Regina's Kick Axe saw the inroads that their first LP made on the lower reaches of Billboard's charts last winter, overshadowed by Helix's surprising scurry into the top 50 during the same period, but the band of hardrockers isn't complaining.

The self-titled album sold 5,000 copies in Japan and the single, Dreaming About You, went to the number two position on Radio Warsaw.

Which means that Kick Axe has sailed past the first checkpoint in Canada's peculiar road to stardom - get recognized outside of the country. The band is now recording their second Lp in Los Angeles.
