Info:

The Rods' self-produced independent debut album, 1980's Rock Hard, accomplished its primary mission of obtaining the fledgling heavy rock trio from upstate New York a major-label deal, and with none other than Clive Davis' Arista Records, which at the time was better known for housing soft rockers like Air Supply and the Alan Parsons Project, not to mention Barry Manilow! But the signing didn't come without a few minor concessions, and The Rods were in fact made to re-record the album under more "professional" circumstances, while replacing a few of its less "tasteful" cuts (e.g., "In Your Panties") prior to its 1981 release. And, for a final touch, the newly self-titled LP was repackaged inside a suspiciously Ramones-like photo of the denim- and leather-clad musicians leaning up against a crumbling brick wall, leading to some speculation that Arista mistakenly thought they'd signed a punk rock band. But there was literally nothing punk-like about the metal-plated heavy rock dominating the final results, which essentially ran the gamut of '70s-born influences one would expect from a trio of seasoned vets like these.

O.K. guys, he's cool! My bad! whoever sent me their band stuff I'll check it out. Somehow didn't get email. Kammenos is the coolest blogger I have ever known and I've been blogging since 2005! Go to Downunderground and get some of my free stuff, I recommend recent stuff by RAGE, Cold Steel, widowmaker, Stillwater and Teezar definitely. Seriously Boneyard Metal is the best blog I've found in years people.
