Profile Back in 1988, Danny Martinez and brothers, Joe and Rob Marone, came together to create the rock band, Caught in the Act. Soon after, they were joined by Anthony Trujillo. Their seld titled album released in 1989 produced by Aaron Swilley and recorded at Audioworks, Littleton, Colorado. 

From a local agent in Colorado the band in 1990 came to the attention of Axe’s guitarist Bobby Barth who agreed to produce the band’s demo, but it would take five years before the band got the opportunity to released their first songs thanks to a deal with the Swedish label Empire. The band forced to change their moniker due to the Dutch Dance group to C.I.T.A.

The release contain original eight tracks but the last one “Caught in the Act” is a bonus track to the cd vesrion and very rare as it taken from a complilation created by a local radio station in Colorado to promote the local bands. The production is not the best but the songs are good with lots of keys, lovely hooklines,catchy choruses and many backing vocals, close to the style of Phantom’s Opera, Bon Jovi and Danger Danger.

    This original cassette tape included band members Joe Marone on Bass & vocals, Rob Marone – Drums & vocals, Matt Karas – keys & vocals, Danny Skyler – led vocal & lead guitar and Paul Miller guitars & vocals.
    The only member of this original lineup that appeared in any later Caught In The Act (CITA) releases was Joe Marone who played Bass and vocals on the only the first Caught In The Act CD produced by Bobby Barth in 1995. On that first CD the band members were Danny Martinez – Guitar & lead vocals, Antz Trujillo – guitar, keys & vocals, Troy Benson – Drums & vocals and of course Joe Marone. Following this, none of the original members were included on the CITA, Guild of Ages releases. The bonus track “Caught In The Act” was included on the CDR transfer by myself after I discovered it on a Los Angeles radio station compilation of local area bands in the Miller Highlife battle of the bands contest. A copy of the CDR was given to my friend Gabor Klienblosem at STRUTTERZINE magazine as he wanted to write a review of the band. That review is still available on line, however, does contain some minor bits of misinformation. An excellent and extremely rare cassette only release well worth collecting.
