Slow week for me, it's been all horse racing in Australia this week, with the Melbourne Cup meeting over four days. Back to GDM on the weekend.

Background
Canadian band Teaze have always intrigued many with their 70's hard rock sound. Caught somewhere between Cheap Trick and Starz, these pop bound hard rockers should've been huge back in the day, as they had all the tricks of the trade and a multi-cast sound that spanned genres like a bridge. If the knowledge of Japanese fans was anything to go by, and their appreciation of Teaze was huge by the way, then it astounds me that Teaze didn't quite get to grips with the fickle American market. In fact, 'One Night Stands' was an attempt by Canadian label Aquarius to break Teaze into the US, unfortunately the ruse didn't quite pay off. History being what it is, Teaze still managed to grace us with some spectacular songs which only the die-hard fans have been singing the praises of for years..


The Songs
The album was produced by April Wine's Myles Goodwyn, and while a solid album, many still hold their previous three releases as slightly superior, though for me I'll take all of their discography any day. The band still have the knack of writing witty and profoundly hardened pop rock with a bit of steel. Check out their up-tempo moments on 'Back In Action', 'Reach Out' and 'Red Hot Ready'. The album's piece de resistance is the classic 'Boys Night Out', which we heard previously on 'Tour Of Japan'. Many fans also enjoyed the power ballad 'Heartless World', with the soaring and OTT vocals from Brain Danter. They also do another acoustic/electric ballad in the form of 'Stay Here', with shades of Boston in the mix. Elsewhere, the band gallop along with 'Through The Years' but end the album with the rather unusual 'Touch The Wind', sounding like one of those early 80's heavy metal efforts from any number of contenders. The twin guitars of Price and Bradac are very noticeable.


In Summary
'One Night Stands' was the first Teaze album to get a domestic release in the USA, but it appears the band did not undertake to release a single from the album, which was basically a death sentence during the era of radio promotion and regional marketing. These days of course things are much different. The band would go on to release one more studio album 'Body Shots' in 1980, but called it quits not long after. Thirty years after its initial release, Teaze fans get a special treat as 'One Night Stands' gets the reissue treatment from Rock Candy Records, and will appear on CD with an extra bonus track during September 2009.
