7 opmerkingen:

  1. Cruz Ducks appeared in "UK Thrash Metal Assault Volume 1" compilation (cassette version) with songs, "Old Tom" and "Lobster Forever". (from Metal Archives website)

  2. Hey Dan
    I can give you a bit more info on this - I was the original Bassist/Vocal for Cruz Ducks. The bands line up at the time was Task, Guitar/Vocals, Cracknell, Guitar, Ross, Drums and me on Bass/Vocals.
    The Track listing is;
    1) Terminal Disease
    2) Sun and Sand and Sea and Beer
    3) Pyrophobic
    4) Lobster Fever (this was mispelt on the "UK Thrash Metal Assault" Compilation)
    5) Old Tom
    6) Holiday in Sao Gabriel do Rio Negro
    7) Chemical Abuse (I think...)
    The band went on to support some decent Hardcore outfits, recorded a second demo called "Chase the Dragon" and then changed line up and renamed themselves The Crack Babies.
    They built up a good Hardcore following as the Crack Babies.
    Hope this helps - if you're looking for more good, unknown Crossover try The Desecrators. They've just released an old demo on vinyl called Speed up the Death Process and is well worth a listen.

  3. Hey Dan,
    Can you ask Steve about the lyrics of "Holiday in Sao Gabriel do Rio Negro" please?

  4. Afternoon Dan/Marcelo
    Sorry for the delay coming back to you.
    Holiday in Sao Gabriel do Rio Negro talks about the cynical deforestation of vast areas of the Brazilian Amazon region by multi nation businesses. The effect ruined huge areas of the rain forest, and dislodged indigenous groups in pursuit of that bad old thing, greed and wealth.....this was written in 1987 and nothing's changed.

    I've managed to track down a decent copy of the follow up demo "Chase the Dragon", which I'll email.
    Cheers for now.

  5. Thanx for the explanation Steve.
    I'm Brazilian and I thought this song talks about Brazil.
    BTW, CRUISE DUCKS was great band. I'm happy on dicovering great 80's UK bands all the time.

    Hope you can post more UK classics in vein of CRUISE DUCKS very soon.

  6. Could you re-upload this please? I would love to hear this. Thanks!

  7. any chance of re-upping this somewhere. would love to hear it again. thanks!
