The British band known as Rage has no ties to the German melodic thrashers who emerged a few years later, but actually rose from the ashes of '70s hard rock also-rans Nutz in 1981. Having witnessed the promise of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal firsthand when their last Nutz composition, "Bootliggers," was featured in the very popular Metal for Muthas collection, but knowing their previous baggage marked them as members of a previous generation, singer Dave Lloyd, guitarist Mick Devonport, bassist Keith Mulholland, and drummer John Mylett hired second guitarist Terry Steers to beef up their sound and cleverly renamed themselves Rage.Initially, their new lease on life seemed to bear fruit, with their first album for French label Carrere, 1981's Out of Control, selling quite well and receiving healthy press accolades, including a "5-K" review from Kerrang! magazine. But their euphoria was short-lived, as subsequent efforts like 1982's Nice 'n' Dirty and 1983's Run for the Night saw a return to the underwhelming songwriting and indifferent fan response that had plagued Nutz throughout the 1970s. This ultimately led to Rage's ignominious and final breakup sometime in 1984. Mylett tragically died in a car crash later that year, but Lloyd moved forward into a new project called 2 A.M.
Rock Candy Records have 'Remastered & Reloaded' the 3 albums recorded by British '80s rockers RAGE, available for the first time on CD, and believe me, all worth your attention. Rage's first album was this hard rockin' "Out Of Control".Liverpool most famous export was, undeniably, The Beatles, a band that would become the UK’s most successful musical export. Of lesser impact of course, but much loved on the local scene, were '70s rock stalwarts Nutz, a band that reached a certain level of success but, ultimately, buckled under numerous financial and business pressures. However, the one great benefit of that demise was the subsequent birth of Rage, a unit fit for the emerging hard rock explosion being pioneered by the NWOBHM.Signed to the French based Carerre label, home of Saxon, Rose Tattoo and Dokken, Rage utilised the prevailing zeitgeist of the time, quickly establishing themselves as an influential part of the emerging British Hard Rock scene. Their debut album "Out Of Control", issued in 1981, was produced by man of the moment Pete Hinton (Saxon, Demon) giving the material a contemporary, rough-hewn sheen which garnered great critical reaction and laid the foundations for intensive live work. Musically, the songs focused on tight riffs and some memorable hard rock hooks, giving vocalist Dave Lloyd a platform to ably demonstrate his range and style. Look out also for some incredible guitar soloing from Mick Devonport, a man who during his previous tenure with Nutz, had obviously been hiding his talent under a bushel.Material such as ‘I Don’t Wanna Leave’, ‘Money’, ‘Out Of Control’ and ‘Roll The Dice’ perfectly demonstrates why they were seen as one of the UK’s brightest hopes. At the time of its release, the prestigious Kerrang! magazine give the album '5 K'.Thanks to Rock Candy, "Out Of Control" appears for the first time on CD, fully 24-bit remastered and including two bonus tracks, songs recorded when the band was still named Nutz.A Highly Recommended collectors piece.
