    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Great Backing Bands : Good one! Their horn section bought an arrangement of mine (I have a way with brass).  Never recorded it though

    There was a local group way back when called the "Heavy Metal Horns".  I caught a couple shows and thought they were fantastic, like a 9-piece jam band or Chicago (circa their first two LPs), but then I never head from them again.

    Ring a bell, greg...?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Great Backing Bands : Ouch! I know them.  Wrote a couple scores for a certain band from Medford/Malden that WERE recorded, but I got f'd over.  Won in court.  Didn't get a dime. Good guys all, and they had nothing to do with my getting scr3wed with my pants on. Take a guess.

    The band name didn't include the words "mighty mighty", did it...??

    Re: Great Backing Bands

    Based in Boston, the Heavy Metal Horns mix a four-piece horn section with the typical rock band instruments to create a stew of R&B, funk and rock. The group released two demo cassettes before the Square label released their self-titled debut album. The Heavy Metal Horns moved to Danger www.artistdirect.com/#">Records for their second album Horns in the House; Dakini followed in 1997 and 4:20 in the Land of Plenty was issued in 1999. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide
