Holy crap! What an insane f*cking great song! Opening track ‘I’m Lookin’’ is simply the best hard rock song I’ve heard this year! It starts with an okay harmony chorus (the only time there are vocals on this song), but then the ear cracking riffs and mind splitting grooves gives me a knot in my red swollen neck. Damn. What a terrific piece of hard rock Valhalla! Then I realise the song is already recorded in 1978…

Yes, this band with simple souls are completely unknown, but have the right sense for awesome hard rock, but created this during the years 1972-1983. They never managed to release an album. Until now, almost thirty years after their split up. The recordings date from 1978 and 1979, including one song 1975. That latter one is by far the least interesting one with (despite the fitting album title) obligate rock & roll rhythms. The rest is classic seventies hard rock style, with a strong vocalist (even nice harmonies in the Beatles tribute ‘Beatle’) and a high octane energy drive…….
