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...

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.

    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • 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
