Ex-Danger Danger vocalist Ted Poley and his partner in crime, Gerhard Pilcher, are back after "Long Way From Home" album. Their "on-off" relationship with the Frontiers label seems to be "on" again, and the first result of the renewed partnership is "LoveMetal". "LoveMetal" is a concept album about the ups and downs of love, and indeed nine of its ten songs (one instrumental not withstanding) deal with relationships. Excellent follow-up to a less than stellar debut offering. "Summer Nights", "Lovemetal" and "I'll Never Break Your Heart" are great melodic tracks. This is better than the debut but still lags behind the Poley days of D2.
Ted Poley, former Danger Danger and Bone Machine vocalist, has delivered one of his finest performances with "Melodica". Forget anything BAD you may have read or heard or even THOUGHT because this album DELIVERS! Ted has returned with a collection that is a wonderful example of melodic hard rock at its finest.
Works for violin and piano are an important part of Cyril Scott’s chamber music. This disc presents three sonatas which span his output. The capricious and ruminative First Violin Sonata ranks among the most convincing and successful of his earlier large-scale compositions. Sonata Melodica is a more relaxed yet equally quixotic work, while the Third Violin Sonata is one of the most inventive from his later years.
An outfit convened by by ex-PROPHET, DANGER DANGER, BONE MACHINE and MELODICA man Ted Poley in union with Austrian guitarist and MELODICA colleague Gerhard Pichler. The duo debuted the 'Big' album live at the Z Rock festival in the UK during October of 2002. Ted Poley and Gerhard Pichler's new album is essentially the third Melodica album.
"Greatestits Vol. 1" - Special Collectors Limited Edition is an awesome collection (Vol. 1 is actually a 2 CD set) that includes 33 songs taken from all of Ted's work outside of Danger Danger. It includes re-masters of some of Ted's most popular songs from his 2 recent Solo CD's, Bonemachine, Melodica, Prophet, and songs done with other artists such as JK Northrup, Jack Frost, Jun Senoue, Vic Rivera, and rare unreleased stuff like original song demos, hard to find rare tracks including the impossible to find Xmas Song, the Japan exclusive Takoyaki Rock, and NEW STUFF too.
"Cockroach" is a Danger Danger album released in 2001 as a 2 CD set. One CD features singer Ted Poley and the other CD features singer Paul Laine. The album was recorded in 1993 while Ted Poley was still the lead singer of the band. Shortly after finishing it, Poley left the band and Paul Laine was hired as its new singer; he re-recorded the vocals in 1994. However, Poley sued the band and the label prohibiting its release. Epic decided to shelve it and the band went on with their career. The album was also the first to be recorded after Danger Danger parted ways with keyboardist Kasey Smith. This album is a must for anyone who enjoyed the band's first two albums as well as fans of Ted's new band, Melodica.
The Hooters' first album of new material since 1993, TIME STAND STILL sounds as if the intervening 14 years had never happened. Featuring a full reunion of all five original members, as opposed to singer-songwriters Rob Hyman and Eric Bazilian simply resurrecting the name, the Philadelphia quintet's familiar blend of traditional folk instruments and glossy rock remains. This includes Hyman's trademark melodica solos that gave the band their name. Along with 10 new songs, the album also includes a faithful cover of Don Henley's "The Boys of Summer".
