Anyone else love this rocking disc? For me it was always one of the great albums of the early 90's.

I remember Metal Edge pumping this one up for what seemed like two years before it came out but when it came out the scene was over and then one of the Ellison brothers killed himself, I can't remember if it was Kyle or Sims. To bad because this band kicked ass IMO and were great for those that loved bands that stradled the line between Hard Rock and Metal like Skid Row. I know these guys were legends in the Austin scene. Has any of our HH members from Texas seen these guys back in the day or met any of the guys before?

Another one I haven't heard in years. I think I thought it was okay but not sure if I thought too much of it... hence it not featuring much in my stereo. I should give it another listen.

Great band! They should have been bigger. Sahm is still active in music, he also has a myspace page. :)

WTF? Are you kidding me? Has aliens kidnapped my friend Jarred?

Surely he hit the wrong smiley and it should of looked something like this. :banger: or even this :headbanger:

 

 

 

I'll check it out again but I bought it at a pawn shop years ago & I thought it blew. If I like it now, I'll take it back ;)

Bought the tape 100 years ago and pkayed the shite out of it. Great band,great sound and Wes is on target with the description of To Mock A Killingbird (great album title even). Nab the Make Believe CD that was released in 92 by the band, this to is a winner!

 

Unfortunately bad timing on these releases, a few years earlier and who knows...

These guys were good. Actually saw them in the USA back in the day. They put on a great show. It was Sims who killed himself. He suffered from depression and the band being dropped from their label quickly after the release of the this CD made him break. These guy had enough songs for multiple albums after this CD.

 

Shandon Sahm, the drummer, sings in a 70's type band now. Him and the others are still actively playing around in different bands.

 

On another related note: Shandon's brother Shawn, a guitarist, had a cool band also back in the day called PREZENCE (which unfortunately is still being bootlegged by Rock-It/Time Warp Records to this day. :bigboom: )

 

PARIAH and PREZENCE were both cool bands everyone should check out. Although PARIAH was abit more sleazier before the 'TO MOCK...' CD.

    • As an elitist my first, second and third reaction was a resounding no.   But then after a little self reflection and attesting that I don't have to have a hard drive of beeps, bits and squeals made it OK.   As mentioned clearly noting the format is key.   I believe we have some "Band Made CDR's" onsite as well, but as stated those are official releases and no other format.   While we are going down the rabbit whole, why not include cassette's? Maybe even vinyl? But the caveat would be that the release fits the parameters of the site and no other format exists, cuz at the end of the day its getting the cool bands seen and known to the elite crowd that resides herein.  
    • And while Young & Fabulous does the most excellent TPOH inspired 1980's glam fused rock n roll, the Upper Crust go old old old school and take it back to the 1880's, Once More Into the Breeches, baby. Both band are far to witty with not only their tongues but yours and your girlfriends jabbed into their cheek
    • You're either into that sort of thing or you aren't... I've been into gaming since Doom released in 1993...actually I even gamed before that on bulletin boards before the internet really got going....
    • Washington State has a boatload of glam bands for glamier than the likes of Heart, no disputing MLB, cuz Landrew the love god is well god. Teachers Pett Rail Gibby Lixx Show N Tell Perennial War Babies TKO Bang Gang Talks Cheap Tramp Alley Alice N Chains (pre Facelift) Diamond Lie Lipstick Aurora Bathtub Gin Whiskey Fixx Masheen Heck even the new (er) Prophets of Addiction ...to name a few, plenty more.  
    • What pray tell is "critical race theory"?
    • That tis funny, and I would watch you pillage for hours but I can't play them type of games, maybe its the motor skills, shrug?
    • Sounds like a brilliant marketing campaign "Who needs lawsuits, when you got Slurpees!"   I for one am glad that particular story had an uplifting and not tragic end, minus the profiling of course.   I tell you its addictive, especially if you get some like minded folks talking about this evolution or this mythical or or or. Fortunately my son still buys too many Pokemon cards and we play the actual card game regularly, that my friends is the best thing ever, when it comes to being a parent, sharing something special with your kids.  
    • It's coming out in February 2022 so your prediction might be a bit off
    • Well I'm a gamer but if I can't blast someones face off with a shotgun then I'm not interested....
