ACE LANE picture
Ace Lane were formed in 1982, in Kingston-Upon-Hull, when Stef Prokopczuk and Mick Clarke left the NWOBHM band Gaskin. They almost did a deal with Genesis's publishing company but couldn't get a band together quickly enough to showcase the demos they played. They went back to Mick's home town -Barnsley in South Yorkshire- and recruited Chris Morris, Paul Brook and Roy Whyke and formed the band. Ace Lane was a Barnsley band, although often are quoted as originating from Hull. They, in fact, only recorded there. They rehearsed through the summer of '82, played some demos to Rondelet Records and were rewarded with the budget for their only album. They played several warm up gigs which all sold out.

Both Rondelet Records and Expulsion Records liquidated the respective companies and took off with all the sales and publishing money. Rights were sold to Roadrunner Records and Mausoleum USA Records and companies

See you in hell...

Genre: NWoBHM

Ace Lane's "See You in Heaven" is one of the run-of-the-mill releases of the NWoBHM movement - that is, it is solid hard rock, but nothing groundshaking.

Most of the tracks on this album are hard rock in the vein of AC/CD-meets-Thin Lizzy, and there are plenty of nice uplifting moments, to be sure, and tracks like "Cold Nights", "Don't Shine Your Light on Me", and "Always" are okay, while the closer "Jay" is brilliant. The title track is a ballad, and it's one of the better ballads I've heard - it's simple and not too bombastic or cheesy, and still they manage to squeeze in a 13/8 chorus in there, and, along with "Jay" it is my favorite track on this album. The remaining tracks are charming, I guess, but far from masterpieces, and I think that some, like "Girl Fever" are outright silly (althought the aforementioned song has a couple of good moments).

Lyrically, most of the songs are about partying and pulling birds. As was, and still is I guess, typical of a lot rock music, the lyrics are highly sexist, and I think I've grown too old to be impressed by that stuff.

As I said, this is a good album with some uplifting hardrock songs on it, but at the same time it is nothing special. I thik that fans of hard rock and glam metal as well as NWoBHM aficionados will appreciate this album for what it is - a bunch of songs about having fun... so, let the fun start.
