Yep in Argent, especially as Rod Argent and Jim we’re cousins.

Didn't Rodford also play in Argent and Charlie too?

Jim Rodford, bass player, The Kinks, Phoenix (I think?), but I remember him with The Zombies, saw live a while back. RIP

In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

There is a three-part article coming up for E.L.O (Eldorado, A New World Record and Out Of The Blue). Look out for it soon.

P.M Heat - 1989 P.M Heat [EP]

ALBUM: P.M Heat (EP)
LABEL: Emotion Records
YEAR: 1989


LINEUP: Paul Hybner, Mark Hybner, David Hybner, Steve Carson, Dan Stone, Lee Anthony, Rob Wright, David Da Luna

TRACK LISTING: 01 Power * 02 Could It Be You * 03 I Wanna Rock * 04 Never Break My Heart

Interesting little 4 track EP from this obscure Texan outfit. This band, with three family members involved, aspired to a hi-tech AOR sound not unlike fellow Texans The Cauze or talented Atlanta outfit Babe Blu. However, they come off sounding like a hybrid of bands. Best known of the band members was Mark Hybner, who was a founding member of well-heeled Texan dance and covers band The Emotions - who have performed all over the Lone Star state. P.M Heat must've been like a bolt from the blue in comparison to their history and roots. They certainly don't play like any typical Texan band. No long beards, texan boogie and boots to be seen or heard. I am aware of the band lineup, but 'm not certain who plays what here.

The Songs
The band only deliver a four-track effort for their troubles, but its pretty good, and to my ears, far more interesting than some of those mid 80's efforts by Day One and their ilk. 'Power' is without doubt, the pick of the four songs on display here. The keyboard laced layers amid the chugga guitars places this tune in the same territory as Agentz and Babe Blu - both well loved bands at this site. 'Could It Be You' has a commercial L.A metal thing happening, not unlike the band Billy The Kid. The same goes for 'I Wanna Rock', which reeks of King Kobra back in their prime. Things wrap up with 'Never Break My Heart', a return to their melodic side with a leaning toward AOR, rather than the previous two lite metal tracks.

In Summary
Unfortunately we never ever saw a full album release from P.M Heat, one can only assume the band's flame was snuffed out. Of the members, Mark Hybner ended up being a high profile record producer and manager based in Nashville. The others can be seen playing locally in a variety of local Texan bands. Fairly rare is this EP, I'm not sure what it goes for on Ebay, but I'm sure it won't be single figures!

Not a bad little outfit from the lone star state. Sweet Aor harmonies and even when things get heavy the melodies are still as smooth as a shot of shinerbock. Too bad we never heard anymore from these cats!
Great review!clap
