Nottinghamshire's Limelight are primarily associated with the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement of the early '80s, but they were actually one of several acts whose origins lay quite a bit further back, and whose music just so happened to find its audience during this golden era for heavy music. In fact, brothers Mike (vocals, bass, guitar, keyboards) and Glenn Scrimshaw (guitar, bass) started writing songs together as far back as 1967, spending the next few years playing with numerous long forgotten groups (and releasing a pair of obscure singles in 1972) before hooking up with drummer Pat Coleman and adopting the Limelight moniker in 1974.

By then, the Scrimshaw family home had been outfitted with a serviceable studio, which allowed the versatile trio (all of them able to play each other's instruments with considerable skill) to start working on their demos while playing clubs all over the North

WOW!!!

Another "How did I miss these guys" band - especially as they supported Saxon in the 1980s, and Saxon were a band I saw a few times, I can tell you...

I recently found a copy of Limelight's extremely rare album in my local vinyl store, and I'm going to live with that for a few weeks before reviewing it, as it's plain, listening to this single, that there is/was a huge amount to these guys.

Progressive Metal in 1980?

Mellotrons, complex arrangements, the whole shooting match?

Thrash metal too?

"Metal Man" is a thrash prototype, and what about those Mellotrons, eh? Judas Who?

This'll have you questioning the whole nature of metal, revising your history books, and becoming an instant Limelight fan.

Mind-blowing, and I really don't use that term often.

Flip it over, and the flanged bass of "Hold Me, Touch Me" lets you know you're in for something very, very different, and Limelight duly present a totally unique take on NWoBHM, with shades of Indie bands (when Indie bands weren't simply boys with guitars) like Kissing The Pink and other less well-known acts.

This won't be to most metal fans tastes, but Limelight were about doing their own thing, their music was all self-financed, and it ROCKS!!!

Masterpiece. No Question - although "Hold Me, Touch Me" is so very different to what you might expect that I'd imagine it would divide tastes sharply.

"Metal Man", however, goes up with Vardis' "If I Were King" and the first two Jaguar singles as a Thrash Metal template.
