    ^^That is a great "Psyche Up" song for me Sox, loved playing it before football or hockey games.:tup:

    Going back across the pond for this band, very under valued I always thought and if you only ever picked one album of theirs to check out this is definitely it.

    Added the cover for you Joe, and that is a great record too. Sox hit a nerve with his thread, too many people discount the 80's for whatever reason and forget the number of great albums by some talented bands were recorded then as well.

    I do have a couple of Disco albums in the house,,,but I only play them under the influence.:hab:

    :heheh:

    Thanx for that LG. For me, the 80's weren't bad though they weren't good either. Reach the Beach was one of the few 'new wave' albums I bought.

    In the UK in the early 80's the NWOBHM was at full throttle and to celebrate this and the other rising rock acts the magazine Kerrang was launched (1981), I remember as a kid picking up the first issue which in mint condition can now fetch up to £500. Here's one from a band who's axeman featured on the cover and I think is one of the biggest selling rock albums ever. From 1980 ..

    Good choices there LG and Joe I will do some digging around on those for my own pleasure.

    After the explosion Punk caused there came a genre we in Holland called 'New Wave'.
    One of the most interesting groups arising from that period for me is The Sound. Dark, somber and on the other hand strangely uplifting. Their best album is this one:
