AXIS "Silver Satin/Runaway Love" PRIVATE MODERN SOUL BOOGIE REISSUE 7"
NEW REISSUE on ICE CITY
Originally released back in 1984, Axis was a short-lived band formed in California by guitar player/vocalist Byron Bordeaux who wrote "Silver Satin". They were a band that was to meet the fate of so many that came before them, releasing just this one privately pressed 7". Releasing may be an overstatement, as the record was never officially distributed, with only a couple of hundred 45s made, and sold exclusively at their shows. Radio play, needless to say, was a seemingly impossible feat at the time.
The next few years saw Byron record a good deal of demo tracks, which for the next 30 years would go unreleased, all stuck on a pile of 8-track and cassette tapes. We have unearthed one of these tracks which you can find on the flipside of this 7" - "Runaway Love" was completely recorded and performed by Byron circa 1986.
Following the band's dissolution, Byron continued performing, eventually ending up playing alongside the likes of Bobby Womack, Buddy Miles and The Gap Band. Now in his late fifties, he is still around, writing, playing and recording.
