was talking to Russ Dwarf on twatter about his new CD, and happened to mention that its about time someone reissued Stand tall again, his answer "stay tuned to my FB and Twitter pages for news....shh don't say anything!".

 

So yeah, I didnt say anything ok.

Wow, I had no idea the reissue wasn't available anymore. Glad I grabbed mine when I had the chance. I personally would love a reissue of the Reunion Of Scribes disc.

Reunion is still pretty easy to obtain. On Amazon UK I can pick that up for £13 at the moment, but Stand tall is always knocking around the £75 or more.

The reissue from what I understand was deleted almost straight after it was released, no more than a couple of years of availability.

I'm sitting here remembering when I first heard them. I went into a record store that had "Big Deal" playing. I was blown away. So I went to the counter had they had a "Now Playing" shelf with Killer Dwarfs "Big Deal" in the "box". I had to own it. What a fantastic piece of melodic hard rock. I bought it instantly.

Would love if Rock Candy reissued their catalog although Weapons and Big Deal reissues are easy to find with the Method songs as bonus tracks.

It's funny how that works. Big Deal can now be found pretty much anywhere, but 15 years ago I had to drive 150 miles to a used cd store buy one. Good thing gas was only $1.20 then. :lol:

I only got into them back in 2008 when I picked up Dirty weapons on a whim to see what they were like, and then ordered Big Deal and Method to the madness a week later as they were both cheap. Took a few years to pick up the debut though as it was always around £15, and I prefer to get CDs cheaper than that wherever possible.

Stand tall I only have as a poor vinyl rip that I downloaded somewhere.

Just looking at Amazon UK, and most of them are all available for around £10 each, so only way a reissue would be worthwhile is if they have some unreleased tracks or something.

I agree but it hasn't stopped Rock Candy from releasing many easy to find discs like the first two LA Guns but I'm happy they did since they do sound better.

And now comes the possibility of a new album, albeit an unreleased one from 1993.

I have that album in perfect sound. It must have been recorded and shelved. In my opinion, it's the best thing they ever did.

I agree, it's a kickass album and it will be nice to finally be able to get an official release of it.

I think I have some mp3s somewhere of that but I can't remember what I thought of it but to say it's better than Dirty Weapons is just crazy IMO....

    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.
    • Tracklist: 1. Super Fine Sugar  2:48 2. Drive It Like I Stole It (featuring Berton Averre of The Knack)  4:25 3. Cherry Cola (featuring Jon Auer of The Posies)  3:50 4. Ex Machina (featuring Jesper and Jacob Binzer of D-A-D)  3:40 5. Pay My Rent  4:25 6. Dirty Earth (featuring Tony Harnell)  4:16 7. Take Me To The River  2:47 8. This Means War  4:36 9.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A. Guns-S/T Bruno Mars-Unorthodox Jukebox Motley Crue-The Dirt Soundtrack Simple Minds-Glittering Prize Patty Smyth-S/T U2-The Joshua Tree    
    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:
