    Most overlooked (pre-) NWOBHM-band... it´s a shame that their self-titled is so gard to get nowadays...

    Wow! I was thinking "Midnight chaser" sounded like Iron Maiden's "2 minutes to Midnight". 'Til I discovered "Midnight chaser" was earlier. Good stuff! \m/

    Continued.... !!!!!! Stunned !!!!!! I have a little ditty called Nowhere To Run taped from the Friday Rock Show circa 1979/80. It's simple but I like it a lot. I've tried since then to find out who it was. This MUST be it - an extra track on the CD that wasn't on my vinyl album. Wish it was playable here ........ 3 listeners. Of course there aren't many - nobody has/knows it to scrobble it.

    Another early rock album I bought on vinyl and still have. So long since I heard it I've only just realised a certain Mr Gers is on it. Never dismiss a musician because they're unknown - everyone has to start somewhere.

    I hear years back about Janick Gers showing Steve Harris a song he wrote with White Spirit and saying Adrian Smith must've subconsciously ripped him off. Just heard it for the first time, and nearly snotted myself laughing! Great song, all the same!
