1989, cassette tape
Electrocution Of The Heart
I found this at Strawberries Record Store at Wellington Circle in Everett, MA.
Funny how I remember certain purchases.
Deadringer's members are drummer Neal Smith and bass player Dennis Dunaway of the original Alice Cooper band.
Joe Bouchard on keyboards of Blue Oyster Cult plus two other musicians Charlie Huhn on lead vocals who played with Ted Nugent on a few albums and on Gary Moore's "Dirty Fingers" among other bands. Jay 'Jesse' Johnson on guitar who played in Arc Angel and a number of other bands. All of them worked on backing vocals. Neal co-wrote four songs and Dennis three on those songs.
Buck Dharma (from BOC and Flat Out lp) gave them "Summa Cum Loud" which is probably the only good song on this album. I've played this tape a few times trying to get into it but only like a few songs. I don't hear any hints of the Alice Cooper sound. Some songs remind me of Twister Sister, BOC and "When You're In You're In" brings to mind of AC/DC. Although I know a few Alice Cooper fans who like this better than "Battle Axe" album.
