A good UFO album
on 13 December 2011
In the media, 'No place to run' was considered the end of an era when Schenker jumped on a motorbike to Spain and UFO went into decline. The doleful album cover, depicting the band posing outside a dis-used petrol station, epitomised the UK recession under Thatcher's monetarist experiment but Paul Chapman, Caaaaardiff boy and Schenker replacement, made a seamless transition. In fact, he could really play.
Highlights : 'Lettin' go', 'Gone in the night', 'This fire burns tonight', the title track.
Good 1980s classic rock where guitars aren't timid and the drummer and bassist are no shrinking violets either.
And, finally, an awesome vocalist and front-man of a genre that is sadly now obsolete.
A bit like Barcelona on a slightly off-day, but still superior to other outfits.
