70's rock band with emphasis on organ

Recommended Posts

I don't remember ever seeing Bloodrock talked about here. Another 70's rock act with a strong organ presence.

 

I used to play Kool Aid kids in a band. That was a lot of fun.

and of course this famous song that was banned from radio. I could never understand why that was...

Cool, I never heard of them! DOA sounds like what might have happened if Van De Graff Generator had gone for a single. I listened to some other clips on Amazon... The first two albums didn't grab me, but some of the stuff on the third caught more of my attention, and then especially, the fourth (USA).

Maybe this is the best place for a shameless plug! Our now not-so-new new video at https://youtu.be/3ZRC3b4p4EI is a 40 minute adaptation of T. S. Eliot's "Prufrock" - check it out! And hopefully I'll have something new here this year. ;-)

Don't know if you really don't know or not but it was because there were fears that the siren sounds would unsafely distract listeners while driving....

Lowerhodes - I was a kid back when DOA was banned. I assumed it was the gore that got it banned. Interesting to hear it was the sirens. I wonder if they ever thought of remixing and taking that out?

 

I'd like to see a Simpson parody using that song ( :

 

Hammonddave - when I watch that great clip I thought I was watching these guys at a casino. Maybe they're playing that circuit today?

DOA was never banned in my area either. We played lots of Bloodrock, loved Lee Pickens Guitar work too.

I remember Breach Of Lease, Jessica and DOA were favotires at the talent show in High School. Had the Farfisa and a Leslie, plus Doubled on Guitar using the Vox Distortion Booster that plugged into the Guitar jack. Uriah Heep, Black Sabbath, Hendrix, if you didn't play those, you were singing on an ACoustic doing Denver, Biaz and that whiny bastard Leo Sayer....

 

We even had a Jeopardy spif with a category of whiny songs from the 70's.

WHiny Songs from the 70's for 200 please...........Who was Leo Sayer....yes , thats correct..................arrgghhh.

I'm pretty sure that would have gotten you beaten up at my high school. The big albums at the time there were Aqualung, The Yes Album, and Low Spark. Although we loved Madman Across the Water too.

Don't remember the ban. I was in a small town in Minnesota and loved the song. Went on to work in medicine and still have the LP Bloodrock 2.
