Red Rider ( Encore Feature)

Red Rider was a Canadian rock band popular in the 1980s. While the band achieved great success in Canada, they never managed to break through in the US market.

In 1978, Tom Cochrane joined up with Rob Baker on drums, Jeff Jones on bass, Peter Boynton on keyboards and Ken Greer to form Red Rider. They were signed to Capitol Records and released their first album Don’t Fight It in 1980. With the singles “White Hot” and “Don’t Fight It”, the album quickly reached gold status. Their second album As Far as Siam was released in 1981 and featured the hit “Lunatic Fringe” which was in the 1982 movie “Vision Quest.”. “Lunatic Fringe” and two other tracks, “Cowboys in Hong Kong” and “What Have You Got To Do” were featured in an episode of Miami Vice in addition to which helped push the album to platinum. Boynton was replaced by keyboardist Steve Sexton on Red Rider’s third album Neruda, released in 1983. The track “Napoleon Sheds His Skin” would become one of the more popular songs from the album.


For their 1984 album Breaking Curfew, John Webster replaced Sexton on keyboards. The album did not sell as well as Neruda and a dispute with Capitol Records over the future direction of the band resulted in Red Rider being dropped from the record label later in 1984.

The band subsequently signed with RCA. In what became a strong signal regarding the future of the band, they officially became known as Tom Cochrane and Red Rider, and released their self-titled fifth album in 1986.

In 1987, Capitol released a compilation CD titled Over 60 Minutes with Red Rider, covering the band’s first four albums.

In the fall of 1988, the band released their sixth album Victory Day which contained the track “Big League”, about a boy’s dream of playing in the National Hockey League. The song was featured in a segment on CBC Television’s Hockey Night in Canada.

Red Rider’s final album, The Symphony Sessions, was released in 1989 and saw the band performing with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, as Procol Harum had done seventeen years before. Cochrane’s solo career was taking off and the band broke up shortly after the album was released.

The three-CD box set Ashes to Diamonds, including material by both Red Rider and Cochrane as a solo artist, was released in 1993.

Cheap Trick

User Rating:  / 0

The enduring, hard-touring, and self-caricaturing rock group Cheap Trick worked its way up to platinum sales with a blend of Beatles-style pop, hard rock chops, and a cartoonish stage act, which played Rick Nielsen's exaggerated mugging and guitar gymnastics against Robin Zander's teen-idol looks and rich, powerful voice.

In 1961 Nielsen, then in his teens, began playing locally in Rockford, Illinois, utilizing his ever-increasing collection of rare and valuable guitars. His band, the Phaetons, became the Boyz, then the Grim Reapers, and finally Fuse in 1967 with the addition of bassist Tom Petersson. One album for Epic in 1968 was generally ignored. Frustrated, Fuse, which by then included college dropout Bun E. Carlos on drums, moved to Philadelphia in 1971. As Sick Man of Europe, they enlisted ex-Nazz vocalist Robert "Stewkey" Antoni, but the group soon disbanded. After a year in Europe, Nielsen and Petersson returned to Rockford, reunited with Carlos, and a few months later asked folkie vocalist Zander to join the group they named Cheap Trick. Midwestern booking agent Ken Adamany, who had played in one of Steve Miller's high school bands, became their manager. Adamany encouraged them to develop their stage show, and Cheap Trick toured incessantly over the next several years, playing an average of 250 shows a year, opening for Kiss, the Kinks, Santana, Boston, and others.

Cheap Trick's early releases were only moderately successful in the U.S.; its 1977 debut sold 150,000 copies, while In Color and Heaven Tonight failed to crack the Top 40. In Japan, however, all three had gone gold, and the group's initial tour there in early 1978 met with hysteria reminiscent of Beatlemania. During that visit Cheap Trick recorded At Budokan, which went triple platinum in the States largely on the strength of their single "I Want You to Want Me" (Number Seven, 1979), a song that had originally appeared on In Color.

By the timeDream Police (Number Six) was released in fall 1979, the band was headlining arenas and stadiums. All Shook Up (1980), produced by George Martin, went gold in late 1980 but was considered a disappointment, producing no Top 40 singles. The band contributed "Everything Works If You Let It" (Number 44, 1980) to the Roadie< sounh3rack that year, and Nielsen and Carlos played on John Lennon and Yoko Ono's recording sessions for Double Fantasy. (They appear on The Lost Lennon Tapes and "I'm Losing You.")

As the 1980s dawned, the group's activities slowed considerably. In 1981 Epic rejected an LP, and after a flurry of lawsuits and countersuits, Cheap Trick began recording One on One. Petersson departed in 1980 to form a group with his wife, Dagmar, as vocalist. He recorded an LP in 1982, but Epic refused to release it. Pete Comita replaced him, but was himself replaced by Jon Brant before the recording of One on One (Number 39, 1982), which included two minor hits, "If You Want My Love" (Number 45, 1982) and "She's Tight" (Number 65, 1982), and eventually went gold.

Cheap Trick's fortunes began to wane with the release of Next Position Please (Number 61, 1983), produced by Todd Rundgren. Neither it nor the group's next two albums went gold, although 1985's Standing on the Edge (Number 35) contained its strongest material since Heaven Tonight. 1986's The Doctor failed to crack the Top 100, and the quartet's future seemed in jeopardy.

