Rock's "nearly men" Return

I had never heard of Vain until last year, when their 1989 debut "No Respect" was re-released. After hearing the said album, I had to know more and found "On The Line" readily available on iTunes, and what an album it is. "Running On Empty" is first to lay down the gauntlet that these boys have arrived to rock n' roll. It's full of cheeky rock swagger and unrelenting in it's assault. Other songs like the catchy, hook laden title track and "Slave" offer more of the same and don't fail to hit the mark. However one of the album's highlights is the ghostly brooding "Turn to Sand", with it's echoing ambient guitars and Davy Vain's haunting vocal, which literally sends a shiver down the spine. Like myself, many of you wouldn't have heard of Vain. However, if you do stumble across this album whilst searching for something a bit different, then this is an album that should nt be overlooked. This is a band who have perfected their craft for a period of years and like a fine wine, they are here to stimulate your musical taste buds and have you crying out for more. Enjoy.

Thank God they're back!!!

Let me keep this short & sweet - if Nirvana & grunge hadn't come along and turned the rock world on it's head, Vain would have been HUGE!!!! My favourite rock band of all time. Accept no substitutions


Good to hear VAIN again,outstanding album, Davy sounds just a electric as he did on the No Respect album,which I-Tunes ,if your reading this PLEASE PLEASE get hold of a copy.


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '00s

This band was formed in San Francisco, USA, in 1985 by songwriter Davy Vain, with James Scott (lead guitar), Danny West (rhythm guitar), Ashley Mitchell (bass), and Tom Rickard (drums). Early shows with Poison and Guns N’Roses, before either was a major act, and a series of impressive demos aroused considerable interest before a contract with Island Records was signed. No Respect was crammed with atmospheric driving metal with its own particular ambience owing to the live-in-the-studio recording...
