"Psychomodo" is a song by British rock band Cockney Rebel, fronted by Steve Harley. The song was released as a single in 1974 from the album The Psychomodo. It was released in Europe and not the UK.
"Psychomodo" was written by Harley and produced by both Harley and Alan Parsons. The song's only charting success was in Belgium (Vl), where the single peaked at #28 and lasted on the chart for a total of two weeks.
In the Belgian Popshop magazine of July 1974, an article speaking of the song stated "Psychomodo is for us the third hit single by Cockney Rebel. It is also the title of their second LP. A few weeks ago Cockney Rebel entered the UK charts for the first time with the song Judy Teen. Sebastian flopped in England despite huge promotions from their record company. With Psychomodo, Steve Harley and his boys have gone in the rock direction. In Their Sebastian period they were being written up somewhat as successors to the Beatles and the Stones. We don't really see it like that anymore after Judy Teen and Psychomodo. With songs like this Cockney Rebel could well become a one hit wonder."
The song was recorded during February and March of 1974. It was either recorded at Morgan Studios, Nova Sound Studios in London or AIR Studios. It was mastered at Abbey Road Studios, like the rest of The Psychomodo album.
