Biography

London PX were a punk band formed in 1979 in North London. Cliff Hanger (the singer) was discovered in the George Robey pub in Finsbury Park standing on the pool table singing Angelic Upstarts songs. Some gigs followed and their first single “Orders” was released in the summer of 1981, reaching No.10 in the Melody Maker independent charts. By summer 1982 the band had fragmented as a result of half the band leaving. However, later that year, guitarist Mitchell Wells and bassist Dave Yole carried on and their second single, a red vinyl flexidisc, was released in November 1982 - a cover version of that great early Pink Floyd song “Arnold Layne”. After a final gig in November 1982 and a last rehearsal on December 30th 1982, the band was no more. That is until recently. Recent interest in the band has resulted in an albums worth of all the songs they recorded from 1979 to 1982. This is to be released very soon on the Parts Unknown record label.
LATEST: On July 14th 2007 all four members of the ‘classic’ line up reunited and played in a rehearsal room near London. The band have now officially reformed and will be playing gigs in the near future.
