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.

    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.

    • The police really haven't changed much over the last 10, 20 or 30 years...they just get a lot more negative publicity today...a cop can't fart in public without it being headline news....we are a society of laws, rules and regulations and we need cops to police and enforce those laws or our society is fucked....it's a shitty job most of the time and many people would not want to do it...and remember they are affected just like we are by all the same shit that is happening around us so maybe we should give them some credit and a little understanding....while I'm not a fan of any kind of authority , I realize that it is necessary and we should do our best to support and respect it....that's not to say we should give them a pass when they fuck up as they should be held to a higher degree of integrity and honor when compared to those they serve....
