Now I love 80's style "hair metal" as much as the next man, but when your opening number resembles the theme from Baywatch, the set continues with similarly derivative nonsense and your backing vocals are suspiciously rich (i.e. artificially enhanced) for a 5-piece rock band, then you've lost me. Entertaining but ultimately forgettable.

Absolute twaddle, but I'm sure someone must have liked them, there seemed to be enough loud cheers coming from the front.

Glad it's not just me, then.  I might have enjoyed them 30 odd years ago, but all seemed a little stage-y to me.

 Winners of the "How generic can you get??" competition, channelling the spirit of 1983, they were like a tribute band for someone you've never heard of. But at least they didn't take themselves too seriously.

I enjoyed hearing the theme to the Sweeney which they walked on to. But that was it. It was even difficult to sleep to.

How do band's like this and Quill get on the bill when there's so many better alternatives?

Our thoughts exactly. And they were far too loud. We only stayed on the field through this and the subsequent Marillion attack in order to ensure we didn't lose  our good spot for the evening.

I enjoyed these a great deal. They would go down a treat in my local rock club. Thought the band were musically very tight and although I didn't know any of the material, I enjoyed what I heard.
