Artist discography


In 2016, Harem Scarem frontman Harry Hess released the 2nd First Signal album "One step over the line" that sounded like a Harem Scarem record so I´m a bit confused why he´s doing those side-projects. It´s not like he´s singing those songs live with his "real" band Harem Scarem.
Harem Scarem´s attempts of doing something different with the powerpop-ish Rubber or the dark and grungy Voice of Reason, weren´t particularly embraced by the fans so that´s why these Canadiens keep making albums in the same vein as the first two albums that both are their most popular albums.
The reverse side of it, is that you can´t reinvent the wheel twice so every single new release will always be compared to Mood Swings or the awesome debut which is tough enough.
Like I said, not much has happened in 25 years, their 14th album "United" is an exact copy of the previous album "Thirteen" but up a notch with better songs. Now don´t get me wrong, it might seem like I´m not too impressed but I do think "United" is a great album. That is if you want Harem Scarem to be just like AC/DC, and never change.
"United" is a safe buy for their die-hard fans, Harry Hess and guitarist Pete Lesperance worked really hard in writing strong hook-laden songs such as "Here today, gone tomorrow", "One of life´s mysteries" and "Bite the bullet".

Did you know that?

Rikki Rocket of Poison once shot and killed a 9-point Buck from his drum riser during an outdoor show in Montana. The band was fined $1,500.
