CD Reviews

Very rare slice of 80's hard rock
Justin Gaines | Northern Virginia | 07/03/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Originally a glam metal act called Teeze, these Pennsylvania rockers changed their name to Roughhouse prior to releasing their 1988 self-titled debut album. You can still hear traces of the band's glam metal past, but this is a less sleazy melodic "party rock" album similar to King Kobra, Killer Dwarfs, and to some degree Ratt. There are a ton of great guitar hooks and catchy choruses, and just about every song has you reaching for the volume knob to see how loud you can go.

This was Roughhouse's only release. The band was dropped by their record label soon after its release, and the band members moved on to other projects.

This is one of those albums that if not for the internet nobody would ever get to hear. It's an extremely rare CD, and tends to command a pretty hefty price tag on the secondary market. If you run across a copy, by all means grab it. Lightning won't strike twice."
