CATHY COME HOME ( you silly cow)
ALL SMASHED UP
Chartered Hurricane was a NWOBHM duo consisting of Phil and Mark Jones that gigged consistently and built up a large following in the Newport Gwent area of Wales in the early 80's. The band formed in 1981 and released this one very scarce single (originally housed in a stamped sleeve) in 1983. The A side "Cathy Come Home" is a totally great one part pop song While the B side "All Smashed Up" is more appealing to NWOBHM collector types. The band eventually grew from a duo to a five piece adding Mike Ward on bass, Terry (TNT) Thomas on drums and Robert Millar on guitar. After several failed attempts to break it big in London they split in 1984.
