CHEETAH is out, and on the loose with a PRIMAL sounding album! Primal is
armed with incredible lead vocals delivered
by vocalist Les Brown with Carl Fragnito serving up guitar solos that would have
him earned him praise of such magazines as Guitar World back in the MHR heyday.
Cheetah was well known on the NYC club scene in the late 80s to early 90s with a
big buzz with the magazines and labels. As in a lot of cases of unsung heroes,
times changed and that brass ring just seemed to stay just out of reach. The
band disbanded and called it a day in the early 90s. NOW, with a renewed
interest and eagerness to get back out there, this cat is back in town and ready
to show you, what alot of people never got a chance to hear. This album
represents what was best about this band, with their melodic yet bluesy-based
rock and impressive vocals and guitar solos. Which will have you recalling such
bands as CINDERELLA, BON JOVI and others of the same genre. This is a must have
album for anyone that loves music with a hard-edged stadium rock
sound and is only a appetizer of what to expect from album !!!
A hard rocker that gets in your face ala AC/DC style with its raunchy vocals and
NOW this is the song that will leave a smile on your face and put a positive
spin on even the worst day! This song is pure melodic drenched fun with an
optimistic look on tough times.
IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE:
Now this is the song that gets the woman dancing. The title says it all. If
you’re a fan of Cinderella ala Gypsy Road, then this is the song for you. Once
again,. FUN FUN FUN!
FOREVER: Now being a band that is rooted firmly in the 80s sound. You need “the ballad”.
Well, this is it!! A song that says it all about LOVE. Simply put, when you find
the “ONE” it is…Forever.
THUNDER: Raunchy and in your face!! Has that big sing along chorus with memorable
WOMAN: This is the “groove” song. It gets down and dirty and kicks in with a BIG
chorus. Very good sing along type of song.
YOUR LOVE: Well one ballad worked…why not two!? This is Carl’s fave to play
of the two. Think that you have just made a huge mistake, and you realize you
cant live without that person. This song has a very Warrant feel to it.
GIMMIE GIMMIE: A lil attempt at those good ol boys of Bean town. This song has an Aerosmith
meets ACDC thing going on. Its got that Steven Tyler swagger, but with a ACDC
balls out Vocal gruff in the vocals. Once again…BIG chorus with big guitars!
BRING ON THE MARSHALLS!
THE HILL: Once again we tread on the Cinderella ground with a very bluesy acoustic
flavored drinking moonshine song that tells a lil story about Johnny. Fun and
changes the pace a lil.
YOUR LOVE: Another in your face song with big guitars and vocals, that makes my throat hurt
when I hear that high note!
TONIGHT: This was some new ground for the band bringing in the aid of a Piano for this
song. It gave us a new dimension. This song is a pure joy. It has a nice build
to a BIG chorus. This is cut from the same cloth as tomorrow. This song will
leave a smile on your face and think, things aren’t that bad.
