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

Tomorrow's Child - 1993 Tomorrow's Child

ARTIST: Tomorrow's Child
ALBUM: Tomorrow's Child
LABEL: Dream Circle
YEAR: 1993


LINEUP: Adam - vocals * Rik Shaffer - guitars * Steve Reznick - bass * Craig Dollinger - drums

TRACK LISTING: 01 Walk In The Woods * 02 Go Down Screaming * 03 Suburban Rain * 04 Daddy Says * 05 Ain't Been Sleepin' * 06 Asylum Erotica * 07 Building Babylon * 08 Get The Green * 09 Animal Inside * 10 Don't Talk To Me * 11 Little Heroes * 12 Shelter * 13 Love And Madness

This is a band that were often spoken about in magazines such as Metal Forces back in the hair metal days. Despite the attention, they did not get a full album's worth of material out into the public domain until 1993, long after the hairspray and gel had dried to a crust, and after the band had split. A shame really, as I quite liked what they recorded. A little history lesson then.

Tomorrow's Child came together in 1987, and became one of the top club bands doing the rounds on the L.A Strip. Their image was glam, but their sound was a bit more complex, including progressive rock overtones. One of their songs appeared on a Metal Blade Records compilation called 'Street Survivors'. As a result of this interest, Arista Records signed TC, and bought Jimmy Cregan (Rod Stewart Band) in to produce. Unfortunately Arista weren't happy with the results and let the band go. Back in 1989, Metal Forces' Kelv Hellrazer described them as: 'the bastard sons of U2, but with a whole lot more attitude and street credibility. Possibly my favourite L.A. band right now. Enough said'.

The Songs
Tomorrow's Child actually split in mid 1992, and it wouldn't be until the following year that German/Austrian label Dream Circle released a CD of thirteen tracks. Seven of which recorded in 1992, the remaining six being rebadged demos recorded during the 1989-1990 period. Highlights include the wonderful 'Walk In The Woods', with those guitars drenched in analog delay. 'Go Down Screaming' is a bit of a betler, while 'Suburban Rain' hints at some Rush styled passages. Rockier tunes such as 'Building Babylon' and the upbeat 'Get The Green' showcase the band in an uptempo mode.

In Summary
This album wasn't the only output from the band. Dream Circle also released 'Rocky Coast, Rough Sea' in 1996, which were in fact the Cregan produced Arista recordings, so that should be worth trying to track down. A good band, who were reputedly an excellent live band too. Perhaps Kelv was onto something here, pity they never quite made it.

Kelv was always ahead of the game. Record labels didn't listen. More fool them

I really like what I heard there. I liked what I heard here and found a song called Wings of Desire from the Rocky Coast, Rough Seas CD on YouTube - both songs were enough to make me snaffle both the albums. Funny I keep saying I'm done with looking out for stuff I haven't heard before! I mean it that's it...I'm stopping reading reviews here Grin
