    Saw this poster in downtown Grenoble.
    Way cooler than your Dad's Dad Band.
    More draw than Pink Cream 69
    Pretty Maids.
     
  2. The guy on the right is seriously ruining the tough guy image

    So.. I wonder. The two on the right side. Is it the bassist clowning the synth player below or vice versa? It's really a great picture. So much going on!

    I bet all of those guys are dads. Probably even granddads.

    The drummer has kind of a loner image. Classic angry metal drummer pose. :D
    I bet they were good live, I kind of wish I had seen it.

    I actually have an LP by those guys called 'Future World'. I bought it back in the 80's. They are from Finland or Denmark.
    I'll have to dust off the record collection and give it a spin to see if I liked it or not.

    I checked them out. They are totally legit pros!
    Not my style, but very good!

  9. I’m a fan. They have a few REALLY good songs per album, some ok songs, and some filler. No album is super solid from beginning to end, IMO. Power metal with pop hooks.

    I'm more of a Pink Cream 69 fan...David Readman has a hell of a voice and the songs are pretty solid.

    80's style rock bass is pretty cool too...
     
  12. Pretty Maids and Pink Cream 69 are both actually cool bands with silly names.

    Agreed %100!
    I just saw the poster/flyer on a random outing and liked the funny pic. They are both really talented groups.
    Legit!
     
  14. Well now! I would check them out if they were in town. I would have to leave my dad at home though.
    He likes old country. ;)
    Pink cream 69?! someone watched Spinal Tap once too many.
