Shark Vegas was a Berlin based New Wave band, consisting of ex-Factory Records German representative, Mark Reeder (Guitar/tapes/Keyboards), Alistair Gray (Vocals), Leo Walter (Drums/Percussion) and Helmut Wittler (Bass/keyboards). Previously Reeder & Grey were known as "Die Unbekannten" together with their drummer Tommy Wiedler (now with Nick Cave's Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds) they later used drum machines and sequencers (in fact Die Unbekannten are credited with making the first record with a Roland TR-606).

Today Reeder runs a string of labels included MFS and Flesh, launching the careers of Paul Van Dyk and Corvin Dalek. Shark Vegas reinvented themselves with two new members Walter & Wittler for a New Order European tour in 1984. "You Hurt me" was one of their concert favorites and Bernard Sumner of New Order wanted to release the track as a single.

He also plays guitar at the closing moments of the track. Sumner co-produced the track with A Certain Ratio's Donald Johnson, who also added vocals to the track. A different version to this single was also released on Die Toten Hosen's label "Totenkopf". A later Shark Vegas track 'Pretenders of Love' can also be found on the Factory US compilation "Young, Popular & Sexy" (Fac US 17). Read more on Last.fm.
