Rogue Male “First Visit”
cover art: Peter Gudynas
A relic of the days when metal was a lot like punk, only with longer hair, more leather, and wider-legged guitar stances.
Peter Gudynas is actually a very talented Sci-Fi book cover artist. Some of his work is beautiful. All I can think of is maybe the band ASKED for the “retarded Terminator” look.
Still rockin it, sans the band & mullet.
1980, Warner Bros.
“The Last Rainbow”
1981, no label
Larry is one of those “bedroom recording artists”… A guy who seemingly wrote, performed, and recorded his album by himself in his room. As you might imagine, interesting things – both good and bad – often result from having no one to tell you if your ideas are terrible or genius. A BizarreRecord is sure to be the result!
FROM THE LINER NOTES:
“This album was written and recorded in my bedroom in Houston, Texas during the months of September through December of 1980 using Tascam 8-track equipment.
Drum tracks supplied by Drum Drops, Woodland Hills, CA.
All other instruments including electric and acoustic guitars, Alembic bass, Arp Omni, Arp Avatar guitar synthesizer, all vocals, compositions, arrangements, concept, design, and production……. Larry Voltz.”
I can’t find anything current about this guy. I wonder if he’s still around? Probably hanging around at Numbers (Houston people will understand) bitching about how much better the music was 30 years ago.
