Humpday finds us spinning 70's glam-band Angel and their 'White Hot' release. While they never really found commercial success (I have never heard them on the radio at all, though I am sure they were played on some FM stations, and never had a single crack the 'Top 40') they were a decent band and had somewhat of a 'cult' following (no, we didn't sit around waiting for flying saucers or any of that). *sips coughee* I always liked how their logo looks the same right-side up or upside down. Think I'll leave you with one of their 'harder' edged cuts...

They are an amazing rock band. I have all their albums. I found out about them because one of my friends in high school told me about them. When I first heard the album "On Earth As It Is In Heaven" I was sold. Yeah, they never got great success. But they were the band in the movie Foxes with Jody Foster back in the day.

You got me on this one. I never heard of Angel. They remind me of an 80s hair band.

I have to look this band up. The band logo would have made a good tattoo.
