Dare

Anyone who has read the FF thread will know that Dare are playing a one-off gig of their classic 'Out Of The Silence' disc at FF this year.

 

When they announced the line up on ARFM last weekend they had Darren Wharton on the line and he said that they intended to re-record the whole of 'Out Of The Silence' this year with an amazing new production sound and a real 'beef up' of the songs with more guitars.

 

Also, they intend to include a few bonus tracks of songs they wrote at the time but which never saw light of day.

 

Thoughts??

 

Could be a potential train wreck, but if done well could be excellent.

 

The thought of a beefed up guitar sound could work well as some tracks are a bit keyboard overkill......

 

Also, id be interested in hearing some of the unreleased tracks. Hopefully they would be up to the standard of the debut or surely they wouldnt be bothering??

 

Cheers

It sounds fine just the way it is. A remaster maybe with bonus tracks, but there is absolutely no need for a re-record this album, except to make some £'s for DW. From past listening experiences, re-records are generally not as good or lose the feel of the original anyway, so leave this 'Classic' album alone.

 

There's new versions of 'I Will Return' and 'King Of Spades' on the latest album and we don't need anymore in my opinion. What people want is new rockier material instead of rehashing old stuff again and again.

Yeah, I've made my thoughts on re-recorded albums clear many times. Absolutely pointless.

 

More guitars? That comment really surprised me. If anything, I'd have expected the new version to be the mellow, guitarless celtic version of the CD.

 

Anyway, as Glen says, if there really are more guitars (to make it sound more like 'Blood from stone'? I thought they hated that CD?) it could be okay-ish, but I'd definitely be interested to hear the songs unreleased from that era.

Interesting about-turn from the band on this, as Wharton's never been a massive fan of those first two albums. Some of the bonus tracks/b-sides from the "Out of the Silence" disc were frankly better than anything they've put onto album since, so be good to hear those added to this package (as they were horribly produced). I kinda agree with the others, although not perfect sounding (the rhythm guitar was way too low in the mix, as was the vocals) the original is a total masterpiece and I regularly debate with myself whether it or EUROPE's "Out of this World" are my all-time fave AOR album.

 

So it's impossible to improve on it, particularly as Wharton's voice isn't that great these days (it was limited at the best of times), and a re-record will only sound inferior so am not sure of the point. I'd have to have it though. :lol:

Yeah, im with you.....sounds like a train wreck waiting to happen, But im curious.

 

If they could pull it off, it could be awesome, esp with some delicious bonus tracks

    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar  
    • New song 'Fearless'.    
    • Feel The Steel - Steel Panther
    • In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
    • Yeah sounding not too bad at all.
    • Yeah, I'll wanna hear the songs in full before I pass judgement, but this could be good. 
    • That's a good point I hadn't thought of. Of course the hospitals are going to treat whoever comes in because it's the right thing to do.  Hospitals don't turn away people that make stupid choices.  I guess what I was saying above was really that it's just hypocritical for somebody who is unvaccinated, gets COVID and then heads to the hospital for treatment.  You didn't trust science and medicine enough to take the vaccine but now you want medicine and science to save you?   Insurance is probably a whole different issue and yes, that's out of control in addition to the whole medical billing system.  Those are issues for another thread
    • Cool tunes, particularly the first 'One.' Nice. I'll check this out. 
    • I'll add it to tomorrow's playlist and allow the hilarity to infiltrate me.
