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

Background
The news that McQueen Street were releasing a new cd certainly came as a surprise. No one had heard from the band for god knows how long. Some might wonder why they'd even bother, not being one of the heavy weights from the heydays of melodic hard rock. Regardless of whether they were the bomb back then or not, I was, and still am, a huge fan of their 1991 debut album. That album had some massive tunes, in particular the amazing 'My Religion'. A rock anthem if you've ever heard one. There were a number of damn good power ballads as well.


The Songs
What the band have been up to since 1991 is anyones guess. Their website has very little info, and the cd comes with no booklet, just a cover. Damn poor packaging to be honest. Due to no info, it is impossible to ascertain a timeline as to when these songs were recorded or written. Some sound as though they were recorded well after 1991, but who knows!!! The disappointment in the packaging is transfered to the listening experience. Yes, there are a few tracks that would have sat well amongst those on the debut, including the powerful 'World Machine' and very hard rocking 'Bad Moon'. But many of the other tracks sound like what they probably were - not good enough to make the album in the first place. You can also sense a change in direction with some of the songs.


In Summary
I can't hide my bitter disappointment with this album. I often wondered why there wasn't a second album and, if this is the material that was on offer, I can understand why. I think I need a big dose of 'My Religion' to restore some faith.
