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

Background
An obscure little beauty this 6-track EP is, from the long forgotten Neil Rush Band. Neil Rush is definitely the leader of the pack with this band, he plays the saxophone and anyone in the Pacific Northwest region will know of his experience and background, even when he was a member of Paul Revere And The Raiders and other outfits before and after. Formed in the 80's, the Neil Rush Band were a well-known proposition in the Seattle area. Perhaps what is not well known is the music that this outfit deliver. A heap of 80's era contenders rear their head in the comparison stakes. Take Beau Coup, Jack Street Band, Dakota and The Automatix and throw it all together. 'See You Soon' has a very mid-west feel about it, and because it is lost in 1984, I suspect that this is prime-time material for most of you good GDAZE readers.


The Songs
Neil gives his tonsils a good workout (with the sax) on the opener 'Is It Up To You Or Me'. I can just visualise Beau Coup and the Jack Street Band doing a combo of this co-jointly. Guitarist Tyler Tullock gets the riff-machine working overtime on 'Biggest Part Of Me', but thankfully it becomes less heavy-metal (yes folks, you heard it right.. HM) as we progress through the listening time, though the solo also pokes a stick at 1984 era metal. 'What The Hell' brings us back into mainstream AOR territory safely despite the dodgy song-title, while the handcuffs are placed on our wrists for the listening experience of 'Give Me Your Love', just so we can't escape! Best comparison could be a workingman's version of dbut era Bon Jovi, especially those chugging guitars of Tullock who gives us his best Richie Sambora impersonation. 'I'll See You Soon' has a quirky flavour, unlike the closing ballad 'Slipaway', a gorgeous track high in quality for an indie/low end release such as this EP.


In Summary
The band had various line-ups during their ten-year hiatus in existence, and in the intervening years, some of the above named personnel have crossed paths in other local area Seattle bands. This will never see the light of day on CD, I am guessing it will stay a vinyl prospect well into the future. Worth an inspection, though at six tracks, this might be a little light time-wise.

Highly recommended top drawer AOR melodic rock here. Just really not a bad song in the bunch.
