Hey.....Rhode Island....that's my neck of the woods.

 

Do they play out? I used to see the bands at 'The Station' before the fire.

 

Now there really isn't anywhere IN RI to see bands....:(

I've also been searching for Skyhigh but can't find it anywhere at all. I've always loved the early Warrant sound, including Dog Eat Dog, even though it's a bit of a departure. Anyway, if anybody has a rip of Skyhigh and can send it to me it would be much appreciated. I would return the favor in some way, shape or form.

Sorry for digging up this old thread but I'm new around here and I'm catching up on old the old stuff.

 

There is a Swedish band called Sky High, formed in 1978, that plays stuff similar to ZZ Top and Jimi Hendrix. They have released a bunch of albums and one of them is a double CD with greatest hits, the second CD, containing demo's and outtakes, is called "Tracks from the Crypt"

 

You can sample some of their songs in the discography section on http://www.skyhighblues.com/

 

I'll shut up now and go see if I can find some more old threads to resurrect :P

Just checking in and saw this thread.........

 

About 2 or 3 yrs ago, I was with this girl who worked with the lead guitarist's (Rich's) wife. Very nice guy and a fine Rhode Island band. I had the pleasure of seeing them live at The Station in West Warwick & I've had the Tales From The Crib CD since then. A good CD, influenced by Warrant. If I'm not mistaken, Skyhigh supported Warrant or Jani Lane on a few dates outside of New England. A CD worth checking out.

 

I contacted Rich a few months ago to see if he had more CDs available & he replied that they were all gone. He mentioned that Skyhigh is now under a new name and does mostly covers.

 

Gotta say, I miss The Station, the RI scene hasn't been the same since. We have Lupo's in downtown Providence but that's not a big draw. Closest thing would be the Palladium in Worcester, MA. Cool thing about The Station was that you saw the same people at all the gigs, whether it was a big act or a local band, and there was never any trouble. Well, until that night.....I was supposed to see Great White that night but never went, lost some good friends that night.

These guys are kinda cool. The lead singer does sound like Jani Lane and I guess the songs are aimed at the style of 'DRFSR' but realistically don't come close. Aside from 'Knife through the heart'... IMO. Cool band.

Nah, don't really dislike anything on this one, mate. Most of it's pretty decent... just not Warrant's standard. :)

    • 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?
