“You Are Like Straws Against The Wind…”


A panned, yet overlooked success – 91%

Serving as the band’s visionary, Jon Mikl Thor (pictured with the four Dobermans on the cover) embraced wholeheartedly campy theatrics with feats of strength and solid, arena ready dynamics. But Jon was far from a championship bodybuilder-turned-musician. In fact, he had honed his chops from playing bass and singing in a number of garage bands, and had always exhibited a passion for meaty, pulsating hard rock music. Jon was under the notion that in order to get anywhere, he must seek bigger pastures elsewhere–namely, the USA. After initial success on the Merv Griffin show in 1976, Thor was signed to major label RCA records. Backed by dual-guitarists John Shand and David Munkhoff, bassist Terry McKeown and drummer Bill Wade, the band released “Keep the Dogs Away” the following year. Despite the album reaching gold status, critics were disenchanted with how Jon’s muscle-bound stage persona detracted from any real musical credibility. However, in order to do this album justice, it must be given another, more modest listen.

Stylistically, and on the contrary to previous criticisms, the songs aren’t even remotely bad. Actually, they are clearly full of memorable (and grandiose, to some degree) song structures and likable melodies. Shand and Munkhoff’s glitter-filled heavy metal riffs suffice to compensate for Jon’s not utilizing his full vocal potential. A comparison may ultimately be drawn between he and original Iron Maiden frontman, Paul Di’Anno. Specifically, it is akin to Jon’s theatrical vocal style (a la “Rocky Horror Picture Show”), seemingly out of place with the rest of the band as Di’Anno’s “punk” style with Iron Maiden. Still, it is not a hugely deterring factor. Besides the familiar hooks of title track, another feat of note is the subtle, yet impressive lead guitar on “Military Matters”, which turns to a twin lead toward the middle of the song and consistently drives to the end. The wall-of-sound component is evident after the first chorus of “Sleeping Giant”, but is better utilized on “Superhero”–a mass of reverb-drenched, melodic guitars, seldom heard in ’70s radio rock. The rest of the songs, while featuring these components more or less, are straight ahead anthem rockers. That is except for the last track, “Thunder”, which acted as a catalyst for the pure heavy metal antics of Thor mach II to come.
Wherever you are, do yourself a favor and have a listen to this larger-than-life and cruelly underrated classic!


We are very happy to bring you iconic rock figure Thor debut album from 1978, Keep The Dogs Away. It is his first album Keep The Dogs Away that has been his diamond, his little piece of HEAVY METAL perfection that has and will continue to stand the test of time. Perhaps never fully appreciated upon first release due to the larger than life novelty aspect of muscleman Thor himself, and the fact that the music was given a back seat by the media to the comic book like feats of strength Thor employed to get the initial attention, or perhaps his Chippendale-esque takeover of the Merv Griffin show in 1976…for whatever reason the music was never taken as seriously as it merits. We will point out that many of the efforts by similar over the top rock shows such as Alice Cooper and Kiss were also similarly critically derided, and history has proven their early efforts were of far more worth than initially considered. One of the great Canadian rock albums ever made.
