Thundermug - Strikes (CD)
Regular price €12,90
In one of those confusing instances where albums are issued with the same title in different countries, the American LP titled Thundermug Strikes (on Epic) has a substantially different track listing than the Canadian one called Thundermug Strikes (on Axe). Though the Canadian version of Thundermug Strikes is their actual debut full-length album, the U.S. version is actually a compilation of tracks from their first two Canadian LPs, the original Thundermug Strikes and its follow-up, Orbit. It did a reasonable job of representing the sound of this Canadian hard rock band, including some of its better-known tracks with Africa, Orbit, Garden Green, Jane J James, and a cover of the Kinks' You Really Got Me. It might be worth checking out for those who like their early-'70s hard rock with pop/rock influences, decent vocal harmonies, and unusual song construction.
