Thundertrain TEENAGE SUICIDE (Gulcher 411) Set the way-back machine for August 1974--Boston, Mass. That rumble you hear coming up from the basement of Jack’s Drum Shop on Boylston Street isn’t a derailing subway train. You, my friend, are hearing the birthing roar of Thundertrain! Five kids from the suburbs of Boss-town who, for the next five years, glory stomped their way up and down New England and beyond. Thundertrain became the heroes of every biker bar, high school cafeteria, and hip downtown club in Red Sox Country, grinding out a high-energy blitzkrieg of rebel rock, strutting their stuff at that dangerous corner where glam-meets- metal-meets-rock-&-roll-meets-punk. From 1974 through 1979, you saw Thundertrain in 16 MAGAZINE, TIME, BOSTON GROUPIE NEWS, PLAYBOY, BOMP, ROCK SCENE and every DIY zine ever published.

You heard them on every college radio station at home and abroad. You saw them performing regularly at Max’s Kansas City, the Cleveland Agora, CBGBs, and of course at their home base--The Rat in Boston. Welding together the raunch of Keith Richards, the sweat of James Brown, the lunacy of the Dolls, and the crazy boogie of Johnny Winter--then bolting it all onto a gonzo teenbeat chassis--Thundertrain was the souped up locomotive that all the kids were lining up to ride. Thundertrain left behind a legacy of highly collectable vinyl.

Their first single, "I’m So Excited" b/w "Cindy Is A Sleeper," snuck out in 1975 on the United National label. The boys hit it big with their 1976 Jelly Records release "Hot For Teacher!" featuring Willie "Loco" Alexander on the frat house piano. Sounding like Chuck-Berry-meets-Slade, "Hot For Teacher!" rocketed to the top of the alternative charts in the US and Europe. The following year, Thundertrain hit again with the notorious TEENAGE SUICIDE album, and two sizzling tracks on the LIVE AT THE RAT compilation LP. Those LPs gained worldwide distribution and cemented the group’s name into Boston rock history.

Thundertrain was never to be forgotten. In the wake of the band’s break up, the Joe Perry Project scooped up lead singer Mach Bell, Van Halen nabbed guitarist Steven Silva’s catchy song title ("Hot For Teacher!"), and bootleggers continue to press Thundertrain discs to this day. Bloomington, Indiana’s Gulcher Records, purveyors of classic underground rock since 1976 (The Gizmos, Panics, Afrika Korps, Dancing Cigarettes, MX-80 Sound), has carefully remastered all of Thundertrain’s landmark recordings from the restored original tapes.

The TEENAGE SUICIDE compact disc includes a bonus radio interview, and a 24-page booklet packed with rare photos and the true backstage story of Thundertrain, as told to Ready Eddie Flowers by all five group members--Mach Bell, Steven Silva, brothers Cool Gene & Ric Provost, and Bobby Edwards. TEENAGE SUICIDE is an indispensible document for fans of Boston rock, the 1970s underground, and of course everyone who was actually there to witness the power and glory of the legendary Thundertrain.
