80's KISS is okay, but I can't really bother when there are better things to listen to. I will *always* be a die-hard fan of Hotter Than Hell. I think it's one of the best "HARD ROCK" albums of the 70's and is criminally underrated in general.



Been listening to Love Drive. The return of Michael Shenker no less. Back from the UFO fold to the other big league. Love-ly cover by Hipgnosis who was to disband shortly.

Scorpions artwork are so sick, and truly legendary.
I need to give 'em another go.

I remember not liking 'em as much as their compatriots and contemporaries : NWOBHM's sole honorary member and speed metal/power metal pioneers + hook masters twin guitar fury that is ACCEPT. But they're not really the same kind and fill different needs so I guess there's room for both of 'em.


-----------------------------

So I listened to Heavy Anthem. Looks like Graham singing, eh? I had misunderstood his stint, I thought he had re-recorded several full albums with them, sort of a parralel Anthem band timeline. So I was quite confused when I heard this album.

That guy can really sing up a storm, eh? holy fuck... no head voice, no falsetto even, just full voice all the way up his register in it's glass shatering, mountain flatenning power. damn impressive...

It was a good listen. production wasn't terribly dissimilar to the OG recordings, and I thought Graham provided good english versions of those songs. As far as ''best of'' type albums go, this is one of the more interesting ones out there, to be sure, due to this twist. and inspired rendition.

Love HTH, their early stuff has a contempory Stones-esque ease I'm instantly at home with... I ignored 'em for a long time, thinking they were more of a T-Rex/Sweet 70s glam outfit, but this is just good rootsy rock music. "Goin' Blind" is a beaut.

Definitely gotta be choosy with 80s KISS, tons of Leppardesque guff in there. All big singalong choruses, no guts. To a lesser extent, I feel the same about 80s Ramones, and late-80s Motorhead and Priest. You can find the odd killer track - ANIMAL BOY stomps heads - but the signal/noise ratio of their 70s prime (and in Motorhead/Priest's case, their post-80s renaissances) is practically reversed.

Gave the full record a blast this evening - only track I think doesn't match the original, at minimum, is Blinded Pain. Feels like he took the opposite approach from the other songs, and held too much back - I can't imagine Morikawa's fuller Last Anthem rendition is at all out of his range.

Otherwise though, it's like a SUPERHARD Greatest Hits set. Especially fond of its absolutely barraging EVIL TOUCH, and Midnight Sun, a track that distinctly gains from the extra muscle, with its midtempo death-march and ominous imagery. They nail LOVE IN VAIN too - Bonnet tends to colour his vocals more broadly than Eizo and Morikawa, which sometimes sacrifices detail - Hunting Time comes to mind - but it works a treat here. Sounds like he's belting a lost track off Rainbow's Down to Earth.

Could call it LOUD WHITE DUDE LABEL, but the whole band sounds like they've been hitting the weights. :lol:

Gave Gypsy Ways its long-overdue listen, LEGAL KILLING is indeed fuckin rad. :cool: I love how it just slams the listener headlong into that hammering, barely-controlled riff... FIYAH Image Image

I would argue that HTH goes beyond that. It's stripped back to Stooges level primitive instrumentation, but sped up enough to fit in with the late 70's. It's not exactly proto-punk (too conventional), but it's damn close to being it with all of it's weird touches. I would put it right alongside Cheap Trick's first LP in that respect.

Going Blind is a really weird track. So weird.

Goin' Blind in particular reminds me of The Saints and Johnny Thunders - that sort of ostensible early punk that's largely just soulful, unvarnished rock n' roll, with the seventies' accumulated gunk sandblasted off.

KISS are an audibly more "serious," polished unit, with Gene/Paul's work ethic and Ace's talents giving them a leg up, but I get the same liberated feel from their early records.

Speaking of early 90s alterna-shite from a few pages back (Hootie & The Blowfish imma kill you*), the era's other great crime was telling the youth that the seventies were all about cheesy excess. I was fortunate to have archetypal "rock uncles" who made sure I got my Sabbath, Zep, Deep Purple and Priest essentials, plus a good bit of Motorhead and Ramones, but holy fuck, you might've thought it was AOR all the way down. Then the early 00s roll around, aaand "hey, kids! check out the authentic new sounds of The Strokes and The Vines and ("definitive article" ad nauseams)

Not to go all "BORN IN WRONG GENERATION MAAAN," I think 90s kids with proper guidance had it pretty good. Image

Aww yeah, another of their choice "wake the fuck up!" records. DANCING ON THE BRADE Image

"Problem, officer?"

Image

Sadly this isn't actually theirs, just a soundtrack tie-in (HENTAI KAMEN apparently), but I'll always treasure it. :mrgreen:

*in truth, I don't think Hootie, Blues Traveller, Dave Matthews etc are the worst music, but my god, where I grew up "stranglehold" doesn't begin to describe their radio presence.

