ONE OF THE GEMS OF SLEAZE / REMASTERED- EXTENSIVE BOOKLET - Forget Ratt, Poison, Motley Crue and those other "name" bands. This is, by far, one of the finest albums of the hair metal/glam genre which got lost in the crowd. Fortunately it stood the test of time while the other bands just seem to be stuck in formulaic excess. Lord Tracy originally consisted of former Black Oak Arkansas bassist Kinley "Barney" Wolfe, drummer Chris Craig and guitarist Jimmy Rusidoff Terry Glaze, formerly of Pantera, joined in 1986 as lead vocalist. Their first album, Deaf Godz of Babylon, was released in the fall of 1989. The album's lead single, "Out with the Boys", reached No. 40 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart. A ballad, "Foolish Love", was the album's follow-up single. Although the Deaf Godz of Babylon album failed to sell many copies, it remains a notable release for it's use of humor and it's diverse influences, ranging from Beastie Boys to Motörhead Following the release of Deaf Godz, the band toured extensively from 1989-1991 and broke apart while on the road in the summer of 1991. The attitude is there. The hooks are solid. The humor is infectious as it even takes some shots at the genre. There's not a dud track to be found here as it veers from hard rock to ballad to speed metal satire. The mix of the album is perfect. The liner notes for the album are an interesting read with mention of the "mindless guitar" and "Viking" parts of "Piranha" as well as huge praise for Mark Dodson's production and guitar work. The lyrics are scrawled in there as well.
