Can anyone help me remember this band?

I think they're canadian and were late 70s - early 80s.

They changed the name of the band to release a killer soundtrack for an early 80s movie and I saw the movie once but can't remember what it was called!

I keep thinking of Steppenwolf but don't think it was them.

Can anyone answer please?

Thanks in advance.

The first one that comes to mind is Kick Axe, who were Canadian, and who had a couple of songs on the animated "Transformers" film under the name Spectre General.

 

Is that who you're thinking of? If not, sorry, that's all I got. :blink:

This is a stab in the dark - Riggs, they contributed 2 songs to the soundtrack of the HEAVY METAL movie in 1981 :unsure:

What can I say, my brain is a repository of useless music trivia. Unfortunately it's at the expense of important stuff like where I left my keys, my wife's and children's birthdays, where my pants are, etc. :lol:

Haha I ain't complaining. The name of that band was bugging me for about a week before I asked here.

This site really is a great resource for all things rock and metal! :bowdown::headbanger:

I got "Rock The World" by Kick Axe recently and it is damned excellent.

Sounds like a cross between 80s glam stuff and Nevermore.

Weird but great nonetheless.

They were a great band!! :tumbsup:

I also liked their version of 30 DAYS IN THE HOLE on the UP THE CREEK soundtrack!!

    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.
    • Tracklist: 1. Super Fine Sugar  2:48 2. Drive It Like I Stole It (featuring Berton Averre of The Knack)  4:25 3. Cherry Cola (featuring Jon Auer of The Posies)  3:50 4. Ex Machina (featuring Jesper and Jacob Binzer of D-A-D)  3:40 5. Pay My Rent  4:25 6. Dirty Earth (featuring Tony Harnell)  4:16 7. Take Me To The River  2:47 8. This Means War  4:36 9. Trouble (featuring Brian Forsythe of Kix)  5:00 10. Clown Parade (featuring Jon Auer of The Posies)  3:36 11. Zero At The Bone    4:46 12. Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A. Guns-S/T Bruno Mars-Unorthodox Jukebox Motley Crue-The Dirt Soundtrack Simple Minds-Glittering Prize Patty Smyth-S/T U2-The Joshua Tree    
    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:
