Special Deluxe Collector's Edition. Digitally remastered edition of the Canadian rockers' 1985 album including one bonus track. Toronto based four piece Coney Hatch were one of Canada's brightest hopes during the mid-eighties. They impressed fans and critics alike with their rambunctious brand of melodic hard rock, a sound imbued with a certain, some might say typically Canadian, quirkiness. Catchy, for sure, but also containing twists and turns that suggested the band had been students of a number of hard rockin' maple leaf acts from April Wine to the riff hungry swagger of Triumph and all points in between. Friction was the band's third and, as it turned out, their final album. It was a record designed to infiltrate the mass market, with catchy hooks and a selection of punishing riffs. Issued in 1985 and crafted by renowned British producer Max Norman (Ozzy Osbourne, Y&T, Lynch Mob) the record was received with great critical enthusiasm, but hit a brick wall at their record company. With Def Leppard and Bon Jovi receiving major promotional pushes, Coney Hatch were sidelined and left, without the financial budget, to fight their own corner. It was a crushing disappointment, leaving the band in a state of confusion and, ultimately, unable to carry on. Their legacy, however, continues to grow, with many citing Friction as their finest and, possibly, one of the best albums released that year.
