1) Point Blank is an American rock and roll band hailing from Texas. The band formed in 1974 and recorded six albums between 1976 and 1982. Garnering occasional airplay on AOR radio stations, the band is best known for their 1981 hit single “Nicole”.

On their album ‘Second Season’ (imge provided) … With the success of their eponymous debut recording, Point Blank had a reasonable amount of momentum heading into the studio to record Second Season. But rather than rearrange or pepper things up a bit in the recording process, Point Blank pretty much stayed the same as they did for their first record: a five-piece (they ditched the keyboardist) writing songs around crunchy blues guitar riffs that resemble a hybrid of British hard rock (Zeppelin, Deep Purple) and Southern rock. As a result, there really isn’t much improvement over the first album (save for the removal of the cheesy, pun-infected cover art, replaced by the lads in the band “taking it easy” in the backyard, complete with yellow sunlit soft-focus photography).

    The texas southern rock/hard rock band Point Blank is the one I am here for. Their first two records (self-titled and Second Season) are really solid and I'm surprised that they aren't more widely known. Their debut has to be one of the heaviest classic southern rock albums of all time! Fans of old school ZZ Top, Molly Hatchet, and the Outlaws should love it!
