Profile This swedish band has released a couple of albums, as far I know only published and distributed in UK, and now out of print. Hard Rock (melodic) style, good riff fueled rockers and laid back acoustic ballads. probably their best moment coming with ‘Minute By Minute’, with a catchy melodic chorus. Title track offers a sticky riffing, while ‘Blue Light Lady’ has AORish pretentions. The ballads ‘Flowers In Her Hair’ and ‘Absence’ aren’t bad at all. But some fillers can be found. The cover of the classic ‘Jailhouse Rock’ is awful… Anyway, a decent rarity, well played and produced. Bassist Pontus Egberg later gained international success as part of Lion’s Share and The Poodles. (Later released as Dead Man’s Tan in 1994).
