HALF RICE HALF CHIPS

Howdy people, a little quicker than planned, here's another installment from New & Improved's alternative reality allstar hall of kick ass rock'n'roll fame. This post's early, the next one will be late as a result of my ongoing internet provider saga, so i hope you enjoy this selection, the next one may be a couple of weeks away.
Up first we bring you a nice one-two from our Canuck cousins, some Maple Leaf mayhem from the early '80's for you all.
After spells with FLUDD & SHEARMAN & PEABODY, bassist & vocalist Greg Godovitz formed GODDO with ex-BRUTUS guitarist Gino Scarpelli and drummer Marcus Morin in 1975 debuting with an independent single 'Louie, Louie'. GODDO signed to major label Polydor for their eponymous 1977 album. Godovitz's barbed sense of irony was amply displayed on the title of the follow up in 1978 "If Indeed It's Lonely At The Top… Who Cares… It's Lonely At The Bottom Too!" After the 1979 album "An Act Of Goddo", GODDO signed to Attic for the "Pretty Bad Boy" album and tonight's featured record, the awesome double live effort, "Goddo Lighve - Best Seat In The House", but folded shortly after.
This is Goddo in their prime, in their natural habitat, with guitars set on stun, enjoy.

More Canadian Heavy Rawkin' next from KILLER DWARFS, who were assembled in Toronto, Ontario during 1982. Initially without a name the band's manager dubbed them KILLER DWARFS due to singer Russ Dwarf standing proud at 5 foot 3 inches. The joke stuck and the band played upon their vocalist's diminutive status for the rest of their career. The band was created when Russ (Russell Graham) decamped from OZ to join SPHINX drummer Darrell Miller. Rounding off the band was bassist Ange (Angelo Fodero) and guitarist Bryce Trewin. Signing with the Attic label, they released their self-titled debut album in 1983, and a rather fine record it was too, and much better for the less commercial approach they took at this stage in their career. Grab it right here, it also comes with three bonus tracks you lucky people.

To the US of A next for our next one tonight, BLACKSMITH were formed in Albany New York in 1984 and debuted with this eponymous five song 1986 mini album on their own label. For their second release, 1989's 'The Fire Within' LP on Tropical Records, BLACKSMITH underwent a drastic line-up change ousting vocalist Heidi Smith, bassist Michael J. Marino and drummer Tommy Ray. The new Look BLACKSMITH, centred on lynchpin guitarist David Smith, and comprised singer Malcolm Mania (!), bassist Chris Madsen and drummer Chris Caglione. Blacksmith were pure classic 1980's heavy metal. All power chords, shredding guitar solos, impressive vocals, and thundering drums. Headbanging mania!

awarded "From Akron" an 'A-' and 'pick-of-the-month' in his Village Voice review. The band recorded an album entitled "You ever heard of the Bizarros? Let me Explain. Bizarros began existence in January 1976 in the industrial wasteland fondly referred to as Akron, Ohio, USA, and were each the son of a rubber worker. Their first release was this one, the 4 song "Lady Doubonette" EP on Gorilla Records in 1976. They followed this with a split album on Clone Records called "From Akron", which also featured RUBBER CITY REBELS. The Bizarros then released a self titled EP on Clone Records in 1978, and appeared on the "Akron" Compilation album released in Europe by Stiff Records in 1979. The Bizarros were signed by Mercury Records after rock music reviewer Robert ChristgauBizarros" in 1979 for Mercury Records. They don't really fit in with a lot of the stuff i post here, but i thought you may be interested in this fascinating band regardless. It's guitar music, often laconic and delivered with a wry smile, sometimes hypnotic or unsettling, hard to categorise & impossible to pigeon hole, it's lost treasure for the open-minded and that's why it's here. Let me know what you think, if there's interest, i have more.

Some NWOBHM next, from ALKATRAZZ who hailed from Maidstone in Kent and were fronted by Australian singer Craig Stevens. After coming to the attention of RCA Records they released debut alum "Young Blood" in 1981 and toured as support on a three band package with TYGERS OF PAN TANG and MAGNUM. 1982 saw them release their second & final album, "Radio 5". To promote the albums release the band recorded this four song session for Tommy Vance's BBC Radio 1 Friday Rock Show. These sessions always seem to go down well, this is a good one from a very overlooked band, i think you're gonna dig it.

More NWOBHM for you next, LAST FLIGHT had their track 'Dance To The Music' included on the BBC 'Friday Rock Show' compilation album and the track was also released as the A-side of the band's sole single by Heavy Metal Records in 1981. Following the demise of the band, vocalist Rob Hawthorn joined ex WHITESNAKE guitarist BERNIE MARSDEN in ALASKA. He also contributed lead vocals to the 'Electric Cinema' solo album from KYOJI YAMAMOTO, the guitar player from Japanese Metal outfit BOW WOW. Hawthorn later joined the cabaret circuit as a ROD STEWART impersonator.

Finally tonight some more rare Swedish steel courtesy of our old friend Dom, the lone 1982 single from SERGEANT, "Doubt". The Corosseum describes it thus : "Doubt" is a very unique, very melancholic piece of early melodic Hard Rockin'. Pretty classy musicianship and songwriting skills here, definitely a grower and very far from happy-go-lucky AOR. It's however the B-side "Connection" that truly impresses. We're talking top-class, total NWOBHM-style HM/HR in the style of classics like TRESPASS, GEDDES AXE, ANGEL WITCH etc with some superb harmony soloing at the end. Vocalist Lars Hägglund is a deadringer for Kevin Heybourne and after a few listenings I've come to notice how the song ("Connection") actually reminds me of ANGEL WITCH's "Hades Paradise" at times. Highly recommended!"
What are you waiting for?

So that's the lot for this evening, hope this'll keep you all going until i'm next able to deliver the goods, with luck it won't take too long.

BBC Session much appreciated, as are all posts. Do you have the Taurus session? Thanks also for the Last Flight 7". Looking forward to hearing it again + the Sergeant single sounds v. interesting. Anything that sounds like Angel Witch and Trespass has got to be GOOD. Take care and best wishes, Blofeld

The Bizarros were a pretty good band, so thanks for the post of the Lady Dubonnet EP. Now I'm looking for the tracks on the Bizarros/Rubber City Rebels split LP.
Thanks for all your hard work
