Fletchanator's comment: Another band with a lot of potential that was never realised was Blonz. This album was produced by a couple of guys from 70s prog rockers Kansas, and some of the songs were written by the likes of Joe Lynn Turner and the singer from Fierce Heart. After Blonz split, Utz, Taylor and Ogle formed Chaingang. I would compare the Blonz sound to Bon Jovi with Tesla's Jeff Keith on vocals. It's good stuff. Check it out.

Utz also did a short stint in 92 as the lead for an established act known at the time as Queen Anne's Revenge, who had previously been Torn Lace if I'm remembering right.

Thanks for posting my req! So glad to have this again.

I was the stage manager and studio tech for the album. That was a crazy time, and I still feel the disappointment from the flameout after the album was released.
