Profile Ultra rare hard rock debut released independently by this extraordinary band from Victoria BC Playground Hero. Very limited distribution (played at a club called Harpo’s in the late 80’s and early 90’s) and is hard to find. They won a radio contest to record this cd, but broke up soon after. Keyboardist and songwriter Jeff Rud actually gained fame writing Steve Nash’s first biography (before he became a star). The sound of this excellent album is a nice mixture of well known indies like Jester, Dirty Cowboys, Crush, Luv Junkies, Frenzy, Blackshear, Dante Catt and Cutlass. The band also in 1993 released a 3-track demo tape in very limited copies also hard to be found.
