By Tim Brough VINE VOICE on February 6, 2003
Format: Audio CD
This has got to be one of the most overlooked hard rock debuts ever. With every single song [being] totally [awesome], and the live shows to back it up, "Kix" should have spread way beyond the band's rabid North Eastern following. Heck, I even opened for them acouple of times during the tours for the first two albums, in the little town of Sunbury at the Strand Theater as a stand up comic! But trust me, the crowds that came to see these boys weren't there for my punch lines. They were there to hear it loud, fast, and rock solid.
The debut Kix record delivered that in spades. From the opening siren wail of "Atomic Bombs" to the closing, hilarious rant about the date from hell, "Yeah Yeah Yeah," there isn't a clunker in the batch. "Heartache" even sounded like a bonafide rocking single in the Cheap Trick vien. There were touches of AC/DC, Aerosmith, and Zep to be picked out of the mix as well. Obvious credit must be given to producer Thom Allom (who helmed some of the classic Judas Priest albums) for giving this album both its bombast and its bite. You just still have to hand it to Kix, though. They tore up the East Coast like few hard rockers before them. Makes you wonder if they'd gone to LA, if they'd have been bigger.
No matter. The band and their killer "KIX" is still here for you, and not just for kids.

Kix was one of the pop metal bands that unfortunately slipped under the radar of the record buying public, even those who remember them often just remember the song "Don't Close Your Eyes" from the 1988 album "Blow My Fuse." The earlier Kix records were different beasts altogether - though the AC/DC influence was still an obvious touchstone, the early records (especially this debut) were a bit more unique and new-wave influenced.

Kix hailed from Hagerstown, MD, a blue collar town that's close to both western PA as well as West Virginia. I'm always amazed that a hair metal band that was this quirky and odd didn't get booed off the stage in that area, it seems more like a meat-and-potatoes hard rock town, but I honestly wasn't around there in the late 70's/early 80s when Kix came through the ranks (originally as the Shooze), so I don't know for sure...

Anyhow, as I grew up in Maryland, I always had a little bit of knowledge as to who Kix were, and I thought the snippet of the song "Cold Chills" in the Wayne's World movie was pretty cool. This was the 2nd Kix record I ever bought, and frankly I was a little underwhelmed at first. This record is a hell of a grower, though, with a lot of unique songwriting, hilarious lyrics, and a good mix of clean/dirty hard rock. It's definately different, but it was one of the very first hair metal records and picked up on some of the best traits of the genre - basically bands with cool riffs and a good sense of humor like AC/DC, Cheap Trick, and Van Halen thrown in a blender, but without an INSTANT classic tune like any of those bands.

If you live near the Baltimore area and get the 97.

Being from Harriburg, PA, I heard a lot of KIX in the early 1980s. KIX was from Maryland, but played the southcentral PA region quite a bit and local radio was very supportive. I had KIX's first album on vinyl and cassette. I wore both out. I bought another cassette and took it to college with me in 1983. I fraternity brother got ahold of it and wouldn't give it back after we graduated! I am now purchasing the KIX CD and never giving it up. I may not listen to it 10 hours a day like I did when I was 17, but it's a nostalgic album for me and I must have it in my collection. If you are a fan of good, hard-driving, rock/pop, you will enjoy this album. I've got to think that if KIX had put out this album in 1984-85, MTV would have had several videos in constant rotation. This band was as good as the other '80s rock bands, if not better. Althought he band broke up several years ago, I still hold out some hope for a reunion! KIX are for kids......even the 36 year old variety!

In the mid to late 80's, you couldn't pick up a Hit Parader or Circus magazine without seeing an ad prompting you to join the Kix fan club. I always used to ask my friends if they had heard the band. No one had. So about a year and a half after I saw the ad for the first time, and seeing the record in a small German record store for DM 8 (around $2), I picked it up.
This is not really metal, more or less rock in the same vein as say, the first three Cheap Trick albums. Some songs are really bouncy ("The Itch" has this cool groove and then has this kinda goofy chorus, but it really couldn't work any other way). The lyrics are pretty great. Mostly it's songs about women, more or less in a story-telling style. "Yeah Yeah Yeah" has a break in the middle where he tells a story about being with a girl who throws up on him - twice.
But overall, I recommend you join the Kix fan club TODAY! Or at least get this classic 80's rock album.

Back in or around 1981 I was a junior in high School & we were all searching for new hard rock bands!!! We had discovered Krokus, Saxon, The Scorpions, AC/DC & Judas priest But all of a sudden one of my friends played this band that sounded like a fusion between Punk & Hard rock... the song he played was "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" by Kix & as you can imagine at that age we were roaring with laughter & really enjoyed the guitar licks in this catchy song. We had no idea that this band would have the longevity it did nor the quality of Rock they would eventually be pumping out.
