Tell God I'm Here (Expanded) - Hurrah!

Tell God I'm Here (Expanded)
Originally known as the Green-Eyed Children, Hurrah! consisted of Paul Handyside-guitar/vocals, David ‘Taffy’ Hughes-guitar/vocals, David Porthouse-bass and Mark Sim-drums.    Switching to the moniker of Hurrah!, the quartet signed to the new Kitchenware Records label in 1982. Mark Sim soon departed to be replaced by Damien Mahoney, whereupon a series of acclaimed singles such as ‘The Sun Shines Here’ and ‘Hip Hip’ earned the band great respect from the British Independent sector. Based upon the pivotal force of the singing/guitar-playing/songwriting partnership of Paul Handyside and David Hughes, Hurrah! mastered a jittery, urgent style rich in melodic content.   By 1986, however, the band had pushed their sound towards a rockier terrain, replacing the initial charm with power and passion. Damien Mahoney left to join the police force in the spring of that year, allowing Steve Price to fill the vacant drum stool. Their debut ‘Tell God I’m Here’ saw the light of day in 1987, swiftly followed by a support date with U2 at London’s Wembley stadium but commercial success remained elusive   This glorious package is housed in a digi-pack with full and informative sleeve-notes and features some rare memorabilia.   Re-mastered from the original tapes, this is the first European release for these titles.
