Fletchanator's comment: The one and only album released by Pennsylvania five-piece Roughhouse, who were dropped by their label just a year later and folded in 1991. It's a shame, because this self-titled recording is good stuff. Singer Luis Rivera has a vocal style reminiscent of Motley Crue's Vince Neil in the early days (ie Too Fast For Love). The musicianship is solid, with good guitaring. Guitarist Rex Eisen would later join nu metal band Static X, before being kicked out when he was arrested for having sex with an underage girl. Don't let that stop you from enjoying this album though - it's a good listen.

This band originally was called Teeze and put out an album under that name -- if you thought the self-titled "Roughhouse" was good, get the original, it's better (or, if you want to see how a label can kill a band, check out the differing versions of the songs on the two releases, like Midnite Madness, which are superior in their original incarnation in each case).
