No Credit Band are a German outfit that I came across in 1993 thanks to their album 'Interrelated'. Signed to the big EMI label, the album saw wide distribution and was easy to pick up at the time. The band compared easily to fellow Germans Craaft and Statement. Of more interest with this band was the fact that they had released two previous albums, which were rumored to be much better than 'Interrelated', and so it proved. Only recently have these albums 'Ready For Surprise' (1989) and 'Break My Heart Again' (1987) been made available to the listening public via blogsites. No Credit Band originate from the Heilbronn area of Germany and released 'Break My Heart Again' as an independent four track EP during 1987.

The Songs
The four songs provided here offer an insight into No Credit's early sound. I much prefer this material to what was found on 'Interrelated'. The singer Karl-Heinz Franz is a doppelganger for Larry Baud, the American singer previously with USA and Red Dawn. The songs are all quite varied. The first - and title track, is a guitar based rocker in the Craaft mould. The song was also re-recorded for their 'Ready For Surprise' album two years later. 'Woman' is an extended ballad with some lovely touches, including a magic chorus. 'The Feeling Is Away' is another ballad, though mid-paced in tempo this time around, it wakes up about the one minute mark, surging off into AOR territory. The final offering on this four-part platter is the pomp sounding 'Baby Please Give Me One More Chance'. Tapping keyboards and staccato guitar work make this a compulsory listen! Four tracks, great stuff!

In Summary
The band moved on to 1989's superior 'Ready For Surprise', a bombastic sounding album! Fans of Roko, and pomp outfits such as Rescue and Javan will take great enjoyment out of that album for sure. To round out the collection, tracking down the two No Credit Band albums should be a task immediately undertaken, before they disappear off the map altogether.
