Brian Kilcourse has been part of the San Francisco music scene since the early 70's, when he was one-third of the legendary 'power trio' MISTRESS, featuring guitarist Greg Douglass (later of Steve Miller and Greg Kihn fame). In 1995, the German record label TAXIM released Mistress' album, FREEFLYTE, and as a result of the positive feedback, Brian was encouraged to start recording again as a solo artist. MEGATON MELODIES is a collection of the best of Brian's work from 1997-2002. All songs are written and performed by Brian, recorded at RED HEN Studios in his home town of Walnut Creek, California. *** RECENT REVIEWS!!! ***** Reviewed 2/2003 by Didier Becu, for the Belgium Fanzine ORIGINAL SIN: BRIAN KILCOURSE Megaton Melodies (CD)(Own Release) And now a record from someone who doesn't believe in all hype of modern rock 'n roll simply as he seen it all! Brian Kilcourse used to play twenty years ago in the rock'n roll circuit. Nothing was made on record but along with his band Slim Chance And The Questionnaires, Brian saw all the bars and pubs in Northern California while performing his music there, but now the time was ripe to get his stuff onto CD and that's this CD here. Brian poses in Marilyn Monroe-style (you know the famous painting from Warhol) on the sleeve but the man is sober enough to let all signs of rockdom pass him by as this is a pure honest rock album, rock that is a bit reminiscent of AOR-artists like Chris Rea or even Dire Straits. 'Megaton Melodies' is the kind of record that never will be noted as one of the biggest things, it's just something honest...something from the heart, and you know as good as I do what does mean these days....
