It was the end of the 70ties and we just had dealt with the Sex Pistols, when there came a small band from Munich-Pasing and played almost exactly the same sound which was on the first two Molly Hatchet albums. And this band had its own songs!
I don't know anymore how any times I've seen them live. Five, maybe ten times, but oh man, this band raised hell. Guitar duels, boogie and classic southern rock, all the songs played as hard as the hardest songs of their American idols.
Creepy Lane is the name of this band and a couple of thousands of fans from the Munich area gave everything (even their last mark for a train ticket to the next gig), but the band split before the expected break through.
The LP was titled 'Let the rebels rock', released on the Zyx Records label and was even mixed in Jacksonville (Fl) and with hindsight the record had only one weak point : the vocals were too thin. Anyway, Robert Stragalinos may be as old as I am, which means that his voice hadn't broken at the time. For the rest, the record contains some great double leads and fine rock songs.
Songs like 'black friend', 'Dixie talkin' or 'round up' haven't found in Germany - nor elsewhere - their match. Even the obligatory Free bird plagiarism as in the song 'The dirty deal' sounds extraordinarily unsentimental since there are extremely beautiful, hard rocking guitar riffs and solo's that you wish never to end.

  1. А, ещё одну интересную группу раскопал и молчишь... Вторая вещь мне понравилась больше. Беру послушать... Хотел съездить на Горбушку или в Трансильванию, да вчера что-то не получилось. Может быть сегодня соберусь и отправлюсь в поход.

    1. Хмм.)) Я ж частенько напоминаю в твоём журнале, заходи мол в гости на огонёк.) Огонёк - это и есть что-то новенькое.))
