Profile A very obscure album from The Lost, an Manhattan, NY based hard/blues rock band. The band were signed to Epic and toured the US extensively during the early nineties opening for bands like The Black Crowes and Foreigner. The band’s core was comprised of Lucas Janklow on vocals and guitar, Nate Schrock on guitar and backing vocals, Gerry Stanek on bass, and Frank Araneo on drums. This album was produced by Richard Robinson in The Hit Factory, New York. “It’s 12 songs of hard-edged rock that spark with talent, raw energy and tight cohesion”.

A couple of the songs on the disc didn’t quite measure up to the quality of the rest  but overall it’s got a lot going for it. I particularly liked “Bijou Dreams”. This is mainly straight up rock from a band that doesn’t rely on gimmicks. The Lost has been touring for over a year, playing with everyone from the Ramones to Mr.Big. After this set, the band packs for the trek to home base Manhattan. The album also include a hidden song as a bonus titled “Are You Experienced?” that is a cover from Jimi Hendrix.
