about

Heroes of The Beach were a Sheffield band collective active in 1982, playing just a couple of gigs. These are the only recordings of this line-up, an early rehearsal (rare - since rehearsals rarely occured!) and excerpts from a gig live at The Leadmill New Year's Eve 1982 (sensibly, the venue arranged this as an afternoon event ). Mentioned in Mark Sturdy's excellent biography of Pulp ("Truth & Beauty" Omnibus Press 2003). More HOTB tracks recorded live are featured on the Live at The Hallamshire compilation, elsewhere on Sheffield Tape Archive (also features tracks by Pulp, The Membranes, Bog-Shed and The Blimp)
