Boot Camp, based in Dallas since 1991 (with a Stamford, CT resident as lead vocalist!) finally delivers their long promised debut CD of muscular power pop...with a few surprises.
After releasing a superb 7" single on Parasol in late 1997, Boot Camp offers this limited edition CD EP co-produced by Adam Schmitt and Boot Camp leader Gullic. In addition to the Brian Leach (Sugarbuzz) and Adam Schmitt performances on the blistering cover of Neil Sedaka’s ‘70s smash "Bad Blood," As You Were contains guest appearances from Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander and ex-Kiss member Bruce Kulick on "Rise And Shine." And, the opening track "Spent" was featured on the Pop Culture Press CD sampler available at 1999’s SXSW.
As You Were is glorious one-stop shopping for the ‘70s pop culture fanatic who thinks that the current batch of new rock bands have strayed too far.
