Released in 1992, "Wicked" is the sixth album by Jeff Dahl but his third solo album after the excellent "Ultra Under"! It contains eleven rock & raw originals & one cover: "The Moon Upstairs" from Mott The Hoople's "Brain Capers".
"...Jeff Dahl cut "Wicked" with a lot of the same people and no hint of change in approach from "Ultra Under" — and it's just as good.The studio cast includes drummer Dave Nazworthy (of Chemical People) and guitarist Paul Cutler (45 Grave/Dream Syndicate). Amid such generic originals as "Lisa's World," "Real High School Romance" and "Radio Babylon," Dahl shifts his choice of covers a little by doing "The Moon Upstairs" from Mott the Hoople's 1972 Brain Capers. Piano continues to be a useful element: John Manikoff's addition to the full-power "Just Like They Should" does the deed here..." Source

JEFF DAHL "Wicked"

Jeff Dahl is an American musician. Born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1955, but in 1960 the Dahl family relocated to Hawaii. Jeff recorded his first single, Rock N Roll Critic, in 1977 and it was released on the Doodley Squat label. Since then Jeff served time in Vox Pop (Germs, 45 Grave & Dream Syndicate members) , The Angry Samoans (1985, stepped in for "Metal" Mike Saunders), and Powertrip as well as playing & recording with Dead Boys' legend Cheetah Chrome and ex-Adolescents Rikk Agnew.

There are approximately 26 full length albums released (Studio, live, bootlegs, Best Of collections), and in the neighborhood of 100 7" singles. Some are in print, some are not. Jeff has done extensive touring and studio production work in the USA, Europe and Japan.

Got this one on CD and I just like to tell that the only cover in this album is "The moon upstairs": "Tonight" is not the MC5 song: Thanks for sharing!! Un saludo macanudo from Spain.
