This album totally rock, early skid row style

From: M. Allen Date: January 25, 2002 at 13:01
Now this is how hard rock is supposed to be done! Turn the guitars all the way up, turn on the attitude, lay down the hooks, and power home the choruses. Definitely one of the better indies of the last decade or so. Has a Steelheart-meets-Lillian Axe vibe to it, and that's a darn good vibe to heave. Great songs, great vocals, great production...just an all around great CD.

From: HG Date: February 16, 2002 at 19:12
A killer band that came along a bit too late to make it big. The singer sounds a lot like Phil Lewis of LA Guns.

From: David Date: April 3, 2002 at 11:32
Does anyone know if the band had anymore releases because they just totally kick arse?

From: Desslar Date: April 8, 2002 at 1:32
The acoustic songs are pretty good and original, surprising they didn't catch on with radio. The rest of the album is pretty boring though - you're heard it all before.

From: TIM Date: April 30, 2002 at 13:28
I agree with HG once again. The singer sounds a lot like Phil Lewis. There is a hint of Love/Hate in places, just not as aggressive. I'd give it an 8.0.

From: David Date: August 16, 2002 at 3:37
Purrfect Kat, Please tell me you have heard this cd because I couldn't find it in your collection and it is truly one of the best releases ever!!!

From: David Date: August 16, 2002 at 4:05
Also Purrfect Kat your collection won't be purrfect untill you have NO RESPECT's album.

From: David Date: August 22, 2002 at 1:09
If I could have 4 bands to make comebacks, they would be these guys along with Saints And Sinners, Wildside and Ugly Kid Joe.

From: nitrodoll Date: August 22, 2002 at 3:26
is there something that nitrodoll doesn't like on theze pages?? d'yeah, i wasn't too found of this effort..sounded like la guns on a bad day..it had its moments and applause for releasing such an album in the middle of the grunge thing, but the songs weren't strong enough ..sorry.. nitrodoll1974@hotmail.com

From: David Date: August 22, 2002 at 3:53
Nitrodoll, do me a favor and go to your cd collection and re-listen to Blinded By Fire, Your Light and Take Your Money. They are just Brilliant! I know the production isn't all that special but I think the production adds to the music, it's raw and rough but it suites the music.

From: nitrodoll Date: August 22, 2002 at 6:16
no problemo david, the only song that i really dig is "shine on".i never said i hated this album but it's not really my thing...sorry..you know like def leppard , they sold millions of records and are faves among melodic rockers but -here it comes- i never really liked them...it's all a matter of taste... cheers rockers... nitrodoll1974@hotmail.com

From: ARXONTAS Date: January 13, 2003 at 12:23
I think i must start talking about the cds ebay value or for my huge colLection and that will make me the "great fucker" who can judge what is good and what is not.NO WAY.I ll say only one thing. THESE GUYS ROCKS! For me at least...Absolutely No Alternative...

From: George Karl Date: January 6, 2004 at 11:39
Hey! Someone emailed me this site. I played guitar in Slam. Thanks for the compliments...I love that there are people that dig our sh*t as much as we dug making it. FYI the band is still together and play occasionally in the midwest- mostly Il and WI. We did a show Jan 3rd 2004 which was the first one in a year but we're looking at making another run. It's something we just can't put down. Also, if you hear any commercials for Comp USA (Jimmeny Glick), it's Rob Creek doing the music/production.

From: Slikk Vicc Date: August 21, 2004 at 13:33
Great songs, similar to style to LA guns but still original sounding,.....Just buy the f**ker!

From: Geoff Date: September 14, 2004 at 2:20
I'm intrigued now to whip this out again and hear the LA Guns influence everyone speaks off because I missed it first time round. Basically, I got a CDR of this album, loved it and had an original within a week. Not brilliant by any means, but anyone who loves well played hard rock is going to like this one. Great songs, great CD. Highly recommended.

From: David Date: April 8, 2005 at 2:19
George, can you please leave you email address?? Thanks David from Suncity Records

From: Joe Date: April 15, 2005 at 1:48
Ive seen this band plenty of times in Illinois . They rock!! last time I seen them they were going by the name CHROME.

From: Dan Friml Date: April 15, 2005 at 14:39
This album kicks every ass!!!! Excellent stuff in the vein of LA Guns, Spread Eagle...! Recommended to ALL!!!!

From: Jimmy D Date: August 23, 2005 at 18:45
These guys originally went by the name "Valentino", and they were pretty big in the Chicago area in the late 80's from what I can remember. I think all of the same band members from Valentino moved on to be in Slam St. Joan, but some of them changed their last names (or "stage names"). Not sure why they changed the name of the band, though. Maybe to avoid being confused with the another band of that era, "Valentine"?
