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

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.

Steel Breeze - 1991 Still Warriors

SERIAL: SB 0005
YEAR: 1991

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

LINEUP: Rick Lowe - keyboards, guitars * Rob Bickford - guitars * Paul Ojeda - drums * Rob Toner - keyboards, vocals * Bob Thompson - vocals, guitars * Larry Tagg - bass, backing vocals * Chris Holmes - backing vocals * Ron Kimball - backing vocals

Background
I''ve always had a soft spot for the Steel Breeze debut. A nice slice of early 80's rock that still sounds good while driving in my car with the windows down on a hot summer day! For years I thought Steel Breeze were just another band that despite having a hit single 'You Don't Want Me Anymore', ended up on the wrong side of management, perhaps a bad contract or the old stand by - 'musical differences'.


The Songs
Whatever happened way back when, it was a pleasant surprise to find Steel Breeze were still active in the 90's and got around to releasing a couple CD's. Unfortunately, the results on this disc are not that impressive. 'Still Warriors' is a rather lackluster affair, far removed from the pop rock/ AOR mix of the debut which shouldn't be surprising considering none of the members of the original band are present on this disc. There is some good material here including the beautiful 'Love Can Tell' which crosses Tears For Fears with Bruce Hornsby & The Range, but 'Still Warriors' fails to deliver on the promise of the debut or the belated issue of 'Heart On The Line' with Kevin Chalfant on vocals.


In Summary
I really wanted to like this and I remember seeing Steel Breeze on the legendary 'Solid Gold' TV show lip synching to 'You Don't Want Me Anymore' thinking 'this band will be huge'. I was so wrong.

An OK release but not essential in my book - for completists only.
