Quote: Their first release, 1985's self titled Phantom, Rocker & Slick was produced by Michael Barbiero and Steve Thompson and was a moderate success peaking at 62 on the Billboard 200.

Its first single was "Men Without Shame" and was written in ten minutes. It did well on the Top Rock Tracks chart peaking at number 7 and was played in the active rotation on MTV.

That was so obscure, I've never even heard of it. chuckle.gif A decent guitarist, but a bit too flashy for me personally.

Obscure is a very good word to describe this Phantom, Rocker & Slick "super group" and their "Men Without Shame" a very underrated and not played and heard enough one hit wonder song...

Although i like them and their sound i'm not saying they're "super" or even "super duper" (*=*) just meaning super as a rock group thats been formed by people already known from other bands (*-*)

While their souls are emotionally bleeding out through their instrumentations and vocalizations. I mean like wow listen to that awesome lead guitar playing (by Earl Slick) throughout this intense song and how its friggin talking (its own unique musical language) > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_Slick

I'd heard of them but had totally forgotten about them!

Saw the other former Stray Cat - Brian Setzer Orchestra about a month or so ago. He's getting old, but up on a great show.

Cool tune!

cheers.gif

But I just gotta hate that 80's drum sound a bit.

Why did the drums always have to sound like recorded
in an empty warehouse back then?

Oh, yeah, now I remember:
That is because everyone had spent loads of € on those
brand new digital reverb machines - had to use'em.
