    Info:
    The band was formed in 1980 and some time later, they recorded a four track demo that lead them to sign with MCA, who released their first album Total Control from 1983. The first album had a lot of Funk/Blues fusion with Metal, but it not sell as MCA expected, and they get dropped. In 1984 the band released the Born to Rock EP, by their own independent label, Pitbull Records. In 1986, they signed with Metal Blade and was released the album Speed of Light, with more Heavy Metal influences on its sound. After the Speed of Light release, a Italian guitarrist Alex Masi joined the band and took control of everything, leaving the remaining original members no option but to quit the band.

    I remember hearing this group for the first time on some metal radio show in the 80s. They were playing the Speed of Light album and I was impressed! Never knew about the Masi connection. And never knew about this single release, though I know the song was one of the tracks on the LP.
