No Respect by Vain
  • Originally released in 1989 on the Island record label, ‘No Respect’ is the debut from this California quintet originally from the Bay area of San Francisco
  • The band consisted of Davy Vain on vocals, Danny West and James Scott on guitars, Ashley Mitchell on bass and Tom Rickard on drums. Produced by Paul Northfield, assisted by Davy Vain.
  • Vain, along with Jetboy and the Sea Hags, helped solidify the San Francisco metal scene – contempories included Metallica, Exodus and Death Angel (who Davy Vain produced).
  • Songs such as ‘Secrets’, ‘Who’s Watching You’ and ‘Ready’ really rock, and ‘No Respect’ is one of the best and most underrated albums of the 80's. They had the look and sounded great – they should have been world-famous!
  • Sleevenotes by Ian Callaghan, producer of Mark Radcliffe’s show and Bruce Dickinson’s “Masters Of Rock” on BBC Radio 2.
