New Music Monday. The first time the Doc was introduced to Tuk Smith was when he played guitar for The Heart Attacks. The Doc owns the Hellbound and Heartless disc. For whatever reason, this ended up being the last album from The Heart Attacks. This led Tuk to form his own band called Poison Arrows. Right when the Doc discovered Poison Arrows, Tuk had already formed his new band called Biters. The Doc was able to see Biters in concert three times at various venues. On one occasion, Tuk was working the merch booth, and the Doc got a chance to talk music with him for over an hour. He’s a great guy, talented musician, and he remembers the Doc every time I see him play. Biters released multiple albums and EPs, great glam rock, power pop in the same style as Cheap Trick and Thin Lizzy. Unfortunately, there were label issues which led Tuk to put Biters on indefinite hiatus and form Tuk Smith and the Restless Hearts. His new band quickly released three singles and was scheduled to open the Stadium Tour (Joan Jett, Poison, Def Leppard, Motley Crue). However, COVID happened, and that tour was put on hold. Again, more label issues left Tuk unable to release their debut album and his band was removed from the opening slot of the Stadium Tour. But now, we finally have a new tune and an upcoming album primed to be released from Tuk Smith and the Restless Hearts. Here’s the first single, Ballad Of A Misspent Youth. The Doc is so looking forward to the album and another tour. (They had a brief tour last year and the Doc got to see them at the Liar’s Club in Chicago) Rock On.
