2 1/2 Stars = Fair

Columbus Ohio's, the Godz, released their self titled debut, "the Godz," in 1978. I was in a record store looking through albums, & spied the above album cover.

How could I resist it? I was 18 & bought albums many times back then by album cover alone. It was always a hit & miss affair. Sometimes I hit it big, like Pat Travers "Making Magic," Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush, "Tales of the Unexpected, Judas Priest, "Hellbent for Leather," & the US vinyl version of Triumph, "Rock & Roll Machine. But, much to my chagrin, sometimes I did not do so well. "The Godz" were one of those choices, well kind of.

The Godz had a very rudimentary 70's heavy metal sound, somewhere in between Grand Funk & Kiss, but no where near as competent in the songwriting department. They were more of a throw back to 1973-1975 Kiss, than Grand Funk, but that element was in there to. The album only had two memorable tracks to my 18 year old mind back then, "Candy's Gone Bad," a pretty damn good cover of the Golden Earring tune, & Gotta Keep a Running,' a hilarious thundering rock anthem to themselves & their fans, who they called the Godz.

"Gotta Keep a Running," lyrics mid song:

"Now dig up ya all." Now were stoned, hot, & sweaty." "Look at us; we're everything your parents ever warned you about." "They think we're all junkies." "Everybody is some kind of junkie." "There's money junkies, booze junkies, dope junkies, sex junkies, & there is one thing they don't understand." All of us, you & I are Godz, & Godz are rock & roll junkies." "Now in every night we're in a different town." "Every night we get high." "Every night we rock & roll." Every night we go crazy & we know we're killing ourselves." "But it feels sooo good.

The Godz 1978 self-titled debut LP flat out rocks. Gotta Keep A Runnin is a rockers anthem and a gem by Eric Moore. Their cover of Candys Gone Bad also clips the original by Golden Earring. Anyone who doesn't crank this up and rock out is either deaf or dead.
The addon songs from their second LP Nothing Is Sacred doesn't have the same driving rock sound as the debut, but is still a solid add with Hey Mama and I Just Want To Go Home.
I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to Rock to the best the late 70's had to offer...
The Godz were a great band to watch live..They put on the best Rock-N-Roll show I've ever seen...blowing headliner Angel off the stage in the late 70's.

Based out of Columbus, Ohio, the band made a name for itself by playing the bar/club circuit in the Midwest, with Columbus and Cleveland - through the Agora nightclubs - being areas where a solid fan base emerged within the Buckeye State.

The original lineup of Eric Moore, Mark Chatfield, Glen Cataline and Bob Hill struck early gold by opening for KISS and Cheap Trick, along with securing a record deal with Millennium Records. Savaged by critics after the release of the self-titled debut album in 1978, the group built a small - but solid - fan base nationally through the FM rock radio "anthem" Gotta Keep a Runnin' and a sizzling cover of Golden Earring's Candy's Going Bad. A small hall tour with Angel was supplemented by headlining gigs in clubs/small halls that were promoted through pre-concert autograph signings by the band and having the dates "sponsored" by the top FM rock station in the city (which typically meant cheaper tickets and/or club shows available to "all-ages").

This CD includes the entire debut album and eight of 10 tracks from the second album, Nothing is Sacred (1979). Certainly not as bad as made out to be by the national music media, the band did not have the flash and flair that dominated the huge arena rock scene, which may not have been a bad thing; like the philosophy of coach Woody Hayes at Ohio State, the group would take to the stage and grind things out through "three yards and a cloud of dust."

This album is identical to POWER ROCK FROM THE U.S. This is simply an import version of that album. Same track listings and the like. The only difference here is the packaging. This version is for a cardboard flip case and doesn't have the jewel case. If you are looking for good straight forward bare bones rock and roll then THE GODZ are it!!! This is the original lineup and has all but one song from the first two albums. For the money this is a steal. Long since out of print albums by a band vastly overlooked and underrated. Don't let this slip through your hands and escape your collection. If you love rock and roll then the GODZ ARE ROCK AND ROLL MACHINES!!!!!

What a pleasure it was to finally pick this up on disc after all those years watching my vinyl collect dust.Can't remember the exact date but it was around 1978 or 79 that a good friend of mine and I caught the "Godz"at the old Cleveland Agora Ballroom.If your in the mood for some straight ahead "down&dirty" rock-n-roll then pick this up,pop it in,crank it up and enjoy.The production is not pristine but that justs adds to the experience.There's nothing better then to hear a song that takes you back to a simpler time and makes you forget all your troubles at least for a short time.I'm 50 years old but I'll be a "Rocker"till the day I die and to paraphrase the "Godz"I gotta keep a runnin"..............Godz Rock&Roll!!!
