Baltimore Rocks -- Blast From The Past


Recommended Posts

Digging through some of my local ROX magazines from 1990-1995. ROX was a free monthly local music paper that included the surrounding DC, PA, and VA areas.

 

Anybody (besides LVKix) heard of any of these killer bands from back in the day??

Love the ads.

 

I dug the outtro on that Race the Rat clip. Now I want to know what a Tattoo Taxi is and that Temper track was nice. That Sex n Sin track was cool and the outtro lets us know they used to be Sinclair. I'd like to hear Sraight Jacket, Fuzzy Lipstick and Skeleton, but obviously any and all would be nice.

 

More please.

Ooh and the Skeleton is nice too. I find it funny and appalling at the same time that they played a show with a band called Kiddie Porn.

 

Kiddie Porn was Shannon Larkin's band. Larkin played in WRATHCHILD AMERICA and later, Ugly Kid Joe.

Wowser, Retrospect Records take note. Some kinda interesting stuff there - love the old band pics. Oh, and Fuzzy Lipstik - 2nd best band name ever (after Dikk Trikkle, of course).

Certainly better band names, but nice 7 degrees...

Oh, I know some of those. Quade, I was not a huge fan of. Is Skin & Bones the Skin & Bones?

 

I think Vaudville had a lot of potential but the demos I have are all horrible sound quality. I love their song, 'Waiting.'

Cool stuff though...really cool!! I'd be very keen to see more. Been posting some stuff like this on FB lately in a new facebook group I started called - "AOR & Melodic Rock: Treasure Trove". Feel free to chuck some of it on there as well if you are inclined to do so ?

Mainly because I didn't want to steal your thunder in that thread and secondly, these are all bands from one specific area.

Some cool stuff there man. Unbelievable that so many bands can come out of one area...must have been a real happening music scene back then.

    • These guys are exceptionally good. Love it. 
    • For Karpet-Muncher, new song 'Do It All Again'.    
    • Listened to this EP today and this is my gear. Absolutely love this one - every song is amazing. Immediately googled to see if they have a new album coming out this year, but can't see anything scheduled. I did notice they have a new single, which is as brilliant as the stuff on the EP; Great find, mate. These guys are next level, and I will be keeping tabs on anything new they might release. 
    • Release date: 13th August 2021 Catalogue No: ESM356   For all Westcoast/AOR fans out there.

Doug Brons was born into a musical family in Santa Rosa CA in 1963.

In High school Doug formed a band with his brother that drew influences from Toto, EWF, Chicago, Michael McDonald, Christopher Cross and Roby Duke and then later in his teens opened for such acts as Steve Archer, The Call, John Fischer and Denny Correll. Through the mid eighties into the nineties Doug Was caught up in family life but came back in 2016 and recorded “Soulscripted” which was produced by Tom Hemby in 2017 and features Amy Grant, Bill Champlin, Michael Omartian and John Schlitt. “Timepiece” was released in 2019 which features Bill Champlin, Pat Coil, Michael Whittaker and Tom Hemby.

    • Yeah, I like We Were Sharks. Their last album as absolute killer. New one is very good, very consistent. Not as good as the last one - but good stuff.  I enjoyed the first Holding Absence album and saw a lot of potential on it, but admittedly it was just one tune I've shared a few times that really blew me away. The new album is significantly better in every single way, though. My favourite off the debut; Yep, the dudes are all about atmosphere. Massive part of what draws me to them. 
    • From Frontiers: Current The Dark Element (and ex-Nightwish) vocalist Anette Olzon is set to release her new solo album, "Strong" via Frontiers Music Srl on September 10, 2021. “'Parasite' is a song about those who create disaster in this world with their lies, their schemes, their greed and hate. Hiding their intentions behind a respectable facade,” says Anette Olzon of the albums' first single. “Living in a world of a bit of chaos with a pandemic, crazy politics, violence, social media behavior and people venting their opinions upon others all the time is the foundation behind the idea of the lyrics for the album. Musically, I wanted a much heavier album, yet with strong melodies and took my inspiration from bands I like such as Dimmu Borgir and In Flames,” she continues. This will be Anette's second solo album, following 2014's "Shine," and offers a harder, faster musical offering compared to the debut. More importantly, "Strong" stakes a claim for Anette’s well-deserved standing as one of the world's top female metal vocalists.  The music for "Strong" was written and composed together with acclaimed Swedish guitarist and producer Magnus Karlsson. Together, Anette and Magnus managed to create an outstanding collection of songs which showcase Anette’s enormous vocal range alongside Karlsson’s incendiary riffs. The songs are heavy, but still quite melodic and contemporary in their approach to the genre style. Additionally, "Strong" is mixed by Jacob Hansen (Pretty Maids, Volbeat, The Dark Element, etc.).  All in all, “Strong” is an album that masters the borders between heaviness and hookiness, all while showing an artist who doesn't rest on her laurels, but heads boldly into the future.    Tracklist: 1.  Bye Bye Bye 2.  Sick Of You 3.  I Need To Stay 4.  Strong 5.  Parasite 6.  Sad Lullaby 7.  Fantastic Fanatic 8.  Who Can Save Them 9.  Catcher Of My Dreams 10.  Hear Them Roar 11.  Roll The Dice    LINE-UP: Anette Olzon - Vocals Magnus Karlsson - Guitars Anders Köllerfors - Drums Johan Husgafvel – Bass    facebook      
    • Oh man, I thought this was the good Dallas dude and I got excited. That is a nice song, but I can't say I'm a fan of those vocals whatsoever. Cool tune, though. 
    • Jesse James Dupree - Foot Fetish Eurythmics - We Too Are One + 5 (Special Edition)
    • Line-up: John Dallas - Vocals and Rythm Guitars Tom Angeles - Lead Guitar Black Sam Francisco - Bass Andy Philadelphia - Drums and Keyboards   There fixed it.
    • Don't have many physical purchases anymore but this will be one I'll have to have
