If you were a regular of Sounds magazine during 1981 and 1982, then this Anaheim Orange County band may have been on your radar. By this timeframe, American metal was starting to develop, and became a lot more sophisticated in the process. What was surprising was the all round excellence of August Redmoon. A good batch of songs, great production for an independent release, and a sound not unlike a less manic Anvil.

The Songs
'Fools Are Never Alone' was a 4 track release on 12 vinyl. August Redmoon did release this in 1981 through their own efforts before Metalworks picked it up the following year, adding an extra track 'Don't Stop Me'. This was the same label which reworked the debut Crysys LP 'Hard As Rock' reviewed here just recently. August Redmoon really were one of the better L.A bands on the circuit, though probably more denim than the glam/flash bands that would go onto bigger things. With a string of hard hitting songs such as the title track 'Fools Are Never Alone' and 'Jeckyll And Hide', August Redmoon knew how to write a decent tune.

In Summary
By 1983, the band were still hovering in undeground circles, and a name change to Terracuda resulted in several new songs but no recording deal was forthcoming. In later years, the Metal For Muthas label reissued this on CD with an extra seven tracks, which featured some live tracks plus those Terracuda demos. A good band for their time.
