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

Rock Boulevard - 1990 Rock Boulevard



ARTIST: Rock Boulevard
ALBUM: Rock Boulevard
LABEL: Tri Records
SERIAL: TRI-0003
YEAR: 1990

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

LINEUP: David Lantz * Marcuz Fury * Deland Voth * Robbie Worldridge

TRACK LISTING: 01 Girl You Know (It's Your Love) * 02 Invisible Chains * 03 Statutory * 04 Mama * 05 I Got What You Want * 06 I Live For Rock-n-Roll * 07 Mama (Bonus Track)


Background
Here's a band that missed the tail-end of the late great eighties hair-metal parade. An American combo, with a sound that integrates a zillion other hopefuls out there. But what they did have, they did well. Lots of melody, guitar sting, big hooks, a loud vocalist and a tight rhythm section. Other bands similar to these guys included: 9.0 and Jillson. Their one-off album is relative short and sweet but it packs a punch from wo-to-go.


The Songs
Opener 'Girl You Know' is a wicked introduction, similar to Jillson's best moments. The chorus plays tag with your brain right from the outset. 'Invisible Chains' could be any number of bands, such is the musical tribute to the hair-metal style and genre. You can pick and choose. 'Statutory' is kick-ass in typical fun-filled Van Halen fashion. The guilty verdict you hear toward the end of the song is hilarious! 'Mama' is the band's ballad. You'll notice there are two versions on the album, the other (track 7 is longer by about 2 minutes at 6.32). Back in the melodic groove is 'I Got What You Want', another good listen with super drum work, while 'I Live For Rock N Roll' could be accused of the heard-it-all-before syndrome and is lyrically tacky, but somehow they get away it, with guitars on full zing (or is that full sting?), and their attitude finely grated on the back alleys of Anyville USA.


In Summary
This album is an indie, and would find a good home to those who love that hair-metal/AOR crossover. The production is pretty good, though the limited track time (31min 40) will irk a few punters out there. You'll see this go for megabucks on Ebay, but don't be suckered into spending big without first reading this, and/or listening to a few samples if at all possible.
