Background
In my opinion one of Canada's premier melodic rock bands of the seventies. Ahh this brings back memories! Glorious rollicking rock 'n' roll played out in a live environment. Still up there as one of the better live albums of the genre. Teaze were an unusual band in that they represented different things to different people. Image wise they invoked thoughts of Angel and Starz while their music was somewhere in between with a bit of Cheap Trick thrown in. Other people I've spoken with have different images, thoughts and opinions. One thing is similar though, and that is Teaze were a very good band and perhaps a bit misunderstood and ahead of their time.


The Songs
'Tour Of Japan' was their third album, following on from their self titled and 'On The Loose' albums. There are some boomer songs here .. The opening song 'Rockin' With The Music' reminds me of early eighties glam/pop metal band from the UK Silverwing (anyone remember them?). This song gallops along at a frantic pace, as do other tracks like 'Boys Nite Out', and 'Hot To Trot'. Teaze have also released the best ever version of the Vanda/Young chestnut 'Gonna Have A Good Time Tonite', better than any Aussie artist can do!


In Summary
Brian Danter's vocals come off sounding like Paul Stanley, while the twin guitar attack of Bradac and Price is impressive and they harmonise quite well in Thin Lizzy fashion. 'Tour Of Japan' is a great reminder of seventies melodic rock at it's best. Teaze went on to make two further studio albums, the fantastic 'One Night Stands' and their epitaph 'Body Shots' before calling it a day in 1981. All of Teaze's discography was released on CD in Canada by the Unidisc label. Snap them up before they disappear.
