This Iron Maiden album was one of the earliest metal/hard rock Long Play Records I bought.
This was the music I liked as a teenager in the eightees. Rebellious in mind, in the evening I listened the the Dutch hard rock radio program: VARA's Vuurwerk (Fireworks), presented by the Dutch pop-musician and DJ Henk Westbroek. I liked the loud, fast and speed bands like Motörhead, Slayer, Anthrax, AC/DC, and a few numbers of Iron Maiden. Metal lovers and hard rockers were a minority back then.
For me rock had to have a rough sound, fast drums and yelling guitars and good bass rhythms. I didn't like metal bands with guys who screamed like girls or had to slick solo's.
The first real hardrocker
(Funny theatrical American rock!: I had a lot of their albums, also for esthetic reasons.)
I also liked the old hard rock bands of the the sixtees Jimmy Hendrix and MC5 and the seventees , Television, Kiss, Black Sabbath, Saxon and some David Bowie songs.
I also liked the collaboration between hard rock bands and Hip hop:
From hard rock and metal there was the bridge to Punk Rock, some blues and New Wave.
The only polish hard rock band I knew was Turbo, I owned one album of them and I stil have that album.
I must have played this song maybe 100 times on my record player. My parents didn't understood my interest and fanatism with that loud and fast music. When my mother washed my Motörhead and Slayer t-shirts, she ironical said: "Here you have your Nazi shirts back son.", because of all the Death heads and SS Runes on in the symbolism.
T-shirts like this one
And this one ( I was wearing this T-shirt when we went out with a group of Dutch and German/Polish art students in a New Wave sort of verry nice nightclub/discotheque in Krakow in April 2004)
You mean the one next to Bob D.? Sigh. My love,my wife wouldn't let me :)I mean I guess shoud would not. In case you ask about the tricolour,heterochromic monster - it is a free, randomly looming creature.
