Armed And Ready – Kerrang! October 1982 WAYNE PERKINS
VIRGIN STAR are a Malvern based rock band and have been knocking about locally for just over two years and have just released a cassette package, ”Four More For The Road’. They’ve never been a Heavy Metal band but a more ‘song’ orientated approach covering many styles of music held together with a hard rock base – and they’re classy as hell too!
The package is excellent although may be a bit off-putting at £2.90 a throw – for that you get a typeset lyric and biog. sheets, a photograph, folder and of course the tape which features four of their best known numbers, ‘Giving It Up’, ‘Rocketship’, ‘Toulouse Ya’ and ‘Tigers Eye’. The band are – Paul Taylor (vocals), Russell Simon (guitars), Mark Simon (drums) and newest recruit Guy Tittley (bass).
