Britny Fox to Reunite

Recommended Posts

Mentioned on Blabbermouth, and then here was Dean's Facebook status from this past Saturday:

 

"Dean Davidson is putting his Original Band "Britny Fox" back together. with a New Studio Album & Tour, & Deal. Dean will be meeting with Lou Dangeli for All Ages Sunday Documentary on May 24th. Johnny Dee & Dean are making plans to meet in a few weeks to go over plans for the New Year. Also, Plans are being made to meet with Bassist Billy Childs. Stop back for updates!"

 

I think with Dean they had some of their best songs ever, but for consistency's sake I really liked the Tommy Paris stuff... that is, until they released Springhead Motorshark... gack...

Agreed, but 'Spring your cock in my face' was a disaster. So let's just hope they're opting to go with the 'Bite down hard' sound as opposed to the 'Springhead Cybersharks from Space' route. It would have been nice to have the guitarist on board too. Michael Kelly Smith or something, was it?

I don't get my hopes up for any of the bands from the "heyday" releasing anything today. Most of the newer stuff is pure shit.

It would be even more awesome if they got Dizzy Dean involved in some capacity.

No it wouldn't, he's shit. Paris and Childs were the main songwriting team from BDH which is their best album and one of my favourites.

:lol: I like that. I agree - I do like the first two, but 'Bite Down Hard' is easily their best album... easily. And Dizzy's voice is an abomination.

I would rate Boys In Heat as their best overall with BDH a close second. I love the debut as well, especially the version with Livin' On The Edge.

I don't think I've ever heard this song. Nice tune for sure.

 

 

Anyone got an MP3 to hook a brother up with?

Boys In Heat is one of my favorite albums. I love Dizzy's vocal style. And after listening to Jillson a lot recently I can see why they got him as a replacement. I haven't listened to Bite Down Hard in a long time. At the time I did I wasn't that impressed.

Perhaps I was a bit harsh - there are a few great songs on the first two discs but Blackeyed Susan is terrible. I'm also one of the few who thought Springhead Motorshark was decent which is why I just know this new album will be worth the wait.

    • Cool tune - massive s/t album type vibe to it. 
    • Could be. I think they have better distribution in Europe.
    • Trace - Line Of Fire Passion Play - Time Stands Still Mike + The Mechanics - The Singles 1985 - 2014 (2 CD) Frameshift - An Absence Of Empathy Lion´s Share - Dark Hours + 1 Platens - Between Two Horizons No Sweat - Tear Down The Walls (CD-single) Texas - Tired Of Being Alone Acoustic EP
    • Then later by AOR Heaven also I think? 
    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
