THE RANGEHOODS 1


12' EP THE RANGEHOODS Rough town 1984 Exploding/Big D. records 320 kbps

Rough town / Chip on my shoulder / Dangerous / Used to be you / Not a boy .

Produced by The Rangehoods

The Rangehoods : Steve Pearson : guitar , vocals / Pat Hewitt : guitar , vocals / Tony Lease : bass , vocals / Don Kammerer : drums.

In 1984 Steve Pearson ( of the great band The Heat(er)s : check their lp "Have an idea" or their cd "Smoke" on Chuckie-Boy records !) and Pat Hewitt founded the Rangehoods. Trying to shake the Beatlesque vibe, they became the bad boys about town with louder guitars, less harmonies and more screaming vocals. Once again the band was popular in the local scene and as they do shows today, it's obvious they are "not forgotten" by their fans. Famous for their original songs and their Gibson Super 400's with Vox amps. They released one vinyl EP "Rough Town" (also on cassette) & one vinyl LP "Long Way Home" (also in CD format).These vinyl's are sometimes available at gemm.com or Craig Moerer, Records by Mail.
Thanks to Manu & Fabien for sound & scans .
