Hard Rock AC/DC type w. members of the Young family Check sample!
Hard Rock AC/DC type of style and features members of the great Young family, of course related to Angus and Malcolm Young of AC/DC. Good music that is crossing over to N.W.O.B.H.M, and that is the reason why this L.P appears in most N.W.O.B.H.M wants lists
vinyl looks unused / near mint, but that’s a biassed opinion. Check out the pictures and make up your own mind.

With a sound owing more than just a little nod to Australian rock & roll legends AC/DC and Rose Tattoo, most likely fueled by rhythm guitarist Stevie Youngs family ties to AC/DCs Angus and Malcolm Young (Young even replaced the latter on the second leg of the Aussie greats 1988 US tour), the Starfighters were – and still are – not only a sure pleaser for NWOBHM aficionados but for each and everyone who likes his rock dirty and mean.
5.0 out of 5 stars AC/DC Links
Great band who should have gone to the next level, they supported AC/DC on the UK Back in Black tour in 1980. Stevie Young, a cousin of Malcolm and Angus, plays rhythm guitar on this album and it is little surprise that there lies within a strong AC/DC influence. Listen to Alley Cat Blues as one fine example.
If you like AC/DC you will love this – brings great memories flooding back!
5.0 out of 5 stars An undiscovered gem !
An undiscovered gem.I first bought this on vinyl in 1981 or thereabouts and was blown away,more like Rose Tattoo than AC/DC i think,but the “Young” link/sound is undeniable,being in the family you wouldn’t really expect anything else. All tracks are really excellent, contains no “filler” as such. Stand out tracks i would say are “Alley Cat Blues” & “Don`t Touch me”, will both have you reaching for the tennis racquet or that air guitar you’ve stashed away.A real good time fun vinyl, play it loud
5.0 out of 5 stars They Don’t Make Them Like This anymore
When your copies of Highway to Hell and Back In Black are worn out – or don’t do it for you anymore – slip this little baby and hear rock rolling like it should.
Fantastic vocal range – punchy, crisp, clean riffs that Angus himself would be proud of and profound lyrics that wouldn’t be allowed today in our health & safety world.
Don’t wait for the next Airbourne release – buy this instead. The price is worth ‘Alley Cat Blues’ alone.
