1, 2 KO combinations - "Steelhouse Lane"

I love these two and I'm sure most of you do as well. Full of Class and as smooth as silk.

Where the fuck are these guys! You'd have to think that a third album would be a huge success. Even Keith Slack has done fuck all really since then. A few bits and pieces, but not much.... Frontiers?

I don't know how accurate this is, but I remember reading that Keith Slack is a Drummer by trade. One night, the singer of the band he was with was a no show for a gig, so Keith decided to step up. Apparently no one knew he could sing and were amazed. The rest is history.

There's quite a few recycled tracks on these albums also. Tracks I'd already had by different artists. At least six over the two albums, by my count.

If I was making a playlist consisting of what I consider to be perfect songs, then "Surrender" would certainly be on there, no worries mate.

Pretty much as good as it gets. I prefer the second album for the beefier sound and that it's all new songs... but both albums are flawless. 

Basically everything on both albums are my favourite songs, but 'Still' and 'Seven Seas' are as good as music gets (okay let's throw 'Surrender' in the mix too). 

The bonus track, 'If love should go,' from 'Slaves' should not be left out of the picture either. One of the best on/off the album.

"Son of a Loaded Gun" appears on the Eyes "Full Moon" disc, but it's not on youtube.

Then there's this one from '85.

lol, that's right. And I know that bonus track, 'If love should go' is a Streets cover/update too. 

So let's just say there's less covers then, lol.

Well there you go. I completely missed that "If Love Should Go" was on the Streets debut.

That makes seven covers/updates across both albums and counting.

Great albums both of em , do we count these as covers though? I mean Slamer wrote them didn't he? so they'd be his babies  :)

I reckon even if you've written the song, if someone has performed it before, then it's a cover.

    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
