|The Lime Spiders - The Cave Comes Alive! (1987)|
The Lime Spiders were - and still are - an Australian rock band. Formed in 1979 by lead singer and constant member Mick Blood, their declared influences are 60s garage rock and psychedelia. However, to these ears the overriding sound is more 80s hair metal/hard rock.
This was their debut album released on Virgin and represents the height of their success. The unremarkable songwriting and dreary vocals are somewhat redeemed by some sterling efforts from guitarist Gerard Corben, in particular the latin outro to final track Theory of Thira, below. Excellent album cover though!
