Midnight Hour were a west London mod-revival outfit formed in 1979. They were the hybrid of three other bands. Drummer Keith Lane had been an original member of The Scooters, London's first mod-revival band formed in 1978. Bassist Pete Branscombe and keyboard player Simon Roe had both been component parts of The Onlookers, another mod band from Slough who later went on to things, more lysergic and Jess Young and Rick Blackman had been in new wave band The Blitz, so punk, they had not even learnt to play the 'third chord'. Midnight Hour gigged around the usual mod circuit in West London, The White Hart and Jingles in Southall, The Adam & Eve in Hayes. There were residencies in The Anglers Retreat in West Drayton, The Royal Oak in Hayes and monthly spots at the popular inter-gig initiative around the borough, sometimes they even ventured as far afield as Kensington and Hammersmith. Their last gig was with The Little Roosters in The Hambrough Tavern the night before it was burnt down, though Midnight Hour's solicitor stresses that the two incidents were not related, at all. What is presented here on Heavy Soul Records is the demo for what was going to be an EP released on a small West London label in the Spring of 1981. For one reason or another this did not happen and so here, for the first time, are Hayes's finest, the missing West London link to the mod revival. Things may never be the same again.
