Rock City Angels *SAM LOOK!*

Post by Tall Tyrion on Mon Jan 04, 2010 3:02 am

Hey Sam, I did not want to intrude on your thread, but if you are just discovering the Quireboys, chances are good that you missed the Rock City Angels as well. You NEED to check out their album "Young Man's Blues", which was a three sided album, or long play cassette. It was also eventually released on cd, so you should be able to track it down. If not, LMK...

This stuff sounds brilliant. Seems to be a weird mix of glam, country / blues and even some punk. However, after doing a quick search online for any of their CDs, I can tell these are guys never had any success on this side of the pond as Young Man's Blues is scarce and seems to cost about £40+!

They never had much success over here either, unfortunately. Rumor was
that Geffen signed them and then buried them so that they would not be
a challenger to G'n'R. I don't quite know if I buy that, but they
certainly did have more than their share of bad breaks.

Of course, I'm sure heroin had nothing to do with it....

I snagged a bunch of stuff that Andy Panik put up when the RCA had a website a few years back, but none of it grabbed me the way that Young Man's Blues did. I've heard bad things about the S/T and Use Once and Destroy...

The S/T is great, just not the same...I think it's from at least 3 years earlier than YMB...and it has more of a New York Dolls swagger to it...pretty good....

"Us Once" sounds good, what I have ehard, but it's a cd-r and I can't ever see paying cd price for a fuckin' cd-r....

I checkout this myspace page
last night. I presume that all of the songs are from Use Once and
Destroy, but only the title track grabs me. I'll pass unless I find it
for super cheap, especially if it's a cdr.

Am I thinking of a different band then, similar name?

Nope.

Tough to find? I ordered my original cassette when it was first released, and the cd upon reissue. I never thought they were too tough to come by.

Wow... maybe they are, now. And to think I waited until I picked up the cd for cheap... I guess for the bands you love, you just keep searching...
