Subject: The Blasters

Written By: La Sine Pesroh on 09/02/05 at 8:37 pm

Does anyone remember 80's roots-rockers The Blasters, led by brothers Phil and Dave Alvin? They never broke through commercially but my brothers were really into them, and I can remember my bro's cranking them up when I was about 13 or 14.

(I like "American Music.")

Old topic this one is, but I had to vote for "other".  The Blasters appear in the 1984 film 'Streets of Fire', singing a great song called 'One Bad Stud'.  As that film is my all-time favourite, I had to pick that song.

In the UK, a popular Welsh singer named Shakin' Stevens turned 'Marie Marie' into a smash hit in 1980.  The Blasters version was great, but Shaky's version was spectacular ...
