Originally calling themselves The Shooze and eventually changing their name to the Generators (and, for a couple of weeks, The Baltimore Cocks) before ultimately settling on KIX, Baltimore's favorite hard rock band garnered quite a reputation for themselves as one of Maryland's most exciting live cover bands prior to signing to Atlantic Records in 1981. Led by frontman Steve Whiteman and creative mastermind/bassist Donnie Purnell, the band is rounded out by drummer Jimmy Chalfant and guitarists Ronnie Younkins (nicknamed 10/10) and Brian "Damage" Forsythe. Hitting the club circuit six nights a week for three straight years resulted in the band cultivating a huge local fan base and led to a contract with the Time Warner affiliate. Releasing their self-titled debut in 1981, KIX featured live favorites like "Atomic Bombs," the glorious "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah," and "The Kid." To support the release, the quintet set out to hit every club up read more...

KIX Midnite Dynamite

Album · 1985 · Glam Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Stephen
Out of nowhere, Kix decided to turn the wheel to a real rock and roll outfit after experimenting with some poppish new-wave feel at their prior releases. With Whiteman’s raspy vocal and some raw hard rock guitars tone, Kix brought out some AC/DC elements and combine them with Aerosmith, Hanoi Rocks, and RATT’s influences. However, despite a lot of rave reviews around, I have some mixed feelings toward “Midnite Dynamite”. I found them still in a developing process and half of the songs are just suffered from a real big hooks and careful writing, although most of them are quite enjoyable.

The title track, is an instant favorite, everything inside the track is just stunning and playing this song is gonna give you a euphoric party feel. “Red Hot” and “Lie Like A Rug” built on a rough hard rock structure but with a balance pop harmonies. “Walkin’ Away” is a mandatory ballad of the era and though this one isn’t their best, this song is somehow lovable. “Cold Shower” enjoyed some frequent airplay back in the days in their hometown, Maryland, and has some irregular interesting twist. “Sex” is another hit potential and heavily influenced by Aerosmith style.

Good disc by a great band, plenty of catchy melodies, uncomplicated but still essentially loaded. In my opinion, Kix reached their peak later on in their next two albums, but this one is also equally important to have, if you like classic hard rock or mid-80s glam metal.

"Hot Wire" is the last album that was released under Atlantic Records wing in 1991. At that time, Kix was in a financial trouble due to the poor sales and finally dropped by the label when the grunge arrived. Even though this album failed to match the sales of their previous album, "Hot Wire" was still acclaimed as a strong release by this East Coast glam act.

If you like a fast-paced AC/DC guitar-driven rock and roll style, you will love this album, especially the high-speed rebellious "Hot Wire", "Girl Money", and "Rock and Roll Overdose". The razor-edge guitars of the duo Forsythe-Younkins sounded crisp and clean, the solos are fabulous, and Whiteman's voice roaring wickedly fine. To compare the ballads, in my opinion, "Tear Down The Walls" is the best song they ever made over their entire career and way better than the famous "Don't Close Your Eyes", and this could be one good reason for you to rush out and buy this album. The whole album kicks some serious ass and highly recommended!
