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.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
