Guest Metalworks

We were formed in January 1980 in the basement of the drummer's house in DeKalb County, Georgia. We debuted on December 6, 1980 at the Christmas dance at Shamrock High School. In the summer of 1981, we recorded two songs (In the Name of Rock and Roll and Queen for a Day) at Monarch Studios in Alpharetta, Georgia and submitted them for consideration by a local radio station (96rock) for inclusion in its Home Cookin' II LP. Out of over 1100 submissions, In the Name of Rock and Roll was one of the 12 songs selected for the album (released in the summer of 1982). In fall 1982, we recorded another eight songs at Monarch for inclusion on a demo. We disbanded the following year, but the 10 recordings were kept by our producer, Steve Starnes, and Monarch's engineer, Larry Turner. Steve and Larry were able to successfully digitally transfer the surviving copies of these songs to CD in 2007, and after obtaining the necessary U.S. copyrights, we were able (finally) to distribute them under the Catapult Distribution label to digital download sites like iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, and Amazon on June 1, 2009, where they are currently available for sale to the public.
