If I like Danger Danger...

I swear there was another thread on this topic a while back but I can't find it so my apologies...

 

I just started to really get into Danger Danger recently and would like any input on bands with a similar sound to them. I know you all will be able to point me in the right direction so any suggestions are greatly appreciated! :)

Skewing slightly outside of exactly what you're asking, if you enjoy the Paul Laine version of D2, I'd definitely recommend you check out Paul's solo efforts; particularly "Stick it in Your Ear":

Not a dead ringer for the D2 sound, but again, if you enjoy Laine's work with D2, you should enjoy his solo stuff. :tumbsup:

Yup, dig Laine as much as Poley!

Intuition Turn it On - although it's pricey.

 

I always thought Thomas Laverdi from Scott Gorham's 21 Guns sounded alot like Ted. Salute is a killer disc regardless.

I've got 21 Guns but never thought much of them aside from one or two songs. I will check out Intuition for sure! :tumbsup:

Hey Rick, Paul's "Stick in Your Ear" is a great great album IMO. :tumbsup:

Rick, you should get your hands on Hotshot - s/t ( feat vocalist Mike Pont ). the band had westy & bruno before those two went on to form DANGER DANGER ( d2 )& you can really hear thier sound they took to d2. The CD is available at www.hotshotrocks.com

 

Also try the first couple of Bone Machine cds feat Ted Poley. Ted's recent stuff hasn't matched those Bone Machine gems imho so maybe the time's right for Ted to ressurect Bone Machine.

 

Another band that reminds me of "screw it" era D2 is a band called Kid Cardiac. These guys only ever put out a superb 3 tracker e.p during the early 90's afaik.

 

Friction - Baby Talks has some D2 influences....

 

Sic Vikki - Kiss me in french... as previously noted has a massive D2 influence.....

 

Hope thats helps.

Great suggestions...Love Hotshot, Sic Vikki and Friction (still waiting for that to become available on Retrospect)! I have not heard Kid Cardiac but will try to track down that EP. I think I might have some Bone Machine songs on my computer I'll have to check out.

If you need to check out more Bone Machine let me know.

Do you have Ted's solo album "Collateral Damage"? That's a good one.

I was able to track down Bone Machine - Dogs. Hope that's a good one!

I found Bone Machine a bit of a downer, whereas DD are an upper!

Agreed, Bone Machine is nowhere near the quality level of D2 IMHO. Production is iffy, and the songs have brief moments of awesome surrounded by fillerisms.

 

It's not bad, but it always makes me feel like putting on the real thing instead of trying to enjoy the half-baked version. :(

Dont mention Bone Machine!!

Since Poley sings for Bone Machine they should be mentioned. That and the fact that it's a great band. The Dogs cd is right on par with Danger Danger.

I can't believe I forgot about these guys but what about Savannah? Both of their studio albums are very similar to the ST D2 album. And the vox are dead on! I absolutely love their first album!

I'll have to keep an eye out for them!

    • That’s not bad at all. I’d love to get an AOR Freaky reaction to this, as it kinda makes me think of the Nu Breed style that started taking off around ‘03 that we know he loved so much! 😂
    • If you liked that one, I think you'll find this one to be pretty cool. It's not satirical though:  
    • Looking at the song titles, this is 100% what I expected. Not into it at all - quite dislike it, to be honest. And the song titles do nothing to fill me with confidence that any of the other songs will be any better.  Anyway, this is a real surprise. I thought he was far removed from the music scene and his voice was allegedly not up to ever returning to Autograph (as I assume, music, generally speaking?) 
    • agree with the comments on that first track, was expecting a little more from Steve, maybe something similar to the songs on Buzz, still looking forward to hearing the rest of the album though
    • Germany based label label Pride & Joy Music will continue the Pride & Joy Music Classixx series on June 14th, 2024 with the release of the following 2 classic albums: The LA Cowboys - Endless Summer (Westcoast) Captain Black Beard - Sonic Forces +2 (Melodic Rock) As usual, these titles are only available via shop.prideandjoy.de and direct wholesale via Pride & Joy Music. Both are ltd. editions with 300 copies only each. Due to a high amount of pre-orders, the classic The LA Cowboys album already is almost sold out.   https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16355-the-la-cowboys-endless-summer-cd.html https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16354-captain-black-beard-sonic-forces-cd.html The bonus tracks on the Captain Blackbeard reissue are: 11. All The Pain (Bonus Track – 2022 re-recording) 12. Headlights (Instrumental Synthwave Remix)
    • But in all honesty, I hope music fans can eventually use AI to digitally remaster demo recordings with shitty audio quality
    • Ah, fukkit, what do I care? You're my people so I'll post a link to one I/we (AI and me, lol) just did now.  You're not telling me anything I don't know about how cringe the lyrics are, but in my defence this was written on 25th of July, 2001. Yes, even my youthful self shouldn't have been such a maggot, but I don't care too much. A slice of history, I guess you could say. Anyway, you can see in this what I mean about awkward phrasing and melodies not how the writer intended, but you also may get a sense that the result can still be pretty fun and appealing, perhaps, if you penned your own lyrics.  Another thing I'll say is that the almost violin/cello/accordion-sounding guitar riff seems to keep popping up in 90% of the songs I do with this or similar prompts, and I don't understand how/why that is associated with melodic rock. But it's there, constantly. Guess AI only has so many ideas so far?  I don't like that it has the prompts (which you can see have been somewhat ignored, I guess?) and the lyrics on display, but here's an example of what I'm droning on about, for reference; https://suno.com/song/0b797863-cd90-40b6-94da-5abe78ff98ca  
    • I just shared the following song in AOR Song of the Day, but I figure I'll also create a separate thread since I can't find any information about this band—not even a Discogs page! If anybody has any info to share about them, that'll be awesome!
