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

K.K Wilde - 1991 Rock n Roll



ARTIST: KK Wilde
ALBUM: Rock N Roll
LABEL: Platinum Records
SERIAL: 8-30294-4
YEAR: 1991

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

LINEUP: Kris Kurry - vocals, guitars * Eddie Wilde - guitars * Steven Scott - bass * Rich Hall - keyboards * Brian Black - drums

TRACK LISTING: 01 Rock 'n Roll * 02 Ain't No Doubt * 03 Queen Of The Angels * 04 Stand Up * 05 She's Got The Blues * 06 Living In Sin * 07 Round And Round * 08 Inside Out * 09 One Night * 10 Boys Nite Out * 11 East Side West Side Girls


Background
Los Angeles based outfit who previously went under the hammer as Kid Curry. These boys definitely have a foot in the glam camp, but are quite hard hitting too. Think of bands such as Kiss or even Jag Wire crossed with London and this is what you'll get. Despite the glammy/hard rock sound, the keyboards help fill the sound out making them sound commercial without losing their razor sharp edge.


The Songs
Starting out with the lame titled 'Rock N Roll', the band certainly know how to warm up the place. Little audio snippets of Led Zeppelin's own version of 'Rock N Roll' filter through the mix of this track. Cheeky aye? 'Ain't No Doubt' is eighties metal with a Ratt/Keel like approach. Even on 'Queen Of The Angels' the band know how to get the most out of an ordinary track with a load of vocal harmonies and a tighter than tight arrangement. A band of this nature is bound to get the hands clapping and feet stamping in true anthemic fashion. They duly deliver with 'Stand Out'. Despite the title, 'She's Got The Blues' is lighters-in-the-air power balladry, followed by the keyboard soaked hard rock of 'Living In Sin'. Perhaps my fave track is the smooth gloss of 'Inside Out'. This one has 'quality' written all over it. The acoustic 'One Night' appeals in much the same way as Warrant's 'Heaven' or Poison's 'Every Rose Has Its Thorn', and because it has that L.A sound, the comparison is kinda predictable.


In Summary
The band even had two of these tracks added to the soundtrack 'Showdown in Little Tokyo', the movie starring Dolph Lundgren and Tia Carerra. They were 'Round And Round' and 'Boys Nite Out'. That same year, the Wilde bunch released another album called 'Cocaine Cowboy'. The CD for this, though scarce, fetches amazing prices on Ebay, much to the amusement of the former band members. However, it was never re-released properly. The band split not long after, the members moving onto other projects as is usually the way.
