TIM, This album sounds right down your alley! They are surpose to sound like a cross between Poison & Rock Candy.

From: TIM Date: April 30, 2003 at 5:32
I was the first one to bid.

From: David Date: October 17, 2003 at 9:35
Come on people! One of you locals has got to know something about this release? I'm looking at you MButt and you Ripper!

From: purrfect-kat Date: October 17, 2003 at 11:03
France can Lay It On Me anytime because they Rock!! . . . . The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't enuff songs. . If You like Big Guitars and drums that pound out the Beat with every catchy chorus then this is the cd for You . . There are three rockers and one cool ballad called "Dangerous Waters" . (Excellent) . . . If I had to compare them to someone then I guess I would go with Canada's own "HELIX"

Samples just added. If only it wasn't only 4 tracks...

Why Didn't These Guyz Release More Than 4 Trakz...These Guys Are Terrific....All 4 songs Are Killers...Awesome....

From: San Diego Gal Date: February 22, 2004 at 8:46
I used to go see these guys play alot in the early 90's. They were all broke, so they couldn't afford to make demos, and they almost never played their own music; they were a cover band. They changed lead singers (the new guy was... Paul?), and changed their name to Scoundrel... and then eventually broke up. I know there were some other original songs of theirs, including an amusing one called "She's Got Balls," but I don't remember if they managed to record anything after that first demo.

From: PauloFernandes Date: February 22, 2004 at 12:26
Great EP, only four songs but all of them are great - "Dangerous waters" is a masterpiece

From: Maynard Date: February 29, 2004 at 2:49
Yo San Diego Gal I co-wrote "She's got Balls" and played with Dave and company quite a few times....ah the good 'ol days!! Scoundrel came out with an Album in '95 intitled "tell me if this hurts" with the track "She's got Balls" and 9 other tracks that were metal: "Welcome to my grave", the Punk Metal of "Tweeker Chicks" to the blues of "tuna can man". I haven't spoken to Dave in about 7 to 8 years, I only hope He and Tim/Darren and Family are doing well and the rest of the Band is good. I highl

From: San Diego Gal Date: March 3, 2004 at 7:12
I remember when Dave used to call everyone "Maynard"; I guess YOU remember that too, huh, lol? I can only remember one person off the top of my head that used to get up and sing with the band; were you by any chance known as "Phantom" in those days?

From: Maynard Date: March 9, 2004 at 1:00
San Diego Gal, I'm not "Phantom", I played Guitar with them off and on. It was a fun time and I miss those days, but like everything it comes and goes....just wish I had a time machine.

From: San Diego Gal Date: March 16, 2004 at 6:35
You didn't by any chance have a VERY possessive blonde girlfriend at that time, did you? If you did, then I DID see you play with the band at least once.

From: San Diego Gal Date: March 16, 2004 at 6:44
Wait, wait, I remember... Kevin McCool... was THAT you?!! :-)

From: Corwin Date: July 13, 2004 at 18:07
Just heard this one .... great release ! The ballad absolutely smokes ! The other 3 are no less than killers ... but why only 4 songs ???? why ????? oh god why ?????

From: Paradigm411 Date: February 21, 2005 at 10:48
wow... thought i would never hear anything about this band ever again... used to see them at J.J. Hot Rocks down in Imperial Beach when I was in the Navy... Was hoping that one day I could find Sammy again... need to talk to him about "Dangerous Waters" song... any help from anyone would be great.... paradigm411@yahoo.com ... it could be putting some $$$ in his pockets.

From: shannonk Date: August 22, 2005 at 16:09
To all who knew of Dave Mahoney....sadly he passed away on the evening of August 17th 2005. Rock on Dave.................

From: shannonk Date: August 22, 2005 at 16:12
Would that be Maynard G Krebs???? You can't hide Paul!!!

From: JarWi Date: December 19, 2005 at 15:54
Wow wow wow, though we have to do here with not more than 4 songs, which is the only weak point of this album, each and every single 1 of them kicks ass! Get it somehow or regret!

From: Geoff Date: August 15, 2006 at 2:43
Wow, have to admit I'm not really getting the same vibe as everyone else about the other 3 tracks on this CD. As far as I'm concerned there's 3 pretty average hard rock tracks and a f*cking outstanding ballad. 'Dangerous waters' is really something special, an excellent track... but the rest, IMO, is pretty average indie hard rock.

From: maynard Date: November 3, 2006 at 22:39
Hey shannonk, France was a great Band and the Bassist/Vocalist Dave Mahoney is a long time Friend of mine (I've known him since 1976) and I'm in total disbelief that Dave passed away! If this is true please email me any contact info for Tim or Darren. I would really appreciate this. Thank you: wrathcore@hotmail.com

From: juan carlos Date: December 20, 2008 at 0:22
Great drumīs sound, strong choruses, big guitars and ok/average singer mmm.. Itīs cool EP, Hardrock of course. The ballad "Dangerous Waters" is obviously the highlight, i love "Shoot to Kill" too. 7.5/10

From: Delbert Date: January 10, 2010 at 14:05
Lots of comments on this totally awesome San Diego band. Three of the tracks are rockers with the fourth being one of my all time favorite ballads ever......"Dangerous Waters". Sound wise.....I always imagine hearing a cross between great party/glam bands like ROCK CANDY, HELIX and having them play a few sets with early BONJOVI !!!! The downside......there's only 4 tracks to enjoy on this disc. If you haven't scored this CD for your collection, don't pass up the chance if it ever presents itself.....

From: Hairbanger Date: January 24, 2010 at 18:13
dangerous waters are one of the best ballads I ever listened!

From: metalmaniac777 Date: February 6, 2010 at 14:00
While the trio of rockers on this hair-metal indie are perfectly fine in their own right, it's the power ballad ("Dangerous Waters") that totally steals the show, an instant classic that's more enjoyable than having a gaggle of naked Swedish supermodels lick every inch of your body with their tongues. Whoever wrote that song was definitely on their A-game that day, no doubt about it. As for comparisons...imagine a mixture of Helix, Jax, and Rock Candy.
