The Hype (David Bowie band)
The Hype was a band formed by David Bowie in 1970. They were originally called Harry the Butcher, then David Bowie's imagination, Bowie settled on The Hype. Bowie has said he choose the name tongue in cheek. The band has been credited with helping to form the Glam Rock scene in the 1970s. The band was also the debut for Mick Ronson when they played at the Round house. The performance was badly received, the band was laughed and jeered at as they left the stage.