Petersson rejoined in 1987, and in 1988 Lap of Luxury (Number 16) was a surprise hit. The hard-rock ballad "The Flame" gave the group its first Number One single, a version of "Don't Be Cruel" (Number Four) became the first Elvis Presley cover to hit the Top Ten since the singer's death, and "Ghost Town" reached Number 33. Just as inexplicably, the band's next album, Busted (Number 48, 1990), stiffed. "Can't Stop Fallin' Into Love" (Number 12) did go Top 20. Aside from a solo album from Zander, and a duet he recorded with Heart's Ann Wilson, "Surrender to Me" (Number Six, 1988), Cheap Trick maintained a low profile until 1994's Woke Up With a Monster (Number 123, 1994), its first and only album for Warner Bros. In 1996 Epic/Legacy anthologized the band's music with a four-CD box set, Sex America Cheap Trick.

Cheap Trick was hardly finished. The band enjoyed yet another triumphant return, in 1997, when it went back to the basics, releasing its 14th album of new material on the indie label Red Ant. Cheap Trick staged a series of club gigs that year in which the band performed each of its first three albums from start to finish on three consecutive evenings. Music for Hangovers is a live album compiled from the series. By the end of the millennium Cheap Trick was still performing more than 200 shows a year. In 2000 Petersson collaborated on an album with Ken Coomer of Wilco and Robert Reynolds of the Mavericks. Swag (the band's name as well) was released in conjunction with a brief tour by Swag in 2001.

In 2001, the band released Silver, a live album recorded during a 1999 25th-anniversary show in Rockford, Illinois; it was followed by two studio albums, Special One (Number 128, 2003) and Rockford (Number 101, 2006) for newly established independent label Big 3 Records. In November 2006, "Surrender" appeared in the best-selling Guitar Hero II video game, and Cheap Trick's "Baby Muggles" is the theme music for Comedy Central's The Colbert Report. Through the fall of 2008 Cheap Trick toured nationally with Heart and Journey and finished out the year playing in Australia with Def Leppard.

Helix (Encore Feature)

User Rating:  / 0

The Canadian heavy metal band Helix formed in 1974 in Kitchener, Ontario; comprising singer Brian Vollmer, guitarists Brent Doerner and Paul Hackman, bassist Keith Zurbrigg and drummer Brian Doerner, the group debuted in 1979 with Breaking Loose.

White Lace & Black Leather followed two years later, and was the first Helix release to feature new bassist Mike Uzilac and drummer Leo Nebudeck; with 1983's No Rest for the Wicked, the group signed to Capitol, substituting Nebudeck for another new drummer, Greg "Fritz" Hinz. Bassist Daryl Gray replaced Uzilac in time for the follow-up, Walkin' the Razor's Edge, which spawned the hit "Rock You; " 1985's Long Way to Heaven, meanwhile, topped the charts in Sweden.

After touring in support of 1987's Wild in the Streets, Brent Doerner quit Helix, and the remaining quartet resurfaced with Back for Another Taste.

In 1992, Hackman was killed when the group's van rolled down a 40-foot enbankment after a concert in Vancouver; Helix forged on, however, with Brent Doerner returning to the line-up long enough to record 1993's It's a Business Doing Pleasure, which also featured guitarist Greg Frazer.

In 1998, Helix -- now comprising Vollmer, Gray, Hinz and guitarists Mark Chichkan and Gary Borden -- issued Half Alive. A collection of B Sides arrived in 2002, followed by the full-length Rockin' in My Outer Space in 2004. Their latest, Power of Rock N Roll arrived in 2007.

2010 sees the release of Helix’s 14th studio CD entitled “Vagabond Bones” featuring the re-united original 80’s line-up of Greg “Fritz” Hinz, Brent “The Doctor” Doerner, Daryl Gray, and Brian Vollmer, along with newcomer shredder Kaleb Duck. The CD contains nine previously unreleased studio tracks, one of which features a duet between Brian and Russ Graham of The Killer Dwarfs on the song “Hung Over But Still Hanging In.” Most of the songs were co-writes between Brian and Sean Kelly, who now plays guitar for Nelly Furtado. On four of the tracks, Moe Berg of Pursuit of Happiness was also a co-writer.

In September Brian had his first movie role, albeit a small bit part, in the new Trailer Park Boy’s movie “Countdown to Liquor Day.” The movie’s premiere took place in Halifax on the first day of the Atlantic Film Festival. For the event Brian and his wife Lynda, Brent (The Doctor) and Kaleb all flew out for the show, and afterwards got up and performed with the award winning Arkells at the Halifax Metro Center for 1,500 fans.

Exciting things like that have been happening throughout Helix’s thirty-five year career. And what a career it’s been! The band, formed in 1974 in Kitchener, Ontario, has sold over 2,000,000 albums, had four gold and 2 platinum albums, has had a Number One record in the country of Sweden, has toured 19 countries, 3 continents, and played with over 150 of the greatest rock and roll recording acts in the world. A list of acts the band has played with over the years sounds like a who’s-who of rock & roll: Motorhead, KISS, Motley Crue, Accept, Girlschool, Heart, Whitesnake, The Scorpions,Megadeath, Mercyful Fate,Quiot Riot,Meatloaf, Ronnie James Dio, and over 100 more! As well, the band has released many videos over the years, mostly while they were either signed to, or licensed to E.M.I./Capitol. The have also had many songs on TV shows and movies:

Today Helix continues to play in excess of fifty shows a year. In 2009 they played Rocklahoma outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma with Great White, Twisted Sister, and many more famous 80’s acts to rave reviews. The band is already booked for festivals up to August 2010.
