The promise shown when Deaf Dealer’s early-’80s demonstration was embraced with the underground tape-trader network was under no circumstances fulfilled with the Québec-based rock band. Initially offering the vocals of Andy LaRoche, the initial band released only 1 tune, that was included on the multi-artist compilation Steel Massacre, Vol. 4 in 1983. Disbanding soon after the album’s discharge, the group reorganized with a fresh vocalist, Michael O’Flynn, 2 yrs afterwards. This lineup fared no better. Although many false starts avoided Deaf Dealer’s debut record, Keeper from the Fire, from released until 1986, the record was fulfilled by an apathetic viewers and quickly went of printing. The frustration continuing to develop, leading the music group to disintegrate within a season.
