NICK GILDER - City Nights LP 78

For some reason it seems that a woman sings most of these songs but no woman is credited that I could find listed as being part of the band??  You remember 'Hot Child in the City' though, right?

Thank You. The songs are all actually sung by Nick Gilder. His previous band was Sweeny Todd from Canada. Nick left the band to pursue a solo career and was later replaced By a young teen named Bryan Adams.

I wasn't sure if you were joking -- Nick Gilder had a rather high voice. It sometimes struck me as creepy, especially when he was singing about young girls. "Hot Child In The City" takes me back to the hormonal confusion of adolescence. I listened to the b-side of that single ("Backstreet Noise") a lot. It was a great glam rock stomp.

@jonder LOVE "Backstreet Noise!" It's on his "You Know Who You Are" album, which also has "Roxy Roller." Love his "Frequency" album, too -- "Metro Jets" will always be one of my favorite songs. Nick is a great singer and songwriter -- I really wish he got more credit for his utter awesomeness.
