Record of the Day…..Biters – Hallucination Generation


Atlanta rock and rollers Biters wear their influences on their sleeve, but when you’re influenced by the likes of Thin Lizzy, Cheap Trick, Alice Cooper and Hanoi Rocks who cares? If this was 1979 Biters would be on tour with Van Halen playing giant arenas. If it was 1986 they’d be headlining those arenas.

But it’s 2015 and for some reason this kind of rock and roll can’t find it’s way back into the mainstream, but Biters are trying and they’re committed. I’ve never seen a band tour so hard. I’ve also seen these guys live and let me tell you, they are something to behold. I don’t think it matters whether there are 50 or 50,000 people in front of them, they explode on stage like their lives depend on it. I get the feeling Biters live and breathe rock and roll. Give them a follow on Facebook for proof. Or better yet, go see them live.

Domestic now, but spent early to late 80s playing drums in a hair metal band in Toronto. Since then I've lost the hair and have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
