What do you get when singer Terry Brock (Strangeways, Giant), guitarist Gary Pihl (Sammy Hagar, Boston) and bassist Robert Berry (Three) are invited to pool forces? Terrible name aside, the answer is a set of smooth, immensely hummable hard rock songs that’s low on ostentation yet sky high in the quality department.

Dave Ling was a co-founder of Classic Rock magazine. His words have appeared in a variety of music publications, including RAW, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Prog, Rock Candy, Fireworks and Sounds. Dave’s life was shaped in 1974 through the purchase of a copy of Sweet’s album ‘Sweet Fanny Adams’, along with early gig experiences from Status Quo, Rush, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Yes and Queen. As a lifelong season ticket holder of Crystal Palace FC, he is completely incapable of uttering the word ‘Br***ton’.
