I think I'm above-average in Glam trivia. I think I know most of the signed band of the classic Glam time period...but yesterday, I was schooled. There I was, driving along and some band called Coney Hatch came on the Boneyard. Baffled, I listened.
Once home I looked up Coney Hatch and learned a few things: the band is Canadian and has a connection to April Wine. They apparently have four albums to their credit, including a best-of package. I must admit I'm surprised such an obscure band has a greatest hits compilation, but maybe Coney Hatch is really famous and I've been missing out.
Honestly, I wasn't impressed with "Monkey Bars." Since you should never judge a band by one song, I went to YouTube for more research.I must admit I like several other Coney Hatch songs more than "Monkey Bars." I'll also be the first to say there isn't anything really original here. In fact, my husband says the intro to "Fantasy" is a direct rip-off of "Smoke on the Water." I think this is a fair comparison. You decide.
Here's "Shake It."
Here's "First Time for Everything."
So, what do you think of Coney Hatch? Please tell me I'm not the only person unfamiliar with this band. By the way, you can hear more songs here.
