Underrated: Romeo's Daughter

Let's dig deep and remember a classic band from the 80s: the female-fronted Romeo's Daughter.

The British band formed in the mid-1980s, released a couple albums and is now back together. The cool thing about Romeo's Daughter is that the band's self-titled debut included tracks produced by Mutt Lange. As we all know, basically anything touched by Mutt in the 80s turned into music gold (and platinum).

Romeo's Daughter got a big break when “Heaven in the Back Seat” was included on the Nightmare on Elm Street V soundtrack. (Click the link and read more about that soundtrack and singles).

In case you aren't familiar, the band members are Leigh Matty vox, Craig Joiner (guitar), Tony Mitman (keyboards), Ed Poole (bass) and Andy Wells (drums).

According to the band's Facebook page, the members of Romeo's Daughter are hard at work on a new album now for release soon. I don't expect we'd see the band live in America, but I bet our European friends will and can therefore report back!

Great live band as well, saw them several times back in the day - often with FM (probably because Leigh is married to Merv).
Didn't go to Firefest to see the reunion gig, but watched the live internet broadcast of their next gig & they still sound good - Leigh still pretty hot as well!!

I've never seen nor heard that one before....I was expecting good things, but that was a mess.

That was one of those bands that got lumped into glam just because they had big hair. that was out and out pop.

I actually own this CD which I bought for like 3 bux on Amazon. The fact that it was so cheap should have warned me how cr*p this band really is. Though there are sometimes exceptions to that dictum, Romeo's Daughter sure as h*ll isn't one of them.

In line with Allyson's thinking on her latest post subsequent to this one, "Save or Spend: Music Edition", this CD is proof bar none that I have too many CDs or, at the very least, in the case of theez poseurs, one too many!

Bottom line...

Rip off T. Rex + Too many keys + A chick who can't sing her way out of a fuchsia pleather handbag = B-O-R-I-N-G ! ! !
