Blame the band’s risible name on Parramore McCarty, who pulled it from a song he sang for Steve Stevens’ solo project, Atomic Playboys. McCarty also fronted the excellent Manowar Mini-Me combo Warrior and has a first-rate voice, though it deserves a better platform than the fair-to-middling thud and blunder that he presents here.

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’.
