I first heard Riot at Neil Kayes Bandwagon Soundhouse. He used to play Warrior all the time. I saw them with Sammy Hager, again with Saxon and got to meet them as i helped out with the petition to get FDU released. Nothing after FDU has interested me, but those first 3 albums are simple fantastic.

In an interview a year or so back, Felix said he was going through a storage unit and found all the stage costumes that had come back from the dry cleaners post tour. He also found a tape of unreleased demos that the band recorded.

I have been a Pink Floyd fan since the 70s, when I heard the Nicky Horne show “your mother wouldn’t like it” do the Pink Floyd story on capital radio. We saw Roger in Auckland, NZ back in January and must say it was one of the best gigs I have witnessed. My wife, who is not a Floyd fan was completely bowled over by the visual stage show, his message and his political stand view.

They both sound good when playing Angel songs. Both Frank’s and Punky’s solo efforts were uninspiring to say the least.

Holy heck, Carl, where did that footage surface from. Now all we need is for the Angel at Midnight to pop out of its hiding place.

I have a different version of Rat Race, on a bootleg CD called “Tasty, obscure hard rock from the 70s and 80s”. It has a different aggrangement from the one on the debut. I asked Roger where it’s from and he said it came from “LA Hottest unsigned bands” album.

Firepower is an acquired taste. I remember when I first bought it and got it on the turntable. My first impression was what a let down. After the debut and Diamond is a hard rock, which have to be one of the best slices of hard rock from the 70s. Firepower stayed in its sleeve for many years. I revisited it a few years back and I finally appreciated it for what it was. Rogers guitar playing stood

I think Carl, most people here were not part of the tape trading scene back in the very early 80s, and therefore dont know the significance of A La Carte had on the LA metal scene back in the late 70s. Remember how we wet our pants when the Snow ep was released, i doubt that same reaction would happen today, as it does sound rather dated.Having bought the recent Snow CD. I think thats how peo

I have known Geoff, when he worked in a second hand record store in Croydon. In fact I remember him working at Croydon General as an anesthetic tech. I all ways found him an honest bloke. I heard all the stories and more, but considering he doesn’t come on any sites and can’t defend himself we should keep our thoughts to our selfs.

I have to agree with you on that one, Carl. I remember a lot of people in the tape trading circle raving about Cirth Ungol, major disappointment when I heard it, same for Lazz Rocket.

FDU was recently reissued by Metal Blade. Why for the life of me Rock Candy has reissued it again so soon is mind boggling. As for the others,wouldnt waste my money. D'Molls seriously.

Steve, according to a mate, the sound quality is much better than the WB version. I am happy with my WB copy and besides I am tone deaf and can’t tell the difference, except for the shite Kresendo version of Ozz “No Prisoners” and even these ears can feel the pain.

Sometimes i think reunions are best left as memories. For me the whole package with Angel included the image and stage show.I would hate to see the band turn up and play in jeans and t shirts, then again a bunch of 60+ guys dressed in white would look slightly odd. A band reunion is like going back to the same holiday destination where you had a great first time experience but the subsequent time

I sold a huge vinyl collection, over 3,000 albums due to unemployment, paid the mortgage for a month or two, but sold many rare items. Regret it to this day, but I have to be pragmatic, it would have cost a fortune to ship them out to New Zealand from England when we moved, the house we are in now does not have the space for that much vinyl, and I very much doubt I would play 80% of my collection

Have to agree that Quo in the early to mid 70s were at their best. The Quo live from Glasgow Apollo is a an absolute gem. They lost my interest in the 80s and i have no desire to see them when they play here in New Zealand.
