In case anyone cares......Zwarte' has 5 albums now. This is their first one. They also have: Easy St., Hit The Road, Zwarte' IV and their newest album, Loud America. That one just came out in 2001. You can see them live every year at the Sturgis Bike Rally in Sturgis SD. They sound like Little Ceasar / ZZ Top. www.zwarte.com

file in the "hardly rock" category.......these johnny-come-lately poison/pearl jam/jump on the current musical bandwagon wannabes always amazed me at how far a lot of hype and lights and absolutely no talent can take you, rumor has it mommy and daddy were rich,which would explain a lot---"wouldn't book em at a benefit" pete carson

Zwarte falls somewhere between the campy, glam sounds of T-Rex and the anthemic rock of Kiss. Plenty of sing-along choruses. I can see why they were such a popular band in the home state. The disc starts off on a rather mellow note with a ballad. I think I would have liked to have heard a full throttle rocker here, but alas, there really aren't any on CD. Most the songs are of the power ballad variety with a few mid-paced rockers like Lizzy & Loco PD thrown in. www.nolifetilmetal.com/zwarte.htm

These guys put on a helluva show. I think that Randall sounds alot like David Lee Roth in his vocal delivery. He talks alot during the songs. Most songs tell a story which is very cool. I highly recommend visiting their website at www.zwarte.com and picking up this album or Hit the Road, Holy Roller or their recently released greatest hits album Bullets.

A good band all the way around, even with ongoing member changes. More than their music, it's their interaction with the fans that draws people, although the music is also good. Johnny-come-latelys? Hardly. They've been around a long time, and I've NEVER heard them do a Poison or Pearl Jam song. They do a few covers, and do them well, but not too many. But then again, I've only seen them play thirty times or so over the last 7 or 8 years, so maybe I've missed something. Very good musicians, too.

Just heard this for the first time and thought it was pretty good bar rock. The lead singer sounds similiar to Mark Knopfler on several of the songs. All Music Guide has this band listed under Alternative Rock which is very misleading because they're not. They sound nothing like Pearl Jam or Nirvana. I'd say it's more of a laid back Little Ceaser-type sound. I too like the way some of the songs tell a story. Very odd that the album starts off with a ballad.

This is a case of a band being KILLER Live,but not being able to transfer that to a studio setting( which is Very hard to do).Seen them many times in Decatur Il...Very GOOD Record if you have an understanding of the live presentation of the songs!! They have a Cinderella,Thin lizzy(yeah, sounds stupid,but they do)Ratt like sound. Loco P.D,Lucy,Slippin Girl are Killer songs...Maybe they could get some big band to redo them!!!!!

Not really great production but I remember seeing these guys for the first time in a dump club in western Illinois back around 1990. I've seen many club bands but nothing with the catchy originals that these guys had. Sort of a Tom Petty meets Aerosmith meets AC/DC. Back in the day the crowd knew the lyrics to Lucy and would request it every chance they got. This line up was young, hungry and put on a great live show whether it was a small dump or 500 seat nightclub.

This is the first of a considerable number of releases coming from this hard rock/ glam sounding band in 1992. It's filled with mid paced rockers and power ballads and to me, the band's sound falls somewhere in a mix of KISS, LITTLE CEASAR and maybe T REX. They were known to play live in this Mid/Southern Illinois area where I live several years ago, hence, I do find their discs here and there.
