Anyone ever heard of this obscure Sioux Falls, SD band? I have a cassette from them of this album from 1990. Very solid release!! Couldn't find any info on them online though. Did they release anything else?

Interesting! So the lead singer must be the same guy that has the local Sioux Falls tv show Out N About With Terri N Todd! I have the Razor Kane album Liver Up, pretty good but not exactly fantastic. I've talked to that guy a couple times at Dakota Rock Fest. I'll have to ask him about the Guns For Hyre album.

So what's your favorite Hot Plate? ;)

 

That vid with Damon is hilarious.

Well, here's the email I got back from the lead singer. Not much, but it's a start.

I was the lead singer in both bands. Mahny years ago! I have all the music we recoded on discs, and someday will try to find the time to convert it all to mp3. Busy now with TV, as I produce Nature Adventures on SDPB. but once I get around to it, I have no problem sharing the music with you.

So for those that have heard it, is this 'Guns for Hyre' album pretty decent? Something that deserves a cd reissue?

    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
