You’ve kinda answered the question yourself Big Man.
Yes, Naz were much more successful, but SAHB had more street cred, especially in the UK.
When I joined Zal in 1978, each member of SAHB owed 60 grand (including Alex) to the record company.
When I joined Naz in 1981, each member had a second holiday home.
(Darrell even had his own speedboat in Spain called “Broken Down Angel.”)
Moral of the story: “Street cred and being popular in Turriff doesn’t guarantee you’ll get your own speedboat.”
