Au sujet de ce nouvel extrait, le chanteur Biff Byford dit : “Cette chanson raconte l’histoire de la toute première tournée que Saxon a effectuée en 1979 en compagnie de Motörhead. J’ai envie que les gens sentent ce qui se passait en Grande-Bretagne à cette époque, et comment des groupes tels que Saxon et Motörhead étaient au commencement de cette musique qui allait révolutionner les années 80!”.

Biography (extraite de leur site officiel – ICI):

“Somewhere around South Yorkshire, UK there was a band that started life as SOB during 1976 with founder members Graham Oliver and Steve Dawson. This band joined forces with another local band, Coast, featuring Biff Byford on vocals and Paul Quinn on guitar. The two bands then finalised with a line-up comprising of the then 26 year old Graham ‘Oly’ Oliver, Steve ‘Dobby’ Dawson (27), Paul ‘Blute’ Quinn (26), Pete ‘Frank’ Gill (27) and Peter ‘Biff’ Byford (27). The name of the band was Son Of A Bitch. That name was dropped a few years later and the band re-christened themselves SAXON. They were at this time playing the usual rock clubs and concert gigs supporting The Ian Gillan Band and Heavy Metal Kids, amongst others, playing all their own material. Demo tapes were recorded at Tapestry Studios, with producer John Verity (Ex. Argent singer/guitarist). They hawked these round the usual record companies only to be ignored as the New-wave was at its height at this time. After a few months the band finally gained a favourable reaction from EMI man Peter Hinton. He had come up to Barnsley to see the band play at the town’s Civic Hall. He was very impressed and recommended SAXON to Claude Carrere as candidates for his new label on the British scene, Carrere Records. Claude decided to offer them a contract, after hearing the band’s demo tapes…”
