So where did any of these great musicians in this band go?

From: Dave Date: August 27, 2001 at 11:49
This is one of the best of the better unsigned bands. The only thing i would have done different is got a more solid sound it's a little tiny but a great band that deserved better if you love unsigned bands these guys & gal rock as good as the pros

From: Steve Date: September 18, 2001 at 4:52
This band was close to a deal with Atlantic records, but didn't make it. The guitarist is still performing in the Kansas City area.

From: Roger Date: December 10, 2001 at 18:00
Seen this band Live as Allison Payne in Minot North Dakota and they rocked and Randi was just an awesome lead singer and not hard to look at either. I also remember Freddies great guitar work. I wish I knew what they were up to now days. I was lucky enough to find the CD at a flea market. Have some great photos of the band somewhere.

From: Chili Date: April 30, 2004 at 15:34
I you want to get an Atomic Angel CD you might be able to do so by asking one of the members yourself. Freddie Francis' email address can be found a the web site of his current band Saucy Jack. The Web Address is www.saucyjackband.com. By the way this band is killer, playing every weekend in the Kansas City area.

From: Sheri Date: September 20, 2004 at 2:00
I ran across a CASSETTE tape of these guys...befriended them in Montgomery, Alabama and they became fast fav's of mine. They are just as great offstage as on, and I would LOVE the chance to say hi to Randi and Freddie. If anyone has any info on that, please send it to me at: aspynn72@yahoo.com Thanks!

From: james.zaksr Date: June 7, 2007 at 11:24
I rememeber the band right after Atomic Angel came out. I saw them play at The Royal Grove in Lincoln, Nebraska. They were awesome. I was lucky enough to get all their autographs and a stick from Terry. I miss all of you and your music. Been looking for a mint CD and not had any luck. Freddie, if you or anybody else in the band could help me out with that, please email me at james.zaksr@us.army.mil. Atomic Angel is the best!

From: lmats Date: August 29, 2007 at 12:32
These guys came to the Iron Horse in Minnesota and I had a blast partying with them. Kevin, How have you been? Still have your cd. Remember the hot tub at that house you guys stayed at?

From: weeborg Date: April 10, 2008 at 10:58
Looks like no one's been here in a while,but isn't the internet great? I also had the pleasure of working with these incredible musicians,however briefly,they were by far the most talented people I've ever known.It was very exciting to read the entries from Fred,Kevin,Russ and Kerry.I would like to locate Randi,I too,am in Ohio,possibly very near her if she's near her parents.And would also like to hear from Fred,Norm,Kevin or whoever else might be interested in getting in touch.And Freddie,I'm very sorry about what happened, and hope you're able to forgive me.I can be reached at weeborg@hotmail.com if you'd care to. Wendy. P.S. Buy the CD, I promise you it ROCKS !!

From: Robb Date: April 15, 2008 at 17:54
Hey guys! A.A.'s 2nd bass player here again. Not sure if anyone checks in here anymore, but I got a message from Justin through myspace awhile back and have since lost his email address. Anybody know how to get in touch with him? How bout Flea? Larry? Randi? By the way, Still Waiting should be on here as well! Can reach me at robbjrudd@hotmail.com or robbjrudd@att.blackberry.net. Malhalo!

From: Delbert Date: January 3, 2010 at 13:07
Okay, this is one of the finest female fronted hard rock US indies that I've heard for some time. This CD blew me away the first time I put it in my CD player. Imagine ANNICA, LAOS, ZOTL and AURORA blended together with a hot babe singer and shredding guitar player that absolutely blows away most of the major label releases from the late 80's and early 90's. This in the same league as ANNICA and other top female fronted bands. I can rave on and on about this one....just get it if you ever get the chance.
