STREETHEART - ONE MORE TIME

Hello and welcome back... Love this track, such an amazing sound...
Canadian band 'STREETHEART' released this killer track back in 1982.
In 1975, vocalist Ken Shields, Daryl Gutheil (synths) and Ken Sinnaeve (bass) formed the band Wascana. After being renamed Witness, they then went through another name change when guitarist Paul Dean and drummer Matt Frenette joined... And Streetheart was born.

SOLID CITIZENS - SINGING IN THE SHOWER (2015)

Hello and welcome back... Australian band 'Solid Citizens' had this excellent hit in 1985 called 'Singing in the Shower'
Fast forward 30 or so years and the track has been re-released and is also on the compilation CD called 'Australian Pop of the 80s - Vol 4 Run to Paradise'.. well worth getting this collection, there is some great rare tracks that sound amazing after a digital cleanup including this track.

Such a classic song.. Love it

SOLID CITIZENS - SINGING IN THE SHOWER  (2015)



INFO FROM THE VIDEO
This is a 2015 re-mastered version of Solid Citizens' hit 'Singing in the shower' featuring a young Danielle Spencer in the Psycho shower scene intro. Other versions of the recording were digitized from the vinyl record, and don't have the frequency range and depth this version has, which was digitized from the analogue master tape. It's from Michael Walker's EP 'Now and then' which can be purchased on iTunes. Michael was the co-founding member of Solid Citizens and lead singer. Michael was inspired to write the song after hearing a Thursday Island family sitting out on their Brisbane verandah, singing their hearts out for all the world to hear. Glen Muirhead and John Barns co-wrote the song. Michael Walker and Glen Muirhead recorded the song at the Manor Studios UK with Mike Shipley and Mark Goldenberg producing. John Whitteron and the K team produced and directed the film clip.

GLEAMING SPIRES - ARE YOU READY (FOR THE SEX GIRLS)

Hello and welcome back... Viewers who love the 80s movie 'Revenge of the Nerds' & 'Last American Virgin' will instantly recognize this song.
U.S band Gleaming Spires (founded by Les Bohem and David Kendrick) had this one and only hit with originally a B-Side called Sex Girls (Are you Ready) and was from the album 'Songs from the spires'
Several members of Gleaming Spires were also members of bands like 'Sparks' and 'Devo'
Oh, and if you were expecting the video to contain sexy girls... Forget it. Anyone for meringue?


GLEAMING SPIRES - ARE YOU READY (SEX GIRLS)  (1981)

Thanks to onlyalad for the video

LYRICS

Are you ready for the sex girls?
The hot, hot, lean, hot, big hot girls?
Are you ready for the sex girls?
The right, right, ultra-vital nice-nice girls?

They play pool in your house, take off their own clothes
They can talk about love, they know where it goes
They are women without any faults…

Are you ready for the pony girls?
The ride, ride, fast, ride, pony girls?
Are you ready for the lonely girls?
The sad, sad, oh, sad lonely girls?

They've got time on their hands, they've got skin like seals
They can talk about love, they know how it feels
They are women without any faults

One comes over
Then they all come over
Then they party all around your house
One gets too romantic
One is kinda frantic
One stays quiet as a mouse

Bikinis gleaming in the morning light
You might lose your life
They go crazy in the bedroom, baby
And they might explode your mind!

Are you ready for the sex girls?
The fine, fine, super-special real sex girls?
Are you ready for the best girls?
The knees-showin', knees-showin', big-breast girls?

There's that knock on your door and they're there in your house
If you can't talk love you better get out
These are women without any faults

And they are never accidental
And the party never ends
So close your eyes and make a wish
The sex girls will be there!

Are you ready for the sex girls?
Sex! Sex! Sex! Sex!

Are you ready for the sex girls?
The hot, hot, lean, hot, big hot girls?
Are you ready for the sex girls?
The hot, hot, lean, hot, big hot girls?
There's that knock on your door they have come back again
If you can't talk love you'd better pretend
These are women without any faults

Are you ready for the sex girls?
The hot, hot, lean, hot, big hot girls?
Are you ready for the sex girls?
The hot, hot, lean, hot, big hot girls?

There's that knock on your door, now you just gotta learn
Don't whine about love, every boy gets a turn
With these women without any faults

Are you ready for the sex girls?
No one is ready for the sex girls!
Are you ready for the sex girls?
No one is ready for the big sex girls

BEAUVOIR / FREE - ANGELS CRY

Hello and welcome back... Kick Ass new music from rockers JEAN BEAUVOIR & MICKI FREE.

In 1986, one of the best movies came across our screens, that was of course the movie "Cobra" with Sylvester Stallone.. What made it even better was the end track from ex-Plasmatics singer 'Jean Beauvoir' with 'Feel The Heat'.
The album 'Drums across the Mohawk' was a huge hit and its one album i still listen to today.

Also in the 80s another rocker was making waves with the band 'Shalamar' was 'Micki Free'.
With hits singles from Footloose and Beverly Hills Cop, it was only a matter of time that these two legends would cross paths.
Fast forward to 2015 and a new album and single has emerged. The album is called "American Trash", its 11 tracks of pure rock heaven.
Rock On..
