    NO, I'm NOT talking about Quiet Riot. These guys were formed in New York City in 1975 by guitarist Mark Reale. I forget exactly how I discovered them, but I enjoy their music, particularly their 1977 jam "Rock City". They also seem to be popular in Japan for some reason.

    Yes, I absolutely love this band. They were NWOBHM sound but from America.

    Yes, their album Narita was originally only released in Japan. It could only be imported to the USA, but then they released an American version.

    They are popular in Japan because of this. As well as the title track, Narita, is about protesting something. I think it's an airport, and had to do with the deaths involved in making it.

    Been a Riot fan since the early 80s. The only album I have a lot of memories of is Fire Down Under. I bought something called Born in the USA in about 1990 that was absolute garbage.

    Doesn't take anything away from how cool Fire Down Under is in the same way that later Def Leppard albums don't diminish the greatness of their first (and less so) second albums.
