Before AC/DC started worldwide with Bon Scott, their singer was Dave Evans ("Can I Sit Next To You, Girl"). After his early exit or dismissal, depending on his personal interpretation, he was able to make the band Rabbit pay attention again. His subsequent solo activities were well worth listening to, but left little to be desired. Now the Australian teamed up with the Texas guitarist John Nitzinger. His roots are actually blues rock, but he became famous through Carl Palmer's 1PM and his work with Alice Cooper in the early eighties. If you cross the references AC/DC and Alice Cooper, you get relatively close to the sound of "Revenge". Not a bad combination, you'd think. At first listening many things seem interesting and exciting, but unfortunately no song really gets stuck. It always gets exciting when Nitzinger works on his guitar in blues rock style ("Where She Goes I Go"). Nothing works at all when the two try to sound too much like Alice Cooper ("Dead Cat Smile").
