Blue Ash


Blue Ash’s destiny mirrored that of fellow power poppers like Big Celebrity — insufficient sales to back again up those critical hosannas. Youngstown, Ohio occupants Expenses Bartolin (vocals, acoustic guitar), David Evans (drums, vocals), Jim Kendzor (vocals), and Frank Secich (bass, vocals) created in 1969, and quickly won evaluations to the most common suspects from the label: the Beatles as well as the Who. Solid regional interest guaranteed a offer in 1973 with Mercury Information, home of the brand new York Dolls. Both rings even had exactly the same champ in A&R guy Paul Nelson, who plucked Blue Ash’s demonstration from an unsolicited tape pile. FORGET ABOUT No Less made an appearance that 12 months, and is most beneficial remembered because of its raucously melodic leadoff monitor, “Abracadabra (PERHAPS YOU HAVE Seen Her?).” Critics dropped around themselves, but sparse product sales dashed expectations of carrying on with Mercury. Evans was over when Front Web page News finally made an appearance on Playboy’s ill-fated label in 1977. The group’s skill burnt as brightly as ever — though snowed under horns and strings — but didn’t improve its fortunes. There the storyplot finished, although Blue Ash received a short burst of notoriety when Anglo-poppers the Information covered “Abracadabra” for any 12″ solitary in 1979. (The initial version can be on Rhino’s Poptopia! 70s Power Pop Classics compilation.) Secich loved the best profile after Blue Ash’s separation. When fellow previous Ohioan Stiv Bators yearned to go beyond the surprise punk of his previous band, the Deceased Males, he teamed up with Secich on the May 1979 solitary, “The THIS PAST YEAR”/”It’s Cold Outdoors.” They experienced sufficiently motivated to after that collaborate on Bators’ 1980 single album Disconnected, which includes since been reissued on Bomp Information. (Ironically, Bators and Secich shelved a demonstration from the Glories’ “I Stand Accused” after Elvis Costello achieved it for his Obtain Happy! record.) Secich also caused ex-Dead Boys tempo guitarist Jimmy No in Membership Wow, which maintained a unitary (“Prettiest Female”/”The Evenings Are SUCH A LONG TIME”) during its two-year work from 1982 to 1984.
