Black 'n Blue


Another band that had frequented many a 'wants list' were glam metal stalwarts Black 'n Blue, led by the irrepressible Jaime St James. Alongside Pretty Maids and Babylon AD, the boys added a welcome dose of crunch to the Firefest Saturday and certainly delivered to the sold-out crowd. Take a trip down 80s memory lane to the School of Hard Knocks as WE show YOU the night. The strong are certainly rocking right here on Rocktopia ...

Review:

"Another coup for the organisers was to bring Black n Blue to the UK for the first time in 30 years. Along with the likes of Autograph, Dokken and Quiet Riot they were pioneers in the mid-eighties of the brasher, glammier style of American rock with its heart in LA, which was to dominate for the next few years.

However despite a long career B n B never achieved major success themselves and it was not hard to see why with some well played but derivative, often AC/DC influenced, material such as 'Nasty Nasty' and 'Miss Misery'.

They unashamedly still had the glam metal look, notably singer Jaime St James who was almost a caricature of the larger than life frontman, while the two more recent recruits guitarists Brandon Cook and Stacey Blades were a well matched pair who gave the sound a beefy feel. Ironically it was a newer song 'Target' which was among the strongest.

However the gig really came to life with a home run of songs from their 1984 debut - suddenly memories came flooding back of being lent the album by the university friend who got me into all the American bands of the day. I was joining the fist punching to the likes of 'The Strong Will Rock', 'Wicked Bitch' and 'Hold On To 18′.

I won't be rushing out to rediscover their back catalogue but they were highly accomplished and fun performers and against expectations I thoroughly enjoyed their set."
