Profile Amongst the many rock bands with this same name, we have this Love Child from Austria. Founded in Salzburg around 1988 by guitarist / vocalist Andy Pirchner and ivory-man Freddy Kern, these two musicians have kept band alive over the years and they still are active, having recently played in a festival with Bonfire and Kissin’ Dynamite. Love Child have released few albums locally – all self-managed, but the most known internationally is “Down On Your Knees” from 1998, especially for Melodic Hard Rock / AOR fans. 

Occurs that we find some really nice tunes in this genre throughout the record, like opener “Never Stop Dreaming”, “Cold Blooded Guy”, the solid mid-tempo “Only A Dream”, and specially the pumping “Together We Are Strong”. Love Child also has a harder side on title track “Down On Your Knees”, the killer “Never Go Away”, “Problem Child” (akin early Gotthard) and the groovy ‘n bluesy “Turnin'”.

Despite its pure indie pedigree – entirely engineered, mixed and mastered by Pirchner – “Down On Your Knees” sounds bright and well balanced in frequencies.The album has become one of these ‘rare pieces’ avidly hunted by hungry collectors…
