Tokyo Motor Fist release first video for song “Pickin’ Up The Pieces”
New “super group” Tokyo Motor Fist featuring Danger Danger singer Ted Poley and Trixter guitarist Steve Brown as well as former Rainbow members Greg Smith on bass and Chuck Burgi on drums have released their first video for their song “Pickin’ Up The Pieces” from their self-titled debut album, which was released via Frontiers Music Srl on February 24, 2017.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Tokyo Motor Fist: “Album opener “Pickin’ Up The Pieces” encompasses all ingredients prominent in feel-good songs that made rock and metal what it was in the ’80s. Thunderous drum pounds? Tick. Choral background vocals? Tick. Outlandish mid-section solo? Tick. Lyrics surrounding heartbreak? Tick. A sure promising start to the eleven track album. Admittedly, the most obvious and distinguishable focal point is Poley’s vocals. Despite this, the album proves to be a collective band effort rather than a platform to hone Poley’s vocals.”
Sleaze Roxx went on to conclude in its review: “Tokyo Motor Fist‘s self-titled release, while it certainly is nothing out of the ordinary for fans of the genre, epitomises the feel and spirit of the members’ former bands and that ilk. If what you desire is for some escapism, to overindulge and reminisce about former good times, when Warrant, Mötley Crüe and Nelson had #1 chart hits, then this may well be sufficient for your fix.”
