The days were long and filled with teen adventure. It was high school and life was simple. The only question, was when and where we could find Strait Jakket playing. It was the height of hair metal and this was the dawn of a new era of local music. A harder edged sound with haunting vocals and a stage presence that was larger than life.
Then as the years passed, Strait Jakket was no longer. A few years ago by complete chance I discovered Michelin Slave which was the core members of Strait Jacket moving on. Most prominently was of course the vocally gifted Julius Butty.
This is a sample of what became like an anthem for myself and many of my generation.
