Forte is really pleased to be working with the Re-Activated Grown Up Wrong! record label: (this label released several key records in the late 80s, before it evolved into Dog Meat records..) AMAZING UNRELEASED '60's-STYLE SAN FRANCISCO FOLK-ROCK ALBUM RECORDED IN 1976, FEATURING DANNY MIHM & TIM LYNCH OF THE ORIGINAL FLAMIN' GROOVIES. This stunning album is one of the archeological rock finds of the century! Recorded in '76, never released and not even rumored to exist, this is classic stuff from a band that combined '60s folk rock with muscular rock'n'roll in a sound that was simultaneously a throwback to a more innocent time (think Beau Brummels, early Jefferson Airplane and Moby Grape) and a raw and rockin' alternative to the pop-smart mid-'70s Fleetwood Mac. The 14-track album, has languished in a cupboard for over 30 years. Only two singles from it ever saw the light of day at the time; the second one, 'I Hear The Wind Blow', prompted the greatest of pop pickers, the late Greg Shaw, to declare in his Bomp! newsletter that "The Hot Knives are the best thing happening in San Francisco right now; their second self-made 45 is just out... They're not punk rock, it's folk-rock with female vocals ala early Jeff. Airplane, with warm harmonies and gorgeous Byrds guitar." Includes stomping covers of Moby Grape's 'Hey Grandma' and the Knickerbockers' 'Lies'. International excitement building for this amongst fans of the San Francisco Sound, the Flamin' Groovies and 60's/70s rock arcana.

?The Hot Knives comprised former Flamin?
Groovies Danny Mihm and Tim Lynch,
bassist Ed Wilson and folk-singing siblings
Mike and Deborah Houpt.....
Mike and Deborah?s strident harmonies
combine with that inherent early Groovies
roll to create an amped-up mid-70s
manifestation of the folk-rock originally
propagated by the likes of the Beau
Brummels and early Airplane.....
Mike Koupt?s originals, which form the bulk
of the album, more than hold up, tracks like
the majestic ?I Hear The Wind Blow? and
stomping ?Take Me Back? sending shivers
down the backbone.
A seriously exciting discovery.?
