Eddy Grant's most popular album, 1982's Killer on the Rampage, was an international hit, slaying its way into the Top Ten in the U.S. The album spun off the smash hit "Electric Avenue," while two further tracks — "I Don't Wanna Dance" and "War Party" — also hit in the U.K. This self-composed, performed, and produced album was a magical feat by Grant which he never repeated, but it was absolutely brilliant. Generous helpings of pop are lavished across the record, foamy concoctions of strong synth beats and bright melodies, all spiced with smatterings of rock, funk, and wave. For a single, shining moment, Grant was at one with the entire music continuum, creating a nigh on perfect hybrid twining together music's strongest strands. By the time 1983 had rolled around, homercat had to buy another copy of this album because it had been played to death. At every party this one made the trip to the turntable and of course someone eventually spilled their beer on it as they were taking it out of the sleeve. Nobody ever fessed up to that one. Classic album.
MP3s that will appear on this blog will be available for only a week or so(usually far less) and are here for sampling purposes only. It is not my intention to violate copyrights. My only goal is to share my love/hate relationship with music and to expose people to music they may be unfamiliar with. If you are the creator or copyright owner of a song or anything else that might be posted here, please CONTACT ME by sending an e-mail to homercat at shaw dot ca if you wish to have it removed. I don't know why someone would want me to quit promoting their music for free and therefore putting money in their pockets by getting people to buy their stuff, but I will quit if you e mail me.
Most importantly, if you like an artist you hear here , you should definitely do your best to take the knowledge you gain here and go out and BUY THEIR ALBUMS to help support the artist.
