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.'

Hey what was wrong with my memorabilia thread? ?

 

http://heavyharmonies.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=32241&view=&hl=&fromsearch=1

 

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.

    • greed,very much in the vein(not as good as) Wild Rose and last years  Odyssey Desperado,very safe but why oh why make a lyric video when the lyricas are so silly? Is it just to emphasise it?
    • lol @ the lyrics. This reminds me of that recent band that had very bad lyrics and cool melodies. But it's cool like those bands like Wild Rose, and others I can't think of at the moment. The one that starts with an L? Who knows... but it's nice safe melodic rock with silly lyrics. 
    • And here it is... it's on now?! Oh well, here it is. One of the coolest songs I've been enjoying in 2018, and probably AW's best song to date;  
    • I don't know where we've been posting about new releases from these guys through the years, but they've been churning them out at a decent level. There's a cool tune on the new album referencing this dream of theirs; that they're not in it for success but for the love of the music. Anyway... They haven't been setting my world alight, and no album compares to their debut, but they're okay. Anyway, the new mini-album (7 tracks) is mostly more of the same. But there is one song that has actually set my 2018 playlist on fire, which I think a lot of people here would like.  And, just found out it's not on youtube.   But it's called 'Get It On' and I'll try to post it when it's available. Get your ears on it if you can. It actually may appeal to the synthwave fans here... not that it's a synthwave song. But it's well off the AW beaten track... but in a great way.  This song is quite fine too, though, just to have something to post;  
    • Sounds worth checking out. I will seek. 
    • Yumsex. I still can't for the life of me understand why Steve West didn't play drums on the debut The Defiants album... kinda sad to see him and Bruno apart for what I am guessing might be the first time in their post D2 playing career? No, I lie. Westworld. But generally, the two have been together in everything and I was surprised when Mr West wasn't on The Defiants album. Good to hear he is home again.  And I agree - Eclipse and The Defiants is a nice start to 2019 for sure. 
    • Hmmm. There is a great song in there. But I also hear a bit of POL-ism that actually brings the song back a few pegs. If it was let to run free it'd be great... but yeah, just get rid of any POL influence please. Still, pretty cool tune. 
    • Yeah, I would agree with that as well.
