Radioux City – Soul survivor Release: 23-05-’17
Label: AOR Boulevard records
Gary Brandon is one of the original co-founders of pomp LA band White Sister. A front Man keyboardist songwriter in his own right. In 1985, believing that the group should be fronted by one singer, the record label took a decision behind the scenes that White Sister was no longer going to have alternative lead singers. In addition to this, and to make the situation worse, Gary’s role in the band was reduced to less lead vocals and a position of keyboard player.
In 1986, as Gary was extremely unhappy with this decision, he decided to quit the band during the early stages of what was going to be the second White Sister album “Fashion by Passion”. Working on various songs that also a big part of the bands legacy.
In order to survive, Gary found working in the John Parr Live Touring Band. This lay down the foundations to what would be the formation of his next band – a band that would allow him to finally return to his originally intended path as front man, Radioux City.
In 1988, the first batch of demos were recorded. It was slow progress over the next three years creating the lineup of musicians and forming the structure of Radioux City.
The decline of all forms of rock music and the 90s music scene has been well documented over the years with a move towards grunge Seattle sound. Unfortunately, victims of this move were Radioux City.
However, a quarter of a decade later, and finally released from the vault is a highly anticipated and worthy CD release on ABR. Complete with new artwork and lyric booklet and remastered to capture the retro sound. In addition, there are three bonus tracks and a cover of Ted Nugent’s classic “Free For All ”.
The Radioux City sound is hard rock with a swagger and a mixture of infectious grooves.
The sound has been described as a meeting of King of the Hill, It’s Alive and some Early Extreme.
My name is Gino (I'm from Belgium) and I 'm the founder of Rock-files-promo.be , a new website to promote new bands , unsigned bands , non-euro distributed and lots more !
I've always been very passionate for rock music in general so I desided to start my personal website but different from what you see all over the web !
This site is non profit (donations are accepted) and all about my favorite music. Almost all cd's here are in my private collection (or will be asap) !
When I started this website in september 2016 I wasn't planning on doing reviews because I believe that's someone's personal opinion...but as you'll see I already changed my mind about this because the requests keep coming from bands & labels. Interviews are also possible !
Most of the promotion here are bands that I know personaly in one way or another...and from the labels that I have partnership with.
I choose to specialize in small independant releases or releases that are hardly distributed over here ! Countrys like Brazil,Mexico,Russia,.....
I work very hard to bring to you the best music news and more. I'm not just another site posting standard releases in a row, I take the time to select the best and newest bands. All this is big time-consuming, alongside to write a proper review and prepare all the material. So if you like what I'm doing here maybe you can help me with a donation through paypal.
