    Shadowfax were a short lived London based NWOBHM band, based at 24, Matham Grove, East Dulwich, and were managed by Steve Overbury.

    Their lone release, the highly regarded "The Russians Are Coming" 45, was a self-released affair on their own Risky records label, written and sung by Martin Harris. The single was only available at their gigs and via mail order from the band themselves. It's become a cult collectors piece in recent years since the reevaluation of the NWOBHM.

    Phil the guitarist OD'd and died (body discovered by his dealer). Darryl the replacement jumped off an Old Kent Road tower block (body only identified months later when his mum recognised his tattoos). Tony the drummer got involved in a fight in the North Cross Road. Hammer on head with long term consequences. Kev the co-manager hanged himself. Martin was last heard of in very poor health.
