Yep in Argent, especially as Rod Argent and Jim we’re cousins.

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

There is a three-part article coming up for E.L.O (Eldorado, A New World Record and Out Of The Blue). Look out for it soon.

RATING:

WEBLINKS: www.myspace.com/preynation


Background
The endless stream of 80's influenced hard rock and metal coming down the icy cold brooks of Sweden throws up another contender. Prey, a name I'm unfamiliar with previous to this year, though we did write up a small news article announcing this - their new (second) album 'Knights Of The Revolution'. At first glance, you'd think these boys were a TNT styled copy cat - both in terms of imagery/content and their music. To a point, but the similarities end there. Prey are at the harder end of the scale, and though they have good presence and some good ideas, this one kinda washed over me without sticking.


The Songs
Certainly songs like 'Deliver The Goods' and 'Run' keep the hard rock quotient intact, but Prey live mostly at the harder and faster end of the hard rock spectrum, as evidenced by tracks such as 'Playing With Fire', 'In Memoriam' and 'Personal Fantasy'. When the intensity levels are lifted, the band sound very promising. Check out 'Bloodred Sky' and 'Addicted' as a pair of examples. The band don't opt to colour up their sound with an acoustic number or a true ballad, which leaves them sounding a little one-dimensional as a result. The other issue of note are the vocals, which stay rooted in a lower register and sound very rough and murky.


In Summary
In 2009 when budgets are tight and the recession hits hard to consumers, 'Knights Of The Revolution' is the sort of CD that may be left out in the cold as people tighten up their belts on discretionary spending. Not a bad album, but really needed some sparks and frills to stand out from the crowd.
