I agree. This still receives plenty of plays by me. :banger:

Yeah, I always liked it too, which I guess says something as I wasn't too big a fan of these type of vocalists. A couple of lesser tracks, but some gems too. Definitely worth picking up the dl if you don't have it.

 

I liked the 'Love Potion #9' cover too.

If I had to pick a favorite track, I'd probably go with Gemini.

Yeah, that'd have to be my fave too, followed amazingly closely by the two stellar ballads, 'Paradise in the sand' and 'Make a wish' (which I actually much prefer over the great Jesse Strange version).

I love Jesse Strange but I also prefer this version of "Make a Wish", probably because it's the first version I heard. And "Paradise In The Sand" is an awesome ballad! (we really need an emoticon of a smiley holding up a lighter :lol: )

I really love this one!! Some great songs, and contrary to quite a few people, i like the vocals. Fave song would have to be "Gemini", with it's brilliant pre-chorus and chorus, followed by "Love Potion #9" and "Piece Of The Action". The 2 ballads are great, too, and i prefer their version of "Make A Wish" over Jesse Strange's version as well.

I'm at work bored as hell so that would explain how I found this:

 

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=QE4hAAAAIBAJ&sjid=LYIFAAAAIBAJ&pg=4360,2915044&dq=beau-nasty&hl=en

 

Go to page two and scroll over to the lower right hand side of the page for the article. It's an old article from 1990 talking about Beau Nasty. There is also a big pic of the lead singer signing some chicks back.

 

At the end of the article it mentions they have started work on their second album. My question is "WHAT THE HELL EVER HAPPENED TO THAT SECOND ALBUM??!!"

Love the intro, doesn't waste anytime getting started! The moody verses are also cool... and don't forget the high pitched "Ahhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhh" backing vocals after he sings "Gemini" in the chorus (apart from the first one). Favourite song on the album. Also prefer their version of Make a Wish over the Jesse Strange version, but that might be because I heard the BN version first.

Yeah, 'Gemini' is my fave too. Awesome song. I like 'Make a wish' better than the Jesse Strange version too, but I also think it's because I heard it first from Beau Nasty.

 

As for the 2nd album, I think when I went on my magazine buying rampages 10 years back and got all the old Kerrangs, I'm sure I also remember reading a little thing about them starting work on a second album. I wonder how far they got, if there's an unreleased full disc out there?

I'm really intrigued by this second album. What's the consensus? Does it exist? If so, what does it sound like and where can I get a hold of it?

Oh and is it me or does Make A Wish sound like it belongs in a High School sitcom a la Saved By The Bell?

Either that, or 'Baywatch'. Both that and 'Paradise in the sand' were pretty cheesy ballads, even if both are excellent.

Never found this album to be that interesting to be honest, and especially found the vocals to be very weak.

The version of Make a wish by Jesse Strange walks all over the wishy washy version on here.

Hey Rob thanks for the info on this link. Just downloaded it & it's excellent! I'd heard of this band back in the day but never really paid attention to 'em. :headbanger:

It's a fun listen, even tho the cheez factor was fairly high.

 

I covered this one in my "Forgotten Hard Rock Albums" blog awhile ago:

    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor. 
    • Not at all what I thought a band called "Days of Wine" would sound like; I was expecting something much more laid back. This could be awesome, though.  There have been many days of wine in my life lately. ;}
    • Days Of Wine | Facebook   The self-titled “Days Of Wine” is the upcoming debut album from DAYS OF WINE, consisting of close friends from the Oslo / Norway rock music scene. After years of playing in their respective bands, it was time to join forces to make a high class melodic classic rock album. All are reputed musicians from the major Melodic Hard Rock scene; superb songwriter / keyboardist Leif Johansen (21 Guns, Phenomena), singer Leif Digernes (Westpoint), guitarist Tom Sennerud (Stoneflower), drummer Geir Digernes (Sons Of Angels) and guitarist Jon Johannessen (Stoneflower, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom). Some friends also came by and contributed to some of the songs, i.e. brothers Gregg Bissonette (drums, David Lee Roth) and Matt Bissonette, (bass, David Lee Roth, Joe Satriani), Jon Pettersen (Ammunition), Lars Andrè Kvistum (Conception) keyboards, and Ronni Le Tekro (TNT) dropping some guitar. You can’t go wrong with “Days Of Wine”; this is classic, traditional melodic hard rock / classic rock from the Scandi factory. During Spring 2021, ten songs were recorded for the self-titled debut at Stable Studios, Oslo. The songs are based on the lyrics of Leif Johansen but musically grounded in the Classic Rock genre. Leading the charge is the melodic and “raspy” voice of singer Leif Digernes. To emphasize the classic rock vibe, all backing tracks were recorded “live” in the studio. With such astute and accomplished musicians, it couldn’t have been done in any other way. 01 – Seven Days In Love 02 – Devil`s Bill 03 – Spread Your Wings 04 – Healerman 05 – Like The Others (feat. Markus Klyve) 06 – Never Stop Believing 07 – Angels In Disguise (feat. Gregg & Matt Bissonette) 08 – My Last Kiss 09 – Paint The Sky 10 – Days Of Wine Leif Digernes: Vocals (Westpoint, Bronx, Stuntbandet) Leif Johansen, Bass, keyboards, Vocals (21 Guns, Phenomena, A-ha) Geir Digernes, Drums/Percussion, (Sons Of Angels, Stuntbandet) Tom Sennerud, Guitar, Vocals (Stoneflower, Diezel) Jon Johannessen, Guitar, (Stoneflower, Diezel, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom)
