Label: Independent
Genre: Hard Rock
Artist discography


Want some classic hard rock in the 80´s style? Then Hollywood based 1rko´s debut 6 track EP "FirstRoundKnockout" is the answer for your prayers.
It´s a varied EP of rockers, ballads and more melodic stuff - I think they have done a good cover of The Sweet´s "Fox on the run" and the piano ballad "Hand in hand" could´ve been a hit back in the 80´s.
"Right now" is a great rocker made for the stage and the more melodic "So alive" bring thoughts to Paul Stanley´s song "Goodbye" from his 1978 solo album.
The best track on the ep is "One more time" that I also hope will be included on the band´s forthcoming 14 track album out in 2009.
1rko is fronted by the strong vocalist Simon Daniels who also plays guitar and keyboards, well it´s not a groundbreaking record but it doesn´t have to be now does it?
