Good question. I don't do it as much as I use to because of the age of samples, etc. on the internet. In all honesty, the last cd I bought without hearing anything from it was the Farcry cd. And man, what a fucking hit! Wish all my gambles paid off like that one.

I took a chance on a band called "Mary's Rest" out of Minneapolis. It turned out to be a pretty decent cd.

It's been a while since I bought a CD on a whim with no referrals. The last one was Shadow Gallery- Tyranny. Boy what a hit that was!! Still love that album!!

I bought Lillian Axe's Love And War on tape in a delete bin back in '91. I bought it purely because of the hot chick on the cover. Since then they are my all time favorite band.

I do this a lot with the modern rock CDs I buy from Secondspin. I get a mixed result, but the only failures usually set me back about us$0-$2 so it doesn't really phase me either way. The wins are more than worth it.

 

The last MHR disc was probably that Houston 'Fast in Elegance' disc which was a huge miss. But I NEVER buy MHR CDs like that on a whim anymore... well, not often.

I used to do it all the time in the late 80s.......i reckon 90% of the discs I bought at that time I hadnt heard before. But then in the golden age 95% were hits so it didnt matter.

 

I never do it now........just havent got the cash, not with kids an all that.

 

I'll probably still pick up around 30 discs a year tho....mix of modern and MHR. More than that and the wife would kill me :-))

Loads...loads...in the past the last two I bought at the same time from Muse Music in Heben Bridge both 50p

 

Tornado Babies - Delerious

Den of Thieves - Honour Amongst Thieves

 

Both pleased with I think the Tornado Babies has the edge, but both have their fair share of decent songs - but not essential discs.

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • 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.
