TKO re-issues

Recommended Posts

Well a company called DiveBomb Records is re-issuing a couple of TKO albums which is great news....as my vinyl versions are getting on a bit.

 

TKO - Let it Roll available at last ..... joy of joys I absolutely love this quirky kind of album....probably my fave of the bands three proper releases.

 

TKO - In Your Face the mega cool and heavier In Your Face. Brad Sinsel kept the TKO flag flying and took a leaner more aggressive approach...much more "metal". He had Adam Bomb on guitar who also co-wrote the bulk of the material, although only given a passing credit as Adam Brenner on the sleeve, in fact from the band picture I think it was only Brad Sinsel who actually appeared on the album as the others who recorded it had left as it had a long delay from recording to final release (I think Rick Pierce who went on to Q5 also played on this). Easily their strongest over the two released during their "heavier period" as Below the Belt although a solid album just didn't have the riffs or the songs....but that's Adam Bomb for ya...hugely underrated.

 

 

Anyway limited to 1000 copies each if your into them then here's the link

But now I'll have to buy the other couple of CD's to finish of my little silver disc collection :lol:

'Run Out Of Town' was loosely based on the story of Sinsel being banned from playing a number of venues in the North West.

 

Sinsel was indeed the only member of the band that had recorded the album who appeared on the finished album cover, which meant that the likes of Scott Earl, Kjartan Kristoffersen and Ken Mary got credit for work they didn't do.

Gary Thompson (drums), Rick Pierce (guitar) and Evan Sheeley (bass) had all joined Q5 by the time 'In Your Face' was released. Adam Brenner had, of course, gone solo. I believe he had actually recorded most of the guitar work. Pierce may have only made a fleeting cameo. I'll have to check. That material was recorded and remixed so many times.....

Sound quality of the TKO "In Your Face" reissue any good ?

 

There were some issues about it saying it wasn't perfect but Yeah - I'm well pleased ...better than some of the Rock Candy re-issues. There is a remastered version of the album on the disk right after the orig. Not keen on the remaster though....I much prefer it unaltered.

Just put an order in for these two. Both excellent, although my preference is for 'Let It Roll' by a nose. Look forward to gettting these and spinning the hell out of them!

A personal friend of mine owns the Divebomb label and will be pleased to hear any praise from you guys. He essentially made no $ off this and went though A LOT to get these out. "For the love of the music" is how he explained it to me.

Any other opinions on TKO? I nearly bought one of their CDs and was wondering whether to renew my interest. It was either 'Below The Belt' or 'In Your Face', any thoughts?

TKO did 3 quite different albums stylewise, so the choice is yours. Personally I prefer the Quirkier 'Let It Roll' to the ones mentioned, but I know a few people prefer the more straightforward and harder rocking 'In Your Face' and 'Below The Belt'. Of those 2, then definitely 'In Your Face'.

    • The boy who cried... "hallowed be thy name".
    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound!

    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
    • No Line On The Horizon-U2
    • Last World-Beautiful Illusion  Kenny McGee-The Picture 
    • It was Bryan Wolski I was thinking of. Victor played in Mitch Malloy's band at Firefest.