Love the Saints! I have that one album of theirs, (I'm) Stranded. Fantastic time. I'm a fan of NY Dolls, but I haven't yet really given much time to the solo Thunders stuff. I have a friend who's really into it and I heard some. Apparently, people who like Johnny T also tend to really dig The Swell Maps and Nikki Sudden. So you might get into that jive if you haven't already.

Yeah, I agree. KISS was a polished band. I think that's one of the reasons why I like HTH. It's produced less slickly than later KISS, but it's more developed that the first KISS record and the songs are more memorable. Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate polished when it's done correctly and with the right kind of band. KISS is a basic HARD ROCK unit which is tight and occasionally technically impressive. They are not a progressive unit or a METAL band that benefits from clean production. They need a little bit of that analogue dirt in there and some of that phat tape reel-to-reel playback to really push their material to the correct aesthetic. Fortunately, the early 70's recording studio was standard with what works for them.

I think it really began with the punk rock movement. The 80's metal scene was the last gasp of 70's rock idioms in the US. The burgeoning "alt" rock scene was overtaken by corporate interests in about 1993-94 in the US. That's when we had all the local alt rock radio stations outright purchased by big companies that all got bought by clearchannel eventually (Rupert Murdoch if you don't already know). I think the corporate coop of Alt rock was official when the theme song to "Friends" was a top ten hit on those stations. That's the death knell in my eyes. IAC, the music corporations had to create an US VS THEM 70's rock VS "SHINY NEW ALT ROCK" to give people an artificial reason to reject the old and buy new stuff.

From the non-corporate side of things, we still had "indy rock" and those bands admired good 70's bands like KISS and Cheap Trick, etc. For example Superchunk plugged KISS:

Image

And lots of other bands like that did the same thing. REM famously had NRBQ on their tours in the mid 90's and they would sit in the audience for the sets to bring them fans. Nirvana plugged the shit out of 70's and early 80's rock. Their whole sound was an amalgam of "Everybody Knows This is Nowhere" and "The Man Who Sold the World" filtered through late 80's college rock lofi. The overtly plugged David Bowie and The Vaselines, etc, etc, etc.

For sure. I remember when the strokes album came out and people were like "rock is cool again" and it was weird. I think having the right people around to at least guide your buying choices is crucial. It's easy to get lost in a sea of music when you have no real connection to anything. I can't even imagine what my association to music would be had I not spent so much time hanging out in record stores throughout my life.

I guess I should throw this in the ring b/c it's basically how I felt in the early 2000s (and also because I rarely miss a chance at self-deprecation).

Cheap Trick are so great(and Bun E. Carlos BEAST drummer), and so are Superchunk (I rarely see people mention them. sooooo good. I got so much love for them and praise their gospel to whomever want to hear it)

I don't like KISS personnally.


This Johhy Thunders album (this mix in particular, which is different on cassette than it is on LP and CD) is a fucking banger and I consider it mandatory punk listen :

Anyone that covers I'll Be Your Sister is good peeps in my book. Image Criminally undersung blues-rock banger.

LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER, god tier. Image Indeed, get the cassette mix (or the lovingly restored Definitive Edition). They might've been a killer live unit, but they didn't know WTF they were doing in the studio - either the cassette or Definitive versions fix everything up, gives the snarl and oomph back. Their "Chinese Rocks" kills the Ramones' version, and it's far from the best tune on there IMO ("I Wanna Be Loved," "Going Steady," "Let Go," actually I'm gonna end up naming the whole record... "Baby Talk," "All By Myself...")

Its live companion DOWN TO KILL is worth checking out too, even if (especially if?) a good chunk is just the band arguing with the crowd. :lol:

Fuck! Totally forgot to mention It's Not Enough in the Stonesy rock ballad stakes. Truly lyrical soloing. Shame Thunders was as heroin-wracked as he was talented, poor bastard barely made the 90s.

Nice, thanks! I'm waiting until the weekend when I can really blast my speakers to try out BANG, will cue this up right after it. :cool:

(I'm) Stranded really surprised me... I was expecting Pistols (just about functional pop-punk) but got Ramones (fuckin rock n' roll).

What a fuckin' album eh? This is the TRVE heir to Chuck Berry, Little Richards and Howlin' Wolf. The energy level is just insane, this album has it all. Making the masters proud.


(gotta mention that I'll Be Your Sister is one of my very good friend, and drummer, 's favourite Motorhead track. In his top 5 for sure, he loves that tune. Along with Sacrifice (damn that ride pattern Mikey Dee is hitting, OOOMPH). these 2 have been played by us on bar jukeboxes many times )

Besides being musically an end-to-end killer, the atmosphere on LAMF is an entity unto itself... the "YEAH!" as "All By Myself" roars into gear, the progressively more grinding fret noise in "I Wanna Be Loved"'s riff, the distracted "Was that alright?" that signs 'em off... particularly for a band with all of one studio record, it leaves a filmic impression of barely-containable rock n' roll. It's one of heavy guitar music's happiest recoveries that the masters weren't lost in the smack vortex that bequeathed it.

