DANGEROUS TOYS



June 4, 1991 - 2021: 30 years of: Hellacious Acres.

Welcome to the land of no-return.

Austin's cowboy-rockers are back, meaner and meatier. One of the last hardrock punches before the scene's shift of Autumn 1991. The TOYS have been teas'n and pleas'n since their 1989 raw eponymous Dangerous Toys debut LP, and now it was time for one last ride thru these untamed lands.

The opening-track, the quick shoot-out of "Gunfighter" is all you need for that xtra mojo. The battle ain't over until you flex and use some "Sticks & Stones" and "Sugar, Leather & The Nail", some of the the most obnoxious hardrock, not from the great Sunset Strip area.

A little louder, as the raspy grooves of "Line 'Em Up" is all hooks and loud boggie-rock, while more addictive rhymthms are exposed on "Gimme' No Lip". The BAD COMPANY redition of "Feel Like Makin' Love" is a fine heavier southern version of this '75 classic.

After the second-wave of hardrock of 1988, a harder-edge wave, all odd's were off has who would competition the GNR, L.A.GUNS and that other, harder rock band from Texas: PANTERA.

The highly addictive DANGEROUS TOYS gang are not a glam band, but an honest rawk-n-roll band, that sadly got caught in the new alternatives of the times.
