again not to confuse production with style.

Vega is poorly produced....we all know that.

White Widdow is well produced imo (ie everything clear and audible, nothing buried, not muddy) BUT they have opted for a stripped back sound. Almost like no rhythm guitar at all. That is their choice at the end of the day and you either like it or not. But you cannot criticise WW for bad production cos it's actually ok.

As for Midnite City. Yes its better than last time, yes it's perfectly acceptable.....but it still annoys me.

If it sounded like Creye this would be easily no 1 this year.

As it stands for me it probably won't be and that just irks me. 

Yeah, I think I agree and believe I have acknowledged what you speak of. Yes, Vega sounds like shit (drums are pathetic) but I did also acknowledge that WW seemed to be their own doing. Considering their best albums and how those albums sound, I don't get it... just don't understand why they did it. 

It's definitely puzzling to ponder why Creye can sound like a million dollars and these guys can't. :(

Got the cd with mini poster/pin from Japan. Also a killer tee from Rob.

 

Great sound this time and killer tunes! Rob is a human song generator/Turing machine. Also he knows well how to embellish  each song making it interesting!

Ok, so this is a bit off topic, but just picked up a couple more Teenage Casket Company albums and this one was on Still standing.

At first I was like "Holy shit, a Southgang cover" then I realised it that while the original was actually Jesse Harte singing, it was on the Erik Turner - Demos for diehards. Makes it a fairly unusual song to cover, but they did a great job.

Always loved this song, and yeah, that's a cool version. I had no idea this band existed, so thanks for the heads up. Definitely something I need to check out, thought I have a feeling these won't be easy to find?

Holy shitballs, it's pretty much just rawer Midnite City. When were the albums released and how many are there? I must own.

Jeezus wept, these things are impossible to get. Looks like Spotify or re-mortgaging your house to buy them on iTunes are the best options. Only a few CDs on eBay, all very expensive. :( Where'd you get them from, Howdy?

They did change style a bit over the years. Started out more Marvelous 3 style, and kinda transitioned into a proto-Midnite City towards the end. They were released between 2005-2016 when they called it quits.

I got the compilation and Eat your heart out off Amazon if I remember correctly, Dial it up I just got off Discogs and Still standing I luckily found on eBay cheap last week.

I also have their last album being sent to me by their bassist, Rob Lane. Never thought I would find that one as apparently they only made 50 and were sold at a gig.

 

Discogs is probably your best bet but Still Standing and Left for dead are gonna be the toughest ones to find.

 

 

I think you can hear what I mean about Marvelous 3 in this song

 

And of course they have ballads too

Thanks for the info. Without knowing it was a compilation, I picked up that one from ebay, but that's cool. That will do for the early stuff. 'Still Standing' sounds like the one I'll be really interested in.

    • Bon Jovi , everything released after 'These Days' and Def Leppard , everything released after 'Retro Active'....
    • First single from the new upcoming album. I dig it.    
    • I do enjoy that. So will this album actually ever be released, or is it just a song every month or so until we have 10 tracks? Feel like half a year ago this started being rolled out... 
    • Sad to hear. R.I.P and thanks for being a part of some magical tunes. 
    • I'd forgotten about these guys, but glad to see they're still at it. Cool song - something worth anticipating. 
    • Just listened to their new album. Very pleasantly surprised. This is good stuff. Arguably slightly samey but highly enjoyable.    Will have to dive into their back catalog.  Really like this track.     
    • This is the second single from the upcoming album "Dying Breed" due for release on Sept. 13th. Very good stuff from France.    
    • I'm not sure if this has been shared or not but Heavens Edge bassist George "G.G." Guidotti has passed away.  I was sad to hear this.  I love this band.  I actually stumbled across their release after it came out while I lived in Japan.  I didn't know who they were or heard anything from them.  I picked it up blindly and it blew me away.  I loved it so much I picked up the Rock Candy Records remaster of it and still play it often.  Below is post from the band on their webpage.  RIP GG and thanks for some great music.   August 20, 2019. It is with great sadness that we are announcing the passing of our brother George “G.G.” Guidotti who succumbed to lung cancer on Sunday, August 18th 2019. He was 57 years old. We met George in the summer of 1987 as we were putting the band together, and our lives would never be the same again. His impact was immediate. Once George joined the band, we knew the five of us would be set for life as brothers no matter what the rock and roll world had in store for us. George took the band’s stage show to the highest of highs. He never settled for anything less than the best for every one of us because he wanted our audiences to leave feeling their expectations were exceeded night after night. No one appreciated the audience more than George. For George, it wasn’t just enough to give it 110% on stage, he never let up off stage as well. If there were people laughing, or a good time was being had around the band, there was no question who was at the center of it all. George. Everywhere he went he was the catalyst for complete and total hilarious, rowdy insanity. But George was also thoughtful and compassionate. He would go to the ends of the earth for people in need. George was not perfect, as none of us are. But with George, he never hid his imperfections. He wore them on his sleeve out in the open for all to see. He was honest about the lifestyle he lived. When told he had lung cancer, he said to all of us, “What the hell did you expect?? I’ve been smoking since I was 10 years old!!” And then he laughed the way he always did. He didn’t want to go. But he knew his time on this earth was going to be cut short. For those who saw the second go ‘round with Heavens Edge, you saw a guy in George who defied aging. He was more energetic in his 50’s than most people are in their 20’s. His smile, ridiculous energy and pure love for being on stage reminded us that the band actually did “make it”. We made it because we found our brothers for life. We made it in the areas that count the most and we have George to thank for that. George “G.G.” Guidotti was a rock star. He didn’t make the money that some do. But he was a rock star just as much as any of them can be. We are going to miss him. Mark, Reggie, Steve and Dave    
    • Has anyone every come across or heard this body of work?  It was released in 1999 and consisted of Steve Brown and P.J. Farley (both from Trixter and 40ft Ringo), Maz (40ft Ringo) and Rich ???. There were 5 tracks on it and two untitled bonus tracks.  It was an independent release from the band only available in CD-R format. I'm trying to find out what they sounded like and if anyone has one of these available.
