Quarterflash

I know you guys, this is very very odd, but upon my new ventures into my new life, I have also been trying new tunes, and a very special one I happened on the other day was the band Quarterflash, the album? Girl In The World from 1991, it takes a very special sound for me to truly dig a chick fronted album, this album started off so well, and then just kept going, she doesn't have any of that snarky irritating, or excuse my language, bitchy sounding snarly snag in her voice, these are just excellent female sung pop\melodic songs, a far cry from the stereotype Quarterflash I had in my brain, and I fully endorse at least check out the 1st track, another song I absolutely love, and you may have a hell of a time locating it, but if your into a chick singing in a killer pop\rock outfit type setting, would be going back to 1991, with a band called Rebel Train and a song called All Around The World, never been able to hear the rest of the disc, but that song is an all time great, for those who care, I sure hope a few of you do, as you may genuinely enjoy it, thanks for hearing me out, you guys just rule, my best buds, rock on guys and gals.

Ha! Funny this comes up cuz I randomly picked up a Quarterflash best-of at a thrift shop just a few months ago. I got it mainly for the songs "Harden My Heart" and "Take Me to Heart," which I remember from MTV back in the day. The rest is a little too slick/wimp rock for me, tho the track "Take Another Picture" has a nice hook too.

Never heard of them but I'll try them out.

 

You've never heard of Quarterflash, Geoff? How old are you, bro? :)

 

Anyway, this is a local band from right here in Portland, Oregon. I remember them from WAYYYYYY back before they broke nationally when their name was Seafood Mama (that's like late 70's when I was in grade school).

 

Of course they hit the big time in the early 80's with HARDEN MY HEART, but they have quite a few other cool tunes when you need a break from the Motley Crue's of the world. Incredibly they're still together and play locally often.

Great band with all their albums worth checking out. The debut is a bit of a classic, but they are all pretty consistent.

Ordinarily, I'll run 10 miles to get away from most songs with sax on them, but back in '82 or '83 when I first heard Harden My Heart on the radio, I was captivated by that haunting sax riff by the singer, Rindy Ross. I don't know why, but to this day, I still get a shiver from it. Maybe it's because I was around 20 and having a blast at that point, but whatever the reason (probably great memories of the best of times), it grabs my attention every time I hear it.

I'm an ancient 36 now, and they were probably a bit before my time... but that's not stopped me before... just haven't heard of them before. Not sure they would have had any hits here in Australia either. ;)

So your in Portland? do you remember Rebel Train? the song all around the world? I understand the comparison to maybe Lone Justice but not Quarterflash!

 

This is that Quarterflash song I liked!

Also from Portland Oregon, Rebel Train, All Around The World, would love to hear the rest of this disc, this song was off a sampler I received back when I DJ at a station in Boise Id, Was always suprised this song never got any notice, I liked it anyway, my station manager never liked it like i did.

    • Some guy created a video on YouTube saying Chez Kane should be the new singer, but she has shot that down as well.
    • New album 'Kings Of The Revolution' out June 14th.
    • I really should use one of my editing software to have an MP3 without it. I separated the two versions of Gone again by PC69 years ago, but for some reason never edited this. Should be able to cut most of that 3 mins and fade the song out.
    • From Lions Pride Music: Nightfox emerged from the musical landscape of Trondheim, Norway, as a dynamic fusion of synthwave origins morphing seamlessly into the hard-hitting realms of 1980s-inspired hard rock. Founded in 2012, the band initially embarked on a journey rooted in synthwave aesthetics before embracing the electrifying energy of hard rock around 2017.   Driven by a relentless passion for the roaring riffs and blazing guitar solos reminiscent of the golden era of rock, Nightfox found its true voice within the spirited soundscape of 80s rock. What began as a synthwave experiment organically evolved into a full-fledged hard rock powerhouse, propelled by the inherent inclination of their compositions towards rock's anthemic essence.   The band's evolution culminated in the creation of a diverse repertoire of instrumentals, laying the foundation for their debut EP slated for release in 2018. However, personal circumstances necessitated a postponement, prompting a pivotal realization within the band that vocals would elevate their sonic tapestry to new heights.   Between 2019 and 2020, Nightfox embarked on an intensive songwriting and recording spree, breathing life into their compositions through the addition of poignant lyrics and powerful vocals delivered by a seasoned hired singer. As the album "White Cobra" began to take shape, the band opted to release their songs sequentially, with the debut single "Ride the Sky Tonight" igniting a spark that caught the attention of Lions Pride Music record label.   With Lions Pride Music extending a record deal, Nightfox found themselves propelled into the limelight, abandoning their original release strategy in favor of a cohesive album experience. In June 2021, the world bore witness to the electrifying debut of "White Cobra," a sonic odyssey that garnered critical acclaim, widespread airplay, and sold-out pressings within months of its release. Buoyed by the success of their debut, Nightfox set their sights on the creation of their sophomore album, "Chrome Tiger," a testament to their unwavering commitment to the legacy they've forged. Scheduled for a worldwide release on August 30, 2024, "Chrome Tiger" promises to further solidify Nightfox's position as torchbearers of the hard rock resurgence, captivating audiences with their infectious energy and unbridled passion for the genre.   Nighfox is: Vocals: Felipe Del Valle Briceño All Instruments & Programming: Erik Winther
