About swmpsnake

Back in the middle of the last decade of the last milennium, webpages sometimes listed music the author listened to while HTMLing. In the fall of '95, I was looking for a link to the Sensational Alex Harvey Band and found none, so I had to do something about that. In the course of researching the tribute page I discovered many rare, unreleased and bootleg Harvey tunes. With the backing of the current band, The Sensational Alex Harvey Bandwidth is a way of sharing the unique phenomenon that is the Sensational Alex Harvey - and his band.

Glasgow rocker Alex Harvey's career spanned four decades, from his '50s stint as "Scotland's Tommy Steele" through his solo albums and work with the band from the musical "Hair" in the '60s and on to '70s glam rockers The Sensational Alex Harvey Band and the '80s final two solo offerings. The Sensational Alex Harvey Bandwidth picks from each era and includes Harvey tunes covered by Maggie Bell, Marmillion's Fish, the Party Boys and Zal, to name a few, including today's reformed SAHB.
