Yep in Argent, especially as Rod Argent and Jim we’re cousins.

Didn't Rodford also play in Argent and Charlie too?

Jim Rodford, bass player, The Kinks, Phoenix (I think?), but I remember him with The Zombies, saw live a while back. RIP

In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

Background
This power trio of Latinos from Miami based their musical works on the same model as Canadians Rush. UHF (Ultra High Frequency to you and I) is very technical, bombastic, and on occasion they dip into prog territory similar to early Yes. They can also call up the Metal Gods and thrash out some handy metallized riffs too. This might suggest that the trio were all over the place musically, and they were. However, it's pretty good, if a little raw and rough around the edges, given the low-key budget. The first few tracks are very technical, while toward the end of the album, the trio get mystical and spacey. UHF has been on my radar to review over many years, it's only recently I acquired a decent copy to work with. So yeah, Rush, Yes and a heavy deck of bass overkill a la Geddy Lee. At least you know what you're getting with UHF.

I used to own this. Sold it in the mid 90s to a collector in Sweden. Musically it didn't do a great deal for me, though if I still had it would no doubt keep it purely for the collectibility of it. But is that really a good enough reason for owning something? I think I only ever played the album once.
