Review

Yep this is the same WEAPONS band (from Detroit) who released the pretty lame "Captive audience" LP in 1985. You think they wouldn't dare to cover that well known sucker "Summer in the city" just like I hoped? Of corpse they would! At least the track is now listenable, pretty much played like the original but heavier, a Hard Rock version. Let's quickly turn the record coz "Easy to please" shows a totally different band! I'd even say that track is much heavier than the heaviest stuff on previous LP although it still comes with a poser refrain (some might say "catchy"). But the Metal surrounding the refrain is typically US Hair Metal alike with cool raw guitar solos. The label Military Records seems to be a local Michigan indie company so it comes close to a private pressing. Nice find and for that price of 8 $ you'd be a jerk to refuse buying this EP. If only the A-side would contain some Metal too...
