CD Reviews

Paul Shortino & Co. Return From The Dead or Japan or Whereve
Mr. Sinister | El Cajon, CA USA | 10/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For years now it has been impossible to get the first and only two Rough Cutt albums on CD unless they were ripped from a file-share site or you spread out the dough to get the Japanese Import versions which are usually outrageously priced. The back catalogue of Warner Bros. apparently had written Rough Cutt off or something and that was that. Remember 1985 & '86. The hair metal explosion was in full force with all kinds of crazy bands (Most of which were incredibly lame) and Rough Cutt was one of the shining spots in that whole era. LA-based. Rough Cutt had been under the thumb of Ronnie James Dio and his wife Wendy for some time. The band had produced then-future Dio guitarist Craig Goildie and was one of the hidden commodities of the LA club scene of the mid-80's. I saw them on tour with Dio in late '85 and they were great. The winning factor to Rough Cutt was Paul Shortino's awesome vocals. He later left the band to take over a Kevin DuBrow-less Quiet Riot, but that was a bad career move. Had he stuck with the Rough Cutt thing at the time, who knows? They could have been mildy sucessful. They were a pretty tight band. As I said, one of the shining moment of the whole hair metal revolution. I believe Shortino is still affiliated with the name Rough Cutt...but it's way tooo late in the game to make a comeback. Bottom line: You can finally buy the Orginal Rough Cutt album and it's follow-up Rough Cutt Wants You! for a reasonable price. Believe me the money is well spent. Cutt Your Heart Out, Piece Of My Heart (Janis Joplin cover), Kids Will Rock, Rock The USA, etc... A tight little cluster of good 80's metal tunes. Shortino wails!"
Double Shot of Rough Cutt !

"Hell Yea ! I was one of those metal head kids ya saw in the 80's. I loved to find the obscure metal bands that kicked butt. I'd see groups in concert like Keel, Helix, Accept, Loudness, TNT, Stryper, etc. I prided myself on having a wicked metal-head collection of 80's\early 90's Metal music. If it was a metal band in the 80's I had it or heard it. Rough Cutt was one of my favorite metal bands. They had a raw but seductive way of sounding and with Paul Shortino's unique voice it glued it all together. The song Black Widow is a song that Cinderella's Night Songs could never touch. The cover song they did of Janis Joplin's "Piece of my heart" truly would make her proud to hear. The song "Dreamin again" just takes me to another time and place of metal paradise, lol. I was lucky enough to see Rough Cutt LIVE at the Hollywood Sportatourium in Hollywood Florida back when they opened for Dio and toured for their first album. The show kicked butt as well as Dio. Damn I wish the metal of the 80's was still going strong today but thats life! Im glad I have my 80's\early 90's metal cd's to listen to and give me good memories. I'm honored to have Rough Cutt in my collection! Tear it up metal heads of the 80's !"

"Yep,I give this a four star rating,specially for the price.Hadn't heard or seen ANYTHING of or about Rough Cutt in years now.Here,you get both their lp's mastered onto one disc.'Rough Cutt'('85)and 'Rough Cutt Wants You'('86).More or less just straight-ahead '80's hard rock.Remember I saw the band when they were support act for Dio's 'Sacred Heart' tour.Line-up:Paul Shortino(one-time Quiet Riot vocalist)-vocals,Chris Hager-guitar,Matt Thor-bass,Amir Derakh-guitar&synth and David Alford-drums.Should appeal to fans of Tyketto,D.A.D.,Love/Hate and Hanoi Rocks."
