Many people will recognise the simple riff at the beginning.
The Lurkers and their fans known as the Lurker Liggers came from around Kingston, Putney and Fulham.
We used to hang around Howard Walls (Lead singer) house in Walton-on-Thames playing records (never the Lurkers). It was Howard who introduced me to Johnny Thunders and George Thorogood, not really punk but excellent music, I recommend you try them.
I can remember Howard saying that the only time people printed their lyrics was if they were good, which is strange now as the lyrics to "Shadow" and the b-side "Love Story" are on the back cover (high resolution scan included in the download) and reading them now, I wonder what he thinks of them.
None the less Shadow is one of the great Punk classics.
