[article]: Name Cancon acts give boost Kick Axe session
[by]:

Several name Canadian acts gave support to the latest Kick Axe single, With A Little Help From My Friends, a cover of the Beatles' classic. The single is being released as 7" as well as a radio-only 12". A video of the session, taped ala documentary will be released as well.

Guesting on the session were Rik Emmett, Zappacosta, Lee Aaron, FM, Cindy Valentine, as well as members of Coney Hatch: Sheron Alton and Brian Allen.

The single will be included on the band's new LP, Welcome To The Club, scheduled for a Nov. 29 release. Recorded at Toronto's Metalworks, the album was produced by Spencer Proffer and will be released on the Epic/Pasha label. Jacket work for the album was by Hugh Syme and Dimo Safari.

This is the second album for the group in just over a year. Their debut attained gold status in Canada. However, unlike their firt set, this LP is reportedly "not heavy", but more in keeping with straight ahead rock. A U.S. release is expected for the new year. A tour is also in the works for mid-December.
