Harry Crews was a short-lived hardcore / Thrash / No Wave band made up of Lydia Lunch (guitar), Kim Gordon (bass) and Sadie Mae (drums). Their one album, Naked In Garden Hills, released in 1989, was a compilation of live recordings at clubs in London, UK and Austria. The album was named after a novel by the author Harry Crews, and songs such as Car, The Knockout Artist and The Gospel Singer were also named after Crews' novels. The song Bringing Me Down is introduced as a song about a snake festival, a subject Crews wrote about in the novel A Feast Of Snakes. The band also performed Sonic Youth's She's In A Bad Mood and Teenage Jesus & the Jerks' Orphans.
