  • A great, alas mostly forgotten, hard rock/glam band from those distant days of the early 80s. From the raucous, rampant energy of “Motorvatin’” to the sad, heartbroken lament of “Don’t Never Leave Me” (re-arranged and recorded on their final album, “Two Steps from the Move”); from the bluesy, nightmarish howls of “Taxi Driver” (no, this is no ode to Travis Bickle) to the terrific covers that end the set: “Lightnin’ Bar Blues,” “Under My Wheels,” “I Feel Alright” (actually it’s the Stooges’ “1970″) and “Train Kept A-Rollin’,” this is a terrific CD, and a bargain! When compared to other glam rock/metal bands of the same era (you know–Crue, Ratt, etc) those other guys don’t stand a chance. About ten years ago I saw the live video for this, and it’s amazing; they cover “Blitzkrieg Bop” too! Rock’n'roll this straight-up is a refreshing shot that burns!
