He´s Got Hart
Mike Hart was a Liverpudlian singer-songwriter and poet. In 1962, he founded the band The Roadrunners, before joining The Liverpool Scene in 1965.
This poetry and music collective recorded several albums before Mike made two solo albums (Mike Hart Bleeds, Basher, Chalky, Pongo And Me), produced by John Peel on his Dandelion label.
His song ‘Almost Liverpool 8’ has been used in a film of the same name that documents the Toxteth community of Liverpool, using images from acclaimed photojournalist Don McCullin. The film paints a contemporary portrait of that postcode through the people who inhabit it today.
Cherry Red represent not only Mike’s solo output but also the various recordings of the Liverpool Scene and those early Roadrunners sides.
