Recommended Posts

Another of my blind cassette purchases back in 1989. Never heard of 'em but they looked cool and the song titles were good so I took a chance. "Passion" is everything you could love about glammy hard rock from the 80's. Memorable choruses and excellent musicianship, this album includes one of my all time favorite songs "Passion". 

If you've never heard this band, buy it now! It even got a fresh remaster on Demon Doll a few years ago.

One of the best forgotten albums from 1989. 

2 of my favorites...... the only 2 songs on YouTube: (edit: I uploaded and added a few more tracks)

how is the Demon Doll remaster sounding? their remaster of Blonz & Lixx Array didn't sound really any different to me...well not enough that I noticed.

Same as those 2. Not much of a noticeable difference. I will say it's a bit more punchy.

Interstin'...don't think it did...If I remember from around that time suncity released quite a few albums from the likes of Dirty Rhythm, Big Guns . Johnny Crash & Slash Puppet...but don't remember this seeing the light of day...maybe someone has more info,I know that suncity still sell disc through an ebay seller but the same stuff as before and very expensive.

    • Yeah, sad news. Even though she was a quiet achiever in that group with Stevie getting most of the attention, she sings Lead on two of my favourite "Fleetwood Mac" tracks. "Little Lies" is a Killer. R.I.P.      
    • For me, "Run-D.M.C." in '88 on their "Tougher Than Leather" tour when I was 16. A bit left field, but I loved these guys in my early teens. They weren't afraid to embrace Hard Rock guitars in their music.    
    • I was there too mate. You can't beat the atmosphere of a concert "in the round". I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.
    • Keep a lid on it 
    • This one looks like a fun ride....  
    • I keep sticking with the band but my initial thoughts are that this is basically hookless. I sure hope this was just released as the first single cause it is loud and fast and isn't considered the best song on the upcoming album.
    • GENERATION LANDSLIDE (Cold Sweat / Lillian Axe members) – Ruling The Street Scene (2022) online sources · NOVEMBER 28, 2022     Comprising former members of both Cold Sweat and Lillian Axe, Las Vegas’ hard rockers GENERATION LANDSLIDE release their debut album ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Fronted by Anthony White, formerly of Cold Sweat and Cold Gin, GENERATION LANDSLIDE is a whirlwind of ’80s and early ’90s-influenced American-style melodic hard rock, complete with big hooks, singalong choruses and a feel-good vibe that continues throughout the entire ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Produced by White, the album kicks off with the ferocious ‘Little Miss Lonely’, then ‘Feel the Sensation’ follows with heavy gang vocals telling the story of finishing your day job and feeling the anticipation of going wild from seeing your favourite band in concert that night from a spiritual way. ‘Love and Pain’ relates the ups and downs in every relationship and the emptiness of being alone and ‘Are You Out There?’ is a tribute to the late Thin Lizzy bassist Phil Lynott. Highly Recommended   01 – Little Miss Lonely 02 – Feel the Sensation 03 – Nite Time Magic 04 – I’ll Keep Movin’ Along 05 – Love and Pain 06 – Are You out There 07 – Sweet Ellie May 08 – The City on the Edge of Forever 09 – Me in You 10 – Standing in the Rain Anthony White – lead vocals, lead guitar Sandy Stein – guitar Jonathon Swanson – bass Ken Koudelka – drums   BUY www.amazon.com/Ruling-Street-Scene-Generation-Landslide/dp/B0BFBV9HN2
