The Godz : The Godz 1978


Hard rock





Hard rock (or heavy rock) is a loosely defined genre of rock music which has its earliest roots in mid-1960s garage, blues rock and psychedelic rock. It is typified by a heavy use of distorted electric guitars, bass guitar, drums, pianos, and keyboards. It developed into a major form of popular music in the 1970s, with bands like Led Zeppelin , Deep Purple , Aerosmith , AC/DC , Van Halen , Nazareth and Bad Company .






Not to be confused with the 1960s/early-'70s psychedelic band that was also called the Godz, this foursome was an obscure hard rock/arena rock outfit of the late '70s and '80s.




This band was formed in the Midwest in 1976, when bassist/ producer Eric Moore got together with lead guitarist Mark Chatfield , rhythm guitarist/ keyboardist Bob Hill , and drummer Glen Cataline.

All four of them contributed lead vocals.

The Godz signed with Casablanca in 1977 , which was also the year in which they had an ope
ning spot on Kiss' Love Gun Tour . (Cheap Trick was the other opening act on that tour.)

The Midwesterners recorded two little-known albums for Casablanca : 1978's "The Godz " and 1979's " Nothing Is Sacred " , both of which received very little attention.

Some more albums followed in the 1980s, including 1985's "I'll Get You Rockin'" on Heavy Metal America and 1987's " Mongolians " on Grudge.





The Godz are rock'n'roll junkies . Gotta keep a runnin' .

1978 The Godz

1985 I'll Get You Rockin' Heavy Metal America

1987 Mongolians


Essentially a biker band, the Godz put out a hard rock type of music that was fun-loving and rough around the edges.
They made no apologies and put on no airs. The result was a good fun-time, hard-rocking album in the vein of such groups as Grand Funk Railroad and Starz. The extended cut "Gotta Keep A Runnin'" is the highlight of the disc. It got a decent amount of airplay on AOR stations and includes a great extended spoken word section.


If you like your rock hard-edged and with no pretenses, this is a good, fun album to pick up.
