Warriors – Wild Cherry 12″

The Warriors‘ second release from 1986. The four songs are catchy, melodic punk with a bit of rock‘n'roll (and one ballad) thrown in, quite similar in style to their first 7“ from the same year. Some copies came with a freebie flexi of the song Feel Good, my 12“ sadly came without it.

It’s still very much feelgood music! In a good way!

Warriors – Born To Ride 7“

The Warriors (a.ka. Nickey & The Warriors / Road Warriors) are another splendid example of musicians for whom 1, 2 or 5 bands were not enough. Seems like almost each of the dozen band members went through another dozen of big name bands. Try drawing a pedigree chart, I dare you! Anyways, this 7“ from 1986 has three tracks of great, melodic punk rock; the title track is a cool interpretation of the doo-wop progression, but the stand out imho is the closing track I Do‘nt [sic!] Care. Great stuff!

In Finland they doo-wop progression is called the Aku Ankka (=Donald Duck) progression. Important to know.
