Can anyone tell me about this band 'Fist' from Ontario, Canada, formed in 1979.

Are they a Hard Rock group like April Wine/Triumph that sota thing or heavier?

Which is their best album?

Were any of their older albums released on CD at some point?

 

Useless information...in searching for info on this band I discovered there is a New Zealand Death Metal band called 'Fist Fucked by Aliens'. Found that funny and had to share.

I only owned a couple of their CDs and my fav was Hot Spikes but none of their releases were particularly memorable.....Ron Chenier's vocals are an acquired taste.......April Wine & Triumph were much better bands IMO.....Fist did remind me of Axe for some reason but once again Axe was a better band....you can hear samples here...........

Pretty good band all in all and the Axe comparison isn't a bad one, although they aren't as good as Axe and were a little more heavier in style. They were known as Myofist over here in the UK, as there was another Fist (signed originally to Neat records, who released the 'Turn The Hell On' album on MCA). The debut Fist 'Round One' is very Pompy, with a sort of heavy Saga vibe, especially keyboards (moogs) wise and is a disc I like alot. It was re-issued by Canadian label Magada some years back and should be easy enough to get hold of. 'Hot Spikes' 'Fleet Street' ('Thunder In Rock' as it was known in the UK), 'In The Red' & 'Danger Zone' are really good discs and I have been after these on CD for a while now without luck (If they were all ever released on cd that is - i'd especially like a copy of 'Fleet Street' if they have). 'Reign Of Terror' and 'Loud Loud' are more metal sounding discs, and are ok but not as good as the stuff before. - I have these two on cd and again should be easyish to get hold of. The last 2 cd's are the compilation 'Fleet Street Revival' and 'Bolted Door' which were both avaliable from the bands website a few years back.

Great, I do quite like a lot of the Canadian Hard Rock bands from the 80's, for example the previously mentioned Triumph and April Wine, so I'll give this band a listen too. Sounds like it shouldn't be too difficult to track down some CD's on Amazon/E-Bay. I might stay away from the heavier ones - 'Reign Of Terror' and 'Loud Loud' for now. Thanks guys for the info.

The only one you'll get will be 'Round One'. I have looked everywhere for the other 3. Like I said, I don't even know if they were all released on CD. as I have never seen them.

Be prepared for some of the most gawdawful lyrics you've ever heard - it's really juvenile stuff on par with Keel's best (worst).

Fist only had about three tunes that were worth listening. Fleet Street (Making People Pies, Evil In his Eyes) is ESSENTIAL if you are a rock fan. But I would say that In The Red is their best album. Get the greatest hits and call it good.

I have Round One on Magda which certainly looks official - if a little cheaply produced! I'm not aware of anything up to Danger Zone being on CD, but I do have Fleet Street on CD on Reborn Classics. pirate CD from 1993, it has Kooga Across The Water and Fleet Street on the same disc! I think I've got a couple of these on Revorn Classics, but I'd love to see a full list of releases.

Hi there

 

Only for say that I have just grabed a copy of FIST Danger zone in ebay (re-released by Rockit Records)for a rasonable price. I think it would be more copies of this one running out there.

 

The presence and sound of the cd is very good (in my humble opinion), and for my is a very good chance to get it (don´t want to imagine the cost of an original copy,if it´s exist)

 

bye

Hi -

 

I have 'Round One' for sale over at my site on CD. It is up for £30 but I happened to speak to the guy selling this the other day and he is willing to negotiate (reminds me I must amend posting on my site to this effect).

 

My site is: http://www.freewebs.com/aor4sale/

(There is a full description on the site regarding this release/condition/picture link etc)

 

I may also have 'Danger Zone' in the near future (but this is a Time Warp re issue)...

 

You can email me at: aor4sale@yahoo.co.uk

 

Many thanks -

 

Graham

Amazon.co.uk sell brand new copies themselves for £13.69, and at least one market place seller is selling it for less than £10, but for some reason I never understand, some market place sellers are selling it for £30+

    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor. 
    • Not at all what I thought a band called "Days of Wine" would sound like; I was expecting something much more laid back. This could be awesome, though.  There have been many days of wine in my life lately. ;}
    • Days Of Wine | Facebook   The self-titled “Days Of Wine” is the upcoming debut album from DAYS OF WINE, consisting of close friends from the Oslo / Norway rock music scene. After years of playing in their respective bands, it was time to join forces to make a high class melodic classic rock album. All are reputed musicians from the major Melodic Hard Rock scene; superb songwriter / keyboardist Leif Johansen (21 Guns, Phenomena), singer Leif Digernes (Westpoint), guitarist Tom Sennerud (Stoneflower), drummer Geir Digernes (Sons Of Angels) and guitarist Jon Johannessen (Stoneflower, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom). Some friends also came by and contributed to some of the songs, i.e. brothers Gregg Bissonette (drums, David Lee Roth) and Matt Bissonette, (bass, David Lee Roth, Joe Satriani), Jon Pettersen (Ammunition), Lars Andrè Kvistum (Conception) keyboards, and Ronni Le Tekro (TNT) dropping some guitar. You can’t go wrong with “Days Of Wine”; this is classic, traditional melodic hard rock / classic rock from the Scandi factory. During Spring 2021, ten songs were recorded for the self-titled debut at Stable Studios, Oslo. The songs are based on the lyrics of Leif Johansen but musically grounded in the Classic Rock genre. Leading the charge is the melodic and “raspy” voice of singer Leif Digernes. To emphasize the classic rock vibe, all backing tracks were recorded “live” in the studio. With such astute and accomplished musicians, it couldn’t have been done in any other way. 01 – Seven Days In Love 02 – Devil`s Bill 03 – Spread Your Wings 04 – Healerman 05 – Like The Others (feat. Markus Klyve) 06 – Never Stop Believing 07 – Angels In Disguise (feat. Gregg & Matt Bissonette) 08 – My Last Kiss 09 – Paint The Sky 10 – Days Of Wine Leif Digernes: Vocals (Westpoint, Bronx, Stuntbandet) Leif Johansen, Bass, keyboards, Vocals (21 Guns, Phenomena, A-ha) Geir Digernes, Drums/Percussion, (Sons Of Angels, Stuntbandet) Tom Sennerud, Guitar, Vocals (Stoneflower, Diezel) Jon Johannessen, Guitar, (Stoneflower, Diezel, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom)
