I know somebody else on here had heard this EP, and loved it as much as I did, yet another obscure bunch of nobodys that got nowhere, and put out an absolutely awesome EP while doing it, give this track a listen and see what you think of these guys, once again, a cassette transfer, I did the best I could with what I had, I think it's alright, they did record in extreme stereo though, so you'll just have to get used to that part of it, thats not something I did, check this one out!

Nice! Reminds me of someone but I can't put my finger on it so I'll go the easy way out and say it sounds a bit like early RATT.

 

No they do sound a lot like Ratt, especially that song, I guess Eric Carr took them under his wing, they have a batch of finished demos he produced out there somewhere, I have only found 2 of them, and they fucking rock, good band boy, to bad he couldnt have ever gotten them into the machine, he had a good ear for talent I noticed, he was also behind the almost completely unknown, but extremely kick ass Phoenix Arizona band called Drive, im sure you've heard them though.

Yep, they totally sound like a band I can't pinpoint either. A band who had unreleased demos on the scene I believe...

I just discovered they have released this album and the unreleased album on 1 disc, I don't suppose anyone of you has heard it? Or has it?

Is it two full albums, or is a 5 track EP from 1984 one of the recordings?

It may be Black N' Blue, but they've plain and simply stolen some early Motley Crue riffs along the way too, lol.

I've heard the EP and the album and to be honest I'm pretty lukewarm about it all, but always cool to find stuff like this that I missed the first time around.

Just listened to this one straight through...

I LOVE IT!

So very 1984 (hard to describe if you weren't actually listening to this style of music as a teen in 1984).  Yes, Geoff, a LOT of early Motley Crue vibe.  RATT demo as well... VERY Ratt-like! 

Damn I miss my high school days!

I'm just interested how the sound is, the EP was well produced but I only had the tape did the CD turn out ok?

Not too great, unfortunately. Very demo-ish.

    • President Joe Biden's approval ratings have hit an all-time low for him at 36%, which is worse than former Presidents Trump and Obama ever had in office.
    • Really looking forward to this one.  I ordered the (2) CD set.  I already have the original TFAWIUTB.  
    • No atheist denies love is a thing. It has chemicals that make it happen but that closeness between human beings is clearly a thing and it feels good. It's also an essential part of pair bonding and the raising of the next generation.  You believe in life after death. I do too. I look at it every time I see my children. My part of the cycle of life ends when I stop puffing though.   
    • When it comes down to it, it is the love that matters. I feel the love of Christ in my life. I feel the certainty that He loves me. An atheist says that does not exist, it's imaginary. You even deny love to even be a thing, it's a chemical, it has no meaning. You walk outside, you see trees, you hear birdsong, and it means nothing. I see beauty everywhere I go, the beauty of Christ and His creation. I know beauty can be corrupted. I know evil exists. I know there is death. That is free will, baby. A person chooses to do what they do. Do I care if you believe what I know to be true to my core of being? No, not really. It's like someone saying to me "Def Leppard's Pyromania sucks". I know the music moves me and I love it. With Christ in my life it is that feeling x 1000. If it angers you that I have this love, as it seems to for some here, I can only apologise. It would be like not breathing to deny it. If that hurts your feelings cause once upon a time some church or Christian hurt you, I can just say, don't blame God for the followers. Evil appears in every element. Humans are fallible. Humans do bad shit. I am only responsible for my own soul. Do I want God to come down and intervene in every evil? Hell no. I love that we are free to choose. Forcing someone to love you is not love. Also, how about people be responsible for what they choose to do rather than blame God? You say there is nothing but death and darkness at the end. I know this is just a plane of existence and death has lost its sting. Again, I stress, I don't care if you agree or not. I'm not here to judge you. You are free to choose. I just ask for the same courtesy that you accept I don't share your views and that you can move past your hatred for that choice (not all on this site, just some).
    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position.

    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
