debuted in 1989 with "No Respect" and their songs were frequently featured on
MTV's Headbanger's Ball, they toured their asses off in the US and rounded the
year off with a UK tour supporting Skid Row and things looked bright for them.
In 1991 when they were about to really take off, things turned bad for them;
ready with album number two, "All Those Strangers" they all of a sudden found
themselves without a record label due to the collapse of Island Records.
19 years later, Davy Vain is releasing this album by himself, and we all get the
chance to take a trip down memory lane, because this is pure nostalgia! This is
hard rock with an edge like we were served from bands like Skid Row, Cinderella
and Mötley Crüe, back when file-sharing was called tape-trading and was accepted
and people bought their music on vinyl. Just before a wave from the north called
grunge swept across the musical landscape and changed it forever...
Those Strangers" show a young and up-coming Davy Vain and fit right in with all
albums he has been a part of later on. This is close to a mandatory purchase if
you like his work and/or if you still get a kick out of listening to those
dinosaurs mentioned above every now and then.
