    I was taken to see Limelight (UK, *original* band) when I was just ten or something as my mum knew the guitarists wife. I recently hunted down their eponymous album and they still rock!

    The Yorkshire trio was the definitive Limelight, their eponymous first album is well worth seeking out. They could cut it live as well as al-la studio, one of their best tracks was 'Redlight', which they performed as well live as they recorded it. Not a lot to look at stage-act visually, but a great sound nonetheless.

    What! Can't we have two separate Limelight profiles? Looks odd seeing my NWOBHM plays with a Russian synth band stuck in the middle. As far as I remember, Limelight were from Yorkshire, not St Petersburg.

    There was an NWOBHM band called Limelight who released an album in the early 80s. They sounded a little like Quartz... But why aren't they properly represented here?
