|ALKATRAZZ formed out of Maidstone, England in 1980 & were impulsively signed by RCA Records that same year during the beginnings of the NWOBHM craze. They managed to release 2 LPs ("Young Blood" & "Radio 5")in 1981 & 1982 respectively, as well as 3 coinciding Singles for those LPs with an unofficial BBC Radio EP surfacing in 1982. The act were noted for touring back in their heyday on a 3-way billing with MAGNUM & the TYGERS OF PAN TANG although neither of their albums garnered much attention. The late Clive Burr would also briefly join the group in 1983 until moving on to other notable acts. Once the band was dropped from their label, they would call it a day around 1983. Fronted by Aussie vocalist Craig "Stevens" Pinkney, the group displayed some fairly credible 70's styled Classic Rock with traces of FOREIGNER & BAD COMPANY as well as mixing in some elements of the NWOBHM movement. ALKATRAZZ should have garnered much more attention than they would ultimately receive.|
