They released a single for Phillips in 1968 (Tobacco Ash Sunday/How Do You Feel) before releasing their only LP, Heaven and Hell, on Phillips in 1969. A final single followed soon after, before the band split in 1969. Their Heaven and Hell LP is now a highly-sought rarity, going for hundreds of pounds between eager collectors. For this reason, Harsh Reality is somewhat famous/infamous in collecting circles. Though technically proto-prog, their work represented a marriage between the sounds of Procol Harum and early Deep Purple. Following the band's demise, Roger Swallow has lent his talent variously to Principle Edwards Magic Theatre, Matthews Southern Comfort, Plainsong, Albion Country Band, and Al Stewart before moving to California and establishing himself as an electronic musician, songwriter and entrepreneur. Alan Greed went on to work with Ray Russell on the Rock Workshop albums and as a session singer.
Mark Griffiths has worked with Matthews Southern Comfort, Jonathan Kelly, Al Stewart, David Essex, The Everly Brothers, and Cliff Richard & The Shadows. The rest of the band also went into session work. 3) KC HARDCORE Meatball - Hymns Rewthless Snowball - Guitar Dillon - Drums Thrasher - Guitar Dusty - Bass http://www.mediafire.com/?dprmsszuqggd85z 4) INLAND EMPIRE HARDCORE Adrian-Vocals Carlos-Guitar Rich-Guitar Nick-Drums Juan-Bass www.facebook.com/harshrealityhc www.harshrealityhc.bandcamp.com Read more on Last.fm.
