From what i understand the 'upcoming' release is actually the 'resurrection' album after being re-mixed. Craig did say he took in everyones comments on the album (that it was too lite on), and he did say he was gonna re-mix it with a better rock sound. Apprently the guy that did it last time was chasing a commerical raido rock sound, as opposed to a rock band sound.

 

I actually got to spend a few mins in the studio when he was just casually playing around with mixes and he was putting much more power into the sound, bringing out the guitars and drums, etc. That was only a bit of playing around though, so not sure how it ever ended up.

 

Last i heard i think he was in discussions with the label that runs classic rock magazine. Not sure if this ever went ahead though.

Brilliant CD. By far one of the top 5 albums to ever come out of Australia, imho.

 

You reckon it's up there with Rolf Harris and Craig McLachlan's albums? Seriously?

And don't forget Indecent Obsession - my all time favourite Aussie band.

I'm assuming this was said in jest... the sad thing being that I actually dig their stuff even thought they lean towards the poppy side. They got very little airplay here in the states.

Don't ask Geoff what the music sounded like. He just had the wall poster.

Haha. Yeah, in my internet search yesterday I actually heard one of their songs and it sounded like the kind of 80's pop here I could imagine some doods digging. I can't really remember them well, but I do remember 'Say Goodbye' was catchy as hell. Silly 90's pop nonsense, but catchy.

 

I did have a lot of wall posters, but they all got covered in jizz to the point where I had to remove them all. :(

One of the first "boybands" actually. They predate The Backstreet Boys, and still had a bit of an '80s vibe. Given what followed, Indecent Obsession reallys should have been bigger.

If it makes you happy, Dan, they were pretty massive in Australia at the time. I totally remember seeing them all over RAGE (Aussie music show) when we were kids.

I made 4 random picks from my collection this morning including BB Steal's debut. Man what a classic disc.Shame it was very evidentially a once off. That song there is okay-ish. At best...

I guess this is from the remixed 'Resurrection' cd...

For some reason I still have an autographed single of Heartbeat Away.

Been listening to this album recently.

A great disc (On The Edge)

They borrowed heavily from Def Lep Hysteria on many songs, particularly Precious Love.

I didn't know about them until 10 years after "On the Edge" was released.  They had minimal publicity in the U.S.  As you mentioned, good album, and worth checking out, especially for Def Lep fans.

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound! Watch the video "Distance Between us":    
    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
