"Suck" was from South Africa and existed for less than 1 year. They managed to produce ONLY ONE album in 1971, but what an album! Cover versions of "Aimless Lady", "21st Century Schizoid Man", "Into the Fire", "Sin's a Good Man's Brother" and - as a bonus - "War Pig"; the only one composition was written by the band members - "The Whip". The musicians were absolutely top class and pretty close to Grand FunkLive Album, Blue CheerVincebus Eruptum, Black Sabbath, but mainly to early Funk and Cheer in their minimalistic approach. Definitely they do belong to the very narrow circle of proto-metal pioneers. Originally it was issued on "Parlophone" with the note: "This album must be played at maximum volume to be appreciated".
The band: Stephen Gilroy (guitar), Saverio Grande (drums), Louis Joseph Forer (bass), Andrew Ionnides on vocals which are exceptional and sometimes more balanced than those of the original versions.Producer - Julian Laxton of Freedom's Children - Galactic Vibes. If you do appreciate classic hard rock you shouldn't miss this CD.Time to Suck

People, I have the original Album on this one here that's been bought in 1971 at Woolworths Store in Torrence, Calif. So I've really didn't compair the CD sound versus the vinyl! I've heard that their is bad talk about that one! Another Album played quit well on KLOS and KMET in those Days. What I take on this Album, this was an experimental job with the Band once they've broke up and went their seperate whys! You'll be surprise were they've went too! My Songs on this Album on Parlophone Records of South Africa are, "Aimless Lady", "War Pigs", "The Whip", "Elegy" and "21st Century Schizoid Man"! The five songs I Dig the most from The "Keef Hartley Band", on His "Overdog Album" and His First Album are, "Roundabout", "Half Breed", "Leavin' Trunk", "Don't be Afraid", "Sacked" and "The Dansette Kid". Go's Good Together! O K, One more to throw in here, "Freedom" on ABC Records, and that's "Have Love Will Travel", "Man Made Laws", "Cry Baby Cry" ( Cover! ), "Frustrated Women", "Time Of The Season" ( Cover! ) and the awesome "Stay With Me" Thanks!

This LP is full of competent renditions of songs that didn't need to be re-done and weren't necessarily improved with this effort. It reminds me of those K-Tel knockoffs of the past: "Heavy Hits of the 70's!" where they imply you are getting the originals, but really you are getting the "houseband" versions. Not real sure why this album was even released. What did the band hope to achieve? I guess if you are going to name your band Suck, you aren't hoping for a lot.
