Net Searching - The Front (1989)
The internet has made it so easy to track down a lot of material from bands you were interested years go. A quick use of a search engine with a band name, album title and a file sharing site or "blogspot", a short waiting time after a few clicks and hey, presto the albums on your hard drive for your personal listening pleasure. The Front, who released one album which was self-titled, couldn't have known about the possibilities of the internet in 1989 or maybe they did and wanted to remain as mysterious as Jim Morrison's death. Lead singer Micheal Franano definitely had a Morrison fixation but channelled the Cult's still living Ian Astbury much better. Franano had a more than competent band behind him however the band never made more than one album. There's a better Alice Cooper song on this album than any of the shite A.C. was putting out in the late 80's.
