There’s not much music on this one, it’s more a photo review this time. Enjoy!
QUIET RIOT – “Slick Black Cadillac Live” 1983 Kerrang Flexidisc
The reason I have this (scored from Discogs!), aside from it just looking cool, is that it’s hilarious! The version of “Slick Black Cadillac” is the same great version that was later released on the remastered edition of Metal Health. However…it has recorded messages from the band members as well! These messages are directed to the UK readers of Kerrang! (who gave away this flexi-disc), and are dubbed directly over the song.
After Kevin DuBrow mentions the upcoming December gigs they’ll be playing, each member gets to say a word. Rudy in particular strikes my funny bone. “Hi, this is Rudy Sarzo, and I play the bass!” He’s just so…excited! As for Kevin? “When I see you I wanna hear you scream ’til your throats bleed!”
Flexi-discs are obviously fragile and are only good to play a handful of times. They have a bit more background noise than normal 45’s, but have the bonus of looking cooler than the average 45! This one is single sided, and came taped inside an issue of Kerrang! Not all flexi’s are clear like this one, so I consider this a fun conversation piece.
