uuurggghhhh ..... Visitors ..... urrrgghhhh yukkkkkkkk

Praying Mantis, Diamond Head, Saracen, Brooklyn, White Spirit, Terraplane - I think are the best of the melodically oriented bunch and ten there's Girl if you're going to lump everything British & c.1980 into a NWOBHM bag and then there's a whole pile of stuff that has no place on this board but is very enjoyable in its own right (Saxon, Mythra, Angelwitch, Weapon etc etc)

Gillan were a great band IMHO, Glory Road was a superb album, Colin Towns made the difference to that band - he was a complete non "rock" player playing in a hard rock band, soundwise he was the antithesis of the (even then) cliched Lord Hammond sound (which isn't to say I don't enjoy classic Purple [and they were great on their last tour]) and Towns' playing with those wierd angular chords that he played... all that and Bernie Torme's unique feedback-ridden style and great vocals ... great album - they lost it though after Torme left ....
