Slave Raider

You are probably already familiar with Slave Raider. The band formed in the mid 1980s in Minneapolis. Slave Raider is sort of a mix between RATT and W.A.S.P. - great, melodic hooks with a crazy image. Basically, true Glam.


Slave Raider released three albums on RCA:

Take The World By Storm

Bigger, Badder and Bolder


There's a Slave Raider Myspace page, but I don't think the band will be getting back together anytime soon. Too bad, because I think Slave Raider would probably still sound good. As you can imagine, copies of Slave Raider albums are now highly collectible. The original version of Take the World By Storm is long out of print - and sells on eBay for at least 80 bucks. If only I had some cash...I digress. Here's "Make Some Noise.

Funny story. I found the "Take the world by storm" cd at a used store for a dollar. I sold it on ebay for 47 bucks! And guess who bought it...... None other than their lead singer!!! He sent me an autographed 8x10.

If anyone can send me Slave Raider's DOA as a .MP3 or .WMA file to taylor_jones@kqrsrocks.com I would be VERY appreciative.

I was a casual fan of the band, but just love that song. (I can't find just that song on any download sites, so if you have a method of sending it to me, I would really be grateful)


Thanks,

TJ
