Baltimore Rocks -- Blast From The Past


Recommended Posts

 

City Fixx definitely rawks....dude has a slight Taime Down tone to his voice...

 

Yeah. Kevin Bern is a really cool dude. He's the one who sent me a 2GB stick of City Fixx demos and concert footage. Been playing this shit constantly. Great great band!

 

Those 3 other tracks on my YouTube page (and early in this thread) are with Zachary Taylor on vocals and was towards the end of the band.

 

Super cool.......Kevin Bern rocks!!!! :git:

I am in FB contact with a band manager for both Rumble Street and Miriah. He is going to contact band members in hopes to obtain demos.

 

Also getting closer to getting demos from Mis-Fit/Mr. Right.

Just got demos from RUMBLE STREET. But the odd thing is, I have a review of their demo from ROX and these songs are completely different than the ones reviewed. So this must be a later demo. Very hard to track down the singer Marc Savage, but I did track down their guitarist Stephen Jones. He hooked me up with 5 tracks.

Just heard from drummer Joe Piccirillo from Bad Love (and later Rex Hunter). He says he has one more Bad Love demo tape left. He is going to look for it and send it to me!!

Just spoke to Aubrey Bradley from Korupt. Didn't know he was a member of RUMBLE STREET at one time. And he has a copy of their demo tape that he's going to send to me. Here is the review from the songs I was talking about!!

Found a review of RUMBLE STREET's demo in ROX:

 

Rumble Street Rumble Street

 

With the current glut of L.A. glam/biker rock clones in the market, Rumble Street are an easily forgotten band. The band member do display promise, but their creative direction won't do much to move them into the spotlight. . .or my cassette deck.

 

Their five-song demo begins with "Open Road," a mid-tempo, basic progression grunge ballad. I felt like I was walking in molasses waiting for this open road to lead somewhere. It never did.

 

The next cut is "Go All The Way," (Careful, the titles are out of order on the J-cover!), which opens with a cool tom tom pattern then breaks into something too L.A. Guns-ish. The convincing erotic moans did get under my skin, though.

 

"Rumble Street," the third track, is a grinding city sleaze tune. This one is furious urban noise that made me see steam rising off the asphalt and pushers on the corner.

 

Next up, "Heat Of The City" has all the basic components of a good hard rock song, but wasn't nearly as fresh or convincing as "Rumble Street."

 

Last, but not least, "Need Your Love" as an interesting combination of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way" and the Gunners' "My Michelle." This cut best displays vocalist Mark Savage's ability to hit those banshee wails, and is, ironically, about the most original piece on the demo.

 

All told, this demo does have its merits. The songs have a street feel and the recording is fairly tight. But the main problem here is that Rumble Street's sound is too common, and in the city of a thousand bands, you need a lot more than a so-so demo to keep from getting buried under the pile.

This is not either of the Hard Knox bands that are listed here on the main site. I think the one Hard Knox who released "Psychos R Us" was from Utah. The other Hard Knox band released "Combat Alley" in 2002 on Perris Records, was based in Tennessee.

 

This is Baltimore's HARD KNOX:

 

Ross Hancock: Vocals

Jimi Tant: Guitars

Paul Bobbin: Bass

Chris Heuer: Drums

 

Tracklist:

 

1. Where Did I Go Wrong

2. Sleeping Alone

3. Take Me Away

4. Who'll Take My Place

 

Extras:

 

Sleeping Alone (rough mix)

Take Me Away (rough mix)

Where Did I Go Wrong (rough mix)

Who'll Take My Place (Live)

Wind (Child's Play cover) (Live)

 

Out of interest what year were these tracks recorded?
