Armed And Ready – Kerrang! 1982
EXCITER: stand by for Exciter! As the name implies, this band’s greatest idols’ are Judas Priest. A thoroughly normal obsession for any young group, you might think. But what isn’t so normal about this lot is that (1) they’re Dutch and (2) they contain a member who’s a mere 14 years old!
Out of the four members, three are brothers. Very much a family affair. Gert Admiraal plays bass and sings lead vocals, Walter Admiraal is the drummer and Marcel Admiraal is the aforementioned youngster on the lead axe. Odd man out is Mark Karsten, also a guitarist.
