Should've been born in the 50s

You know those periods in your life when you regress and let your musical tastes drift backwards to explore what history has to offer in the way of some serious rock n roll? I'm in one of those phases and the fruits I am reaping are fan-freaking-tastic.

Over the weekend, I stumbled across a lesser-known gem called Hard Stuff. They were a short-lived British hard rock / metal band with that early 70s heavy, bluesy groove. They released 2 proper LPs, Bulletproof  and Bolex Dementia under Deep Purple's label and toured Europe quite extensively with DP. However, a car crash that would leave 2 members of the 3 piece badly injured would ultimately push the band to fold.

But what they left behind from their 2 year run and rock stardom is something to be appreciated:
