Story –Teenage Fighter


Story –Teenage Fighter/I Want You –RCA PB 4541 (1980 NL)

This is Belgo –Glamsters Lennart & Dagleth (Hush) landing in the 80s armed with two great tunes but at the mercy of some 80s studio technology trappings, especially the LinnDrum. However it’s easy to rise above any sonic imperfections as both tracks are sublime Powerpop/Glam/Bubblegum workouts with a heavy dose of FUN. You can’t usually go wrong when you have the word Teenage in a song title and Lennart and Dagleth hit the jackpot here. The arrangement on Teenage Fighter presents quite a few twists and turns without hindering its hooky simplicity. The B side is heavier and in some ways sillier, a bit like Cheap Trick covering The Troggs with syndrums straight off the soundtrack of Cannibal Holocaust...

Enjoy Teenage Fighter

Oh yeah, this is pop metal all the way. Reminds me of a lot of AOR/pop crossover stuff like American Noise, Breathless, Trigger. Terrible bands, but almost all of them with at least one killer track.
