THE LOCAL HEROES (BLAST THE POP)

I know blast the pop was the song comped from this but , I always liked tomorrow a little more . I had a hard time finding anything on this band . If you have any info please share it with us . The Local Heroes were formed in 1979, and they were an amalgamation of two other local bands Physical Wrecks and Cry Tough, bringing together a glam rock sound. Members included John Kay, guitar and vocals, Colin Schofield, drums and Ken Park, bass and vocals. The band found favour with Manchester DJ Mark Radcliffe who liked their demo tape, recorded under the name of Beans and the Toasties, so much that he later played a session from the band on Manchester's Radio Piccadilly. It was this brief taste of fame and fortune that prompted the band to change their name to Local Heroes.