Ah, Sacrifice. Image the epitome of

Image

Well no, more than half the record is pretty goddamn quick, that jackhammer title track most of all ("WHY DO THEY NOT BELIEVE?!"). But it has one of their most staggeringly HEAVY numbers in Order / Fade To Black. Between those frantic gunning sprints (matched perfectly by the nightmarish narrative blur), you can practically hear the gears grinding. It's a fuckin dog-ugly, aggressively offputting song, but little else beats it when the mood strikes.

Yeah Sacrifice record is real heavy. It's one of my fave by the band full stop. What a fucking kick in the teeth of a '90s comeback of sorts.

Lemmy be like ''Fuck this. That flannel bedecked self-loathin' sappy fuck ain't gonna get us forgotten aboutImage''



LAMF is so stacked. One bit in particular I admire is how Pirate Love clearly inspired a thousand neo-garage outfits. And I'm not just talking 00's revival. But '90s garage punkers too. Stuff like the Ripoffs, or The Sexareenos. stuff that feeds on The Sonics too I guess, which Johhy T. probs liked too. But I feel he went more to the source of '50s rock ' roll. as evident by old timey numbers like It's Not Enough.

It's got nice variety too.

''barely-containable rock n' roll''
, that's a good way to put it

Oh fuck! so jealous that you saw Superchunk (many times to boot)


You guys make me wanna brush up on my Lizzy. Saw a live the other day on YT and I really dug it. First impressions is I thought Phil was charismatic as all hell. but he looked tired (closed to his death so I guess heroin took a toll at this point). Really great compositions and tone and playing. Lots of heart. That guitarist, who ended up in Whitesnake, is a beast too.

I was remarking to Baton a while back, re Live And Dangerous, I was stunned to be reminded that he was only 36. No doubt one of the casualties in Lemmy's reminisces. Image

Dr. Lem... besides his superhuman tolerance for booze and crank, he knew that fuckin horse is rockstar kryptonite. Unless you are Keef Richards obviously. Then it's embalming fluid.

To me, TL is amazing, but I will say they are not straightforward to get into as a band. They started in the late 60's/early 70's time when early Zep was the target for many a burgeoning unit, but Lynott had a penchant for trad celtic music which largely informed their early output. The first three albums vacillate between pho-zep rock and musical experiments to mix hard rock with celtic music, some more successful than others.

Then they had to either stand still or evolve into the new musical landscape of the 1970s. Gary Moore joined them and then left in the mid 1970's when they put out Nightlife, a transitional album that was produced as an R&B record against their will. Only the track "Still in Love With You," recorded with Gary Moore on guitar before the rest of the album really stands out.

They then successfully ditched the softer persona and released a string of killer hard rock albums at the end of the 1970's, eventually regaining Moore as a semi-permanent member. An important point about TL is that they were one the seminal "twin lead guitar" bands of the 70's. Much like 70's priest, they wielded the dualing lead guitars as an effective weapon.


My first album was Jailbreak. It's really, really, really hard to go wrong with.

A number of great musicians made their way in and out of TL. As Phil was a bass player, he kept a pretty sick lineup of guitarists at hand.

The Rockers Soundtrack. It's a bit of a time travel album for me from a specific moment of my past, but it's such a warm feel-good record; not a bad thing to have around these days. (or any days)

The whole thing is fantastic, but it's worth noting Keith Richards (of the stones) was present on the track Stepping Razor. (he was spending a lot of time in Jamaica around then)

thank you, I'd never heard that full original version. 1968! What a time!

this is more my speed lately
Jun Fukamachi – Nicole ('86 Spring And Summer Collection - Instrumental Images)

First I've heard that too. Apparently Fukamachi received some recognition and press in recent years along with a re-issue of this album
"synthetic ’80s sci-fi and tear-soaked piano ballads" sure, I'll go along with that. Reminds me also of Synthesizer Fantasy stuff, Jan Hammer, and Wally Badarou in a way.

I managed to get hold of a Japanese release of Going To Hell by The Pretty Reckless, good album and only the Japanese version has an extra track called "Kill Me" which is firstly awesome, and secondly was intended to be on the album, no idea why it was cut.

Spooky Two is one the greatest late 60's hard rock albums period. Earth-shatteringly heavy. Produced by Jimmy Miller at about the same time he produced Let it Bleed for the Stones.

Good stuff.

Of course, they turned into Foreigner, sort of. That and the singer did "Dream Weaver" in the late 70s. But I actually like that crap too, so whatever.

Sea Shanties album by High Tide ensemble packs enormous punch for the year 1969, too. Although I can imagine someone disliking its depressive mood.
