back then, it was a popular punk singalong number which made the Top 10.

Who doesn\’t like going \”Dahn the pab\” as Jimmy Pursey sang in his Cockney accent. Well, being a kid I hadn\’t even been inside a pub back then but I did play darts and dominoes and they were featured on the front cover of the single so I knew of the delights to behold apart from drinking Real ale by the pint.

\”Hurry Up, Harry\” is a commercial punk tune with over the top vocals and fast and loud guitars. Good solid beat by the drummer and a sure fire hit in 1978. This is what the kids wanted.
