Bay Area outfit Babylon A.D. also had to add the A.D. suffix to their moniker after complaints from another group in Chicago with the same name. Industry giant Clive Davis signed the band to his Arista label and hired producer Simon Hanhart (WAYSTED) to produce the selftitled debut which got released in 1989. Ex- SURGIN guy Jack Ponti co-wrote 5 tracks incl. some of the crackers like the the unbeatable opening duo of “Bang Go The Bells” and “Hammer Swings Down”. Track #5 “The Kid Goes Wild” (feat. comedian Sam Kinison) became well known as this song got used for the movie “Robocop 2”. Overall a cracker of the highest order for fans of FIREHOUSE, WINGER and cohorts. Digitally remastered incl. 7 bonus tracks.
