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.'

 

Check this out Geoff....

Haha, very cool. They could have been a good band. Nice sound quality for that recording. They definitely don't look as cool as they did back in the day.

 

Bone Pony, hey. What do they sound like? They look the part.

The power of people my brother. I started putting up these same band photos up on Facebook. A few band members starting requesting to tap themselves in the photos. So those guys became FB friends. And their friends were also in the same bands, so more more tags on the photos and more old conversations. And I always ask when I talk to someone from a band from this scene if they have demos to share. I have old ROX magazines that featured all of these bands so I have stories of band member changes and all. But most importantly, names. So I search FB and bam..... ask to be friends and ask for demos! Ha

 

That's why Facebook is very cool is some regards.

I am pretty sure the Grounded For Life demo has the same songs as The Art Of Seduction except for the addition of "Nightmares"

 

The Tattoo Taxi guy posted each song as a video on his FB page. I will be ripping each of them one by one and saving them as mp3's. Hope they turn out okay.

Fuzzy Lipstik - 2nd best band name ever (after Dikk Trikkle, of course).

 

Been trying to track down band members in search for their demos and found this: :(

 

Vincent Hungerford, 34, loan officer, singer

May 10, 1998

By Elaine Tassy | Elaine Tassy,SUN STAFF

 

Vincent Anthony Hungerford, a loan officer by day and sometime rock-'n'-roll singer by night, died in a fire May 3 in his Charles Village apartment. The former Charles County resident was 34.

 

Battalion Chief Hector L. Torres, a spokesman for the Baltimore Fire Department, said investigators have determined the fire started in the living room of Mr. Hungerford's home, in the 2700 block of St. Paul St. The cause of the blaze had not been officially determined.

 

Mr. Hungerford, known as Tony to friends, was a loan officer at Edward & Benjamin Financial Services in downtown Baltimore. After hours he often had a different look.

 

He was a lead singer in the now-defunct rock group Fuzzy Lipstick, which played at Hammerjacks and other clubs, and he wore the "rocker garb" -- hair extensions, lipstick and wild clothes, said his mother, Evelyn Hungerford.

 

"He loved Baltimore, the eclecticness of it, the festivals, the things that I think are better than New York," his mother said. "He knew everybody -- he just was one of those young men who never met a stranger."

 

He sometimes played acoustic guitar with fellow musician Brett Loughry, who said Mr. Hungerford also enjoyed playing tennis, golf and pool.

 

Mr. Hungerford made Baltimore his home about nine years ago. He was remembered Friday by about 500 people at a memorial service at St. James Episcopal Church in Indian Head, Charles County.

 

He graduated from high school in 1981 and briefly attended Charles County Community College. He graduated from Towson State University with a degree in visual communication in 1991.

 

He is also survived by his father, Vincent Hungerford; a sister, Pamela Frank; and a grandmother, Julia Hungerford.

I have been talking to original City Fixx singer Kevin Bern. What a great dude! This dude is sending me (via snailmail) a shitload of City Fixx (the original band) music AND video!! Cannot wait to check out this stuff!!

 

Also, I have acquired the Tattoo Taxi demos. Some really good stuff. Trying to determine the track listing on it but otherwise, I have 8 tracks but it's supposed to be a 6-song EP demo. A bit confusing.

 

Mike Beatty (singer of Tattoo Taxi) was also singer for Censored. Trying to get the Censored songs as well.

 

Will keep everyone posted. More ads/flyers on the way too!!

    • Out February 26 on AFM Records. It’s been more than two years now since Bonfire, following the outstanding debut of their current vocalist Alexx Stahl on Byte The Bullet (2017), were unanimously celebrated for their successor album Temple Of Lies (2018). Two years which saw the band rock countless stages at home and abroad before going on to set the bar even higher with their latest offering: Fistful Of Fire is definitely one of the toughest Bonfire albums ever and has been released in March 2020. As everybody knows today, this album release was ill-fated by that worldwide Covid-19 pandemic – store had closed short after the release and the tour had to be postponed and even cancelled in the end. It’s a fact, that the band did not play one single show with their new album to that very day.However the band from Ingolstadt is trying to looking forward. New plans arouse for an upcoming project. It was summer 2020 when the band again hit the “Flatliners Recording Studios” to start recording the new longplayer “Roots”. It’s a magnificent "almost unplugged"-album with 24 tracks recorded completely over again and interpreted in new ways. It includes very young ballads like “When An Old Man Cries” and old evergreens like “You Make Me Feel”, contains old rock hits like “Ready 4 Reaction” and "American Nights" but also arising rock hymns like “The Devil Made Me Do It”, so every fan of this band will find something on this one. On top of that in features 5 brandnew songs that have been created while acrowdfunding campaign as remittance works for fans.With this release and the new campaign on StartNext the band tries to get some money into their empty band accounts and offers quite some musical delicacy with regards to the content. Besides various merch items, living-room concerts, VIP Tickets for their streaming release show and special rarities like original master tapes or guitar amps, the new album “Roots” can be ordered here: https://www.startnext.com/bonfire-back-to-the-rootsLet’s hope for better times, in which live-concerts can take place again and let us support and celebrate one of Germany’s biggest rock bands in alternate ways until that day.   1.  Starin' Eyes 2. American Nights 3. Let Me Be Your Water 4. Price of Lovin' You 5. Comin' Home 6. Ready 4 Reaction 7. Give It a Try 8. Sleeping All Alone 9. Who'S Foolin' Who 10. Why Is It Never Enough 11. Fantasy 12. When An Old Man Cries 13. Love Don'T Lie 14. Lonely Nights 15. Under Blue Skies 16. You Make Me Feel 17. No More 18. The Devil Made Me Do It 19. Without You 20. Your Love Is Heaven to Me 21. Piece of My Heart 22. Youngbloods 23. Our Hearts Don'T Feel the Same 24. Wolfmen
    • Lillian Axe was at the time my favourite band. Poetic Justice might be the best produced and greatest guitar sound on any album I’ve ever heard. Love & War was a bargain bin purchase in 1990...based only on the cover. Turned out to be one of the greatest releases ever...like Hysteria this album has so many epic classic tracks, this album deserved to be a massive hit. The debut was solid, sounded like a Ratt album especially with Robyn Crosby’s involvement. Psycho...was the bands last great release...a change in sound to what we see today from them started on this release. Like Poetic Justice such a well produced and beautifully sounding album...which includes two of the best ballads ever.    In my eyes and to my ears, only Metallica with Lightning, Masters and Justice has another band released such a massive trifecta of releases like Lillian Axe did with Love & War, Poetic Justice and Psycho...
