The Inmates: City Rhythms and Jailhouse Blues

Max Bell, New Musical Express, 3 March 1979

BILL HURLEY, lead singer with The Inmates, was definitely built for the job. Bill Hurley clocks in six foot solid from the ground, a hard workin' hard drivin' man who'll drive ya just as hard as he can. Visual statistics alone reveal a specimen constructed in the larger-than-life category. Obviously the geezer who decides these matters is an R&B fan...that seventh day of rest business was just a little joke.
