GUITARS FROM MARS (& South London Bars)

"Larga Vida Al Rock'n'Roll"! as Baron Rojo used to say.
Lots to get through in a short space of time, minimal descriptions as a result.
A request from a while back to start us off, this is "Sacrifice" by Joe Step, which appears to be the name of the band, it's not a solo performer. This is their rare as hens teeth one & only LP from 1982 on the CCS label. From Illinois, this is high energy psychedelic Heavy Rawk with awesome guitar playing in Iommi-esque tones. Goes for big bucks if you can find one, no need now, you've got it here for free. Did i mention the guitars?

JOE STEP - Sacrifice (1982) USA


More now from Eveshams glam rock titans Wrathchild, this is a compilation LP of their early EPs which surfaced on the Dojo label in 1985, much to the bands annoyance. Musically, this is upbeat dumb fun, 70's styled glam rock bubblegum schlock with tongues firmly in cheek and confetti cannons set on "stun". Some would argue that they never bettered their early EPs so this is a great way to hear that stuff in one fell swoop, and where else can you hear a song with the awesome title, "Cock Rock Shock"?

WRATHCHILD - Trash Queens (1985) UK


Up next, Canada's Wikka, this is their sole release, the 4 song "Wikka" EP, which crept out on TNT Records in 1988. Featuring former DARKON and ORACLE members, the band split in half just 2 weeks before going into the studio to record this, with the time booked they quickly drilled 2 new members & went in & laid down the songs anyway. Considering the chaotic nature of the set up, this is remarkable stuff, like an amalgam of MAIDEN or WARLORD with something more straightforward & hooky, say early CRUE, with epic bits intact. Nice one, go getcha.

WIKKA - Wikka EP (1988) Canada


Some epic Doomy Heavy Metal now, which comes courtesy of the awesome Dom, font of all things Heavy & Swedish. This is the "Hymn Of The Sinner" 7" by Faith, from 1986. Apart from a couple of earlier demos, (one as "STORMBRINGER"), this was all the band released until they reformed in the 1990's finally bringing us their debut LP, "Salvation Lies Within" in 2003. Apparently that's more in a prog-metal vein than this primitive Doom Rawker, pity, this is some nice primal stuff.

FAITH - Hymn Of The Sinner (1986) Sweden


Staying in the Swedish fjords for the moment, here's another classic slab of primeval black 7" vinyl, this time from the cheerily named Grave. This is their "Screaming From The Grave" single, which appeared on their own Grave label in 1983. This is some fast & furious traditional Heavy Metal in the style of Manowar or Dio, slightly marred 9for me), by some very 80's sounding keyboards. This was all she wrote for the Haparanda based band, as guitarist Jan Granvik was soon after to be found sizzling the six strings for the better known GLORY.

GRAVE - Screaming From The Grave 7'' (1983) Sweden


A couple opf little belters from the NWOBHM vault to finish things off with now.
The first is the "USA" 7" by Skitzofrenik on the collectible Guardian label. Aside from the fact that they had members called Mike Muskett and Steve Cabbage, the 'net has yielded very little info on the band. Apparently they also had two exclusive tracks on the Guardian compilation, "ROXCALIBUR". This is neat stuff, which rocks away quite catchily without ever threatening to blow your speakers, but its hooks imbed themselves in you over time.

SKITZOFRENIK - U.S.A. 7'' (1981) UK


Finally, here's South London's Brunel, with their 2nd and final self released 7", 1982's "Astral Lady". This is great stuff with some tasty guitar lickage and good solid songwriting. Apparently the band had a large biker following at the time, the straight forward hard driving nature of the music being the perfect accompaniment to some rubber burning obviously.

BRUNEL - Astral Lady 7" (1982) UK


That's it for now boys & girls, hope you find something here to fill thy head with rawk.

Love the rare metal, especially Lords of the Crimson Alliance...thought I was the only one who ever heard of these guys. Question: Do you have Black Sheep "Trouble in the Streets"? There are some tracks on Paul Gilbert's website, but not the full album. Wondering if anyone has the full album which they could post? Keep up the good work, and thanks!

Wow! Ogmonster, Thanks for the Black Sheep post! This should bring back some memories. Really appreciate you taking the time to RIP this, and hope a few other people download and check out a "pre-Racer X" Paul Gilbert in action (although he was only on 5 of the tracks). A bit of metal history on this one, so glad I can add it to my collection (and share with others). Until next time...

Sometimes, playing individual chords is not too hard, but when you start moving from one to another, that's where it can get confusing. But to make progress, you are going to need to learn how to switch between chords quickly, almost without thinking. Of course, this takes practice, but once you get into it, you can soon get the hang of it. Once you begin to master this, you can move onto chord progressions.
