Named following the cult US novelist, Harry Crews was a short-lived task featuring Lydia Lunchtime (vocals), Kim Gordon (bass, vocals), concurrently of Sonic Youth, and Sadie Mae (drums). In 1988 the group undertook a tour of the united kingdom and Europe, elements of which were conserved on Naked In Backyard Hills, originally released on Lunchtime’s very own Widowspeak label. The record owes very much to Lunchtime’s confrontational design, however the tempo is normally markedly even more upbeat than the majority of her function. Its content is basically motivated by Crews’ writings, notably ‘Knockout Musician’, the name of 1 of his books. However, the record does add a virulent edition of Sonic Youngsters’s ‘(She’s IN THE) Poor Disposition’. Harry Crews split in 1988 when the tour was comprehensive.
