RIOT!


This was my favorite band c. 1981. At the time, they were just the fastest band I'd ever heard, and in my mindset at the time (age 12-13), that pretty much meant they were the best band I'd ever heard. Actually, the song sounds better on the album. Someone uploaded the whole thing, so you can listen to it here, and also check out the blazing "Fire Down Under" and "Run For Your Life," and the catchy tune "Outlaw."

I almost got to see them live, opening for Rainbow, but they cancelled and were replaced with Krokus, which pretty much left me having to watch Rainbow and Krokus. I have no idea about the weird furry thing on their album covers (possibly a reference to their bassist at the time, Kip Lemming?).
