Lightning Raiders - Sweet Revenge
/ In a just and righteous world it would be satisfying to report that
the Lightning Raiders rose from humble beginnings to take the world by
storm, notching up sell out tours and a string of platinum albums, with
their faces splashed across the front cover of every music magazine.
Sadly, none of those achievements materialised but, amongst a select
few, the Lightning Raiders were cherished far more than the biggest rock
stars in the world.
Based in West London, the Lightning Raiders carved out a serious
reputation during the early 80s as an uncompromising quartet that took
every opportunity to tear down barriers and set fire to tradition. Half
punk, half metal and blessed with an anything goes attitude, the band's
live reputation for militant confrontation soon turned into an anything
can happen in the next half hour kind of event.
With musical links to Motorhead, the Pink Fairies, the Sex Pistols,
Kilburn & The High Roads and many more, their reputation for setting
the stage on fire was second to none. Signed by Island Records, the
band recorded tracks for their debut album at the Who's Ramport Studios,
only to find half way through that the label's direction had changed
and that they were no longer considered part of the plan. The eight
songs on this record are the surviving mixed tracks from those sessions,
giving us a taste of what would have been if the band had been allowed
to continue on their path to fame and fortune.
24-bit mastering from original source tapes, previously un released
album, features members of the Pink Fiaries and the Sex Pistols, 3,500
word essay about the making of the album, new interview and previously
unseen photos all spread out over a 12 page full colour booklet.
