Prime NWOBHM. 12 page full colour booklet - 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork and band involvement. The tale of Chevy is a typical music biz could've, would've, should've saga of a band dogged by bad luck at every turn. Here at Rock Candy we make absolutely no apologies for thrusting obscurities into the spotlight with Chevy being a major case in point. Hailing from the midlands and in particular Leamington Spa, the band's roots go way back into the 1960s, when some of them were operating under the handle of Cupid's Inspiration. By 1980 they had reshaped both their music and their name, to the more hard hitting and streamlined Chevy, and were being hailed as part of the burgeoning NWOBHM, admittedly as one of the more melodic and thoughtful bands of that scene. This was underscored by their inclusion on the 'Metal For Muthas Volume II: Cut Loud' compilation album, a record that sorted the wheat from the chaff. 'The Taker', their debut (and only) album was recorded in London with seasoned American producer John Stronach (REO Speedwagon, Sammy Hagar), a somewhat surprising choice considering the band's hard hitting riffs. Released in 1980, the album won positive plaudits and it looked as if they were on the cusp of a sizeable victory until practical realities put paid to their hopes. Sadly the band split up shortly afterwards, leaving behind this fascinating and compelling document of an era where home grown hard rock ruled the day."
