It’s been a little while, my friends. Too many distractions for this happily divorced, ADD, rockhead, proud father of 3 to navigate through. In the process I’ve reconnected with my old friend Kyle Haik, formerly of 80’s indie cult heroes Wild Kyle and the Kangaroos. He reminded me of our high school days, where I bought him a Helix album (I believe it was “Long Way to Heaven”) for his birthday one year.
Yes, we’re kickin’ it REAL old school this week with a vid from Helix…not from the aforementioned album, but the one that first brought them to national attention back in 1983. Man, those were the days…when music was pretty much all that mattered and the 12 months in between Iron Maiden albums seemed like an eternity.
Here, in all its 80’s glory, is this week’s WAV dedicated to my good friend Wild Kyle and to the memory of late Helix guitarist Paul Hackman. Rock on…and enjoy Abysmally…
