German based band Laos was yet another band that just never quite got there. They had all the talent they could ask for, a beautiful lead vocalist with a fantastic voice and some great songs. But sadly it wasn’t meant to be.
Disbanding not long after the release of this sole album, the band was never heard from again. Gundrun Laos released two singles a few years later, included on the rereleased version of this album. She later went on to release two albums with a band called BAR-FLY. It is rumored there is an album floating around from Laos that has never seen the light of day, but we have never seen anything from it.
There is not much information to be found on the band, this review is mainly just to try and put some knowledge of this album out there for folks who may not be familiar with it.
There is really not a bad track here, though some are not as strong as others. Check this one out, highly recommended for fans of female fronted rock bands from the 80’s like Saraya, Femme Fatale, Vixen and Lee Aaron.
Available in the rereleased version from a fantastic site, NEHRecords.com.
