WHEN LIVERPOOL BASED 70s hard rock legends Nutz were forced, by their record company, to change their name to Rage at the turn of the decade, many long- time fans were apprehensive that they would also alter their musical approach. Fortunately that was not the case, with the band choosing, if anything, to adopt a much more hard-hitting style. A sound that would rather unknowingly align them to a new breed of guitar fuelled bands operating under a banner known as the NWOBHM.
For Rage, this scene provided them with the perfect opportunity to not only update their sound but to also wipe the slate clean. Signed to the fast rising independent label Carrere, they issued two well received albums before settling in to record their third record, the slightly more refined ‘Run For The Night’, a record that would be the band’s bid to hitch their wagon to the more melodic, arguably AOR, side of rock genre. Self-produced, the band enlisted the help of fellow Liverpudlian songwriter Steve Morris, of revered AOR rockers Export, to help with material.
For the first time they also utilised well-crafted keyboard support lending a bold sheen to their third and final album with tracks such as ‘Fantasy’, ‘Can’t Say No’, ‘No Prisoners’ and the hard rockin’ ‘Lady Killer’ taking pride of place. A fitting finale to this well respected and highly cherished band.
