Fletchanator's comment: Silly names aside (guitarists named Thunder and Lightning? Really?), Sweet F.A. put out one helluva debut album in 1990. These boys from Indiana played southern-styled hard rock, sounding similar to Tesla and Bulletboys. The single Rhythm of Action got some radio play. Sweet F.A. put out a follow-up album in 1991, before fading into obscurity. I heard they reunited for a few shows in 2007, but I'm not sure if they're still together.

I absolutely love this album. The drummer (Tricky Lane) is from my hometown of Leavenworth, KS. The title track's lyrics are really good, Heart of Gold is a very solid ballad and Prince of the City absolutely rocks. Not a bad song to be found on this one. I highly recommend this album!

I partied with these guys in Detroit when they opened for Circus Of Power. They were a lot of fun & a good band!

I just got their 2nd album last week, temptation. At first, I'm not really interested with this band, since I know nothing about this band before. I think their 2nd album is pretty good. But I don't like the cover.

Never heard their debut. So thanks a lot for this post :)

First of all The band never faded away they simply split up and the lead singer Steve formed a new Band called Red Eye, that never really went too far. The band did re-unite in 2006-2007 as a reunion sort of thing. I used to run sound for these guys in naptown (Indianapolis, IN) at Karma Ritz Music Hall, Backstage, Bentleys and a few other places locally. This band should have stayed together as they really had a good thing going. I spent alot of time with these guys and can say from experience they were some of the nicest folks you could hang with. Sweet F.A. AKA Sweet F*&c&*&G Ass the name itself was actually thought of by J.T. Thunder while driving to a show one night, it got alot of laughs then actually became the name of the band. If you have not heard these two albums, you should definately give them a listen.
