ROUGH CUTT (The Perry McCarty Years) - Rhythm Machine (Previously Unreleased) *0dayrox Exclusive* - full

For those that may not know, in 1987 Paul Shortino decided to leave ROUGH CUTT to join multi platinum recording artist Quiet Riot. This left Rough Cutt looking for a new frontman in order to move forward. After a nationwide search for a new vocalist, the band decided Parramore ‘Perry’ McCarty (ex Warrior / Atomic Playboys) was their man and they entered the studio with legend Ronnie James Dio who produced & recorded some of their new songs.
This new Rough Cutt lineup taped more songs to shop to record labels for a new deal, which never crystallized. Now all these recordings – 17 tracks – are being released for the first time on a CD titled “Rhythm Machine (The Perry McCarty Years)“.
This is killer set of hard rocking songs with a lot of bite, very finely recorded and with a very good sound quality. It’s a shame this album was shelved back in the day, but now we have the chance to hear this terrific slice of classic ’80s American Hard Rock.

This is definitely one for the history books for any fan of Rough Cutt and Perry McCarty. It was a short lived time but one full of creativity, songwriting and recording which would eventually see Matt and Amir move onto Jailhouse, and Perry move onto joining Steve Stevens & The Atomic Playboys.
Highly Recommended
