ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Great guitar rock! These bad boys may wear leather, but that doesn't mean that they don't care! "Splitting Hares" is a compilation album that was put together by Poptown Records to raise awareness of animal rights on behalf of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

This disc is filled with awesome performances by Twisted Sister's Dee Snider with his band Widowmaker, Roxx Gang, Richie Scarlet (Ace Frehley Band / Mountain), Lovemaker, Enuff Z'nuff, Junebug, the Zeros and more! 13 great tracks in all! The booklet is filled with information that you need to know about our furry & feathered friends. There are also great pics and facts about the bands contributing their efforts to this project.

You don't have to be vegan to respect the other life forms sharing our planet. This collection of heavy hitters proves that even the hardest rockers can have a heart!

"...Cunning title in hand (paw?), SPLITTING HARES is a worthwhile listen for more reasons than several quality songs.... it's not necessary for you to agree with ALL of PETA's principals (personally, I shudder to think of bunnies being blinded with cosmetics... as I gnaw a chicken's wing... Extra Crispy, please) to have a good time here, but I assure you, it does help to raise one's spirits up a bit higher.
Out of a lucky 13, I would have to pick HARE's two better-known contributors as being the best - that being Roxx Gang's (one of the best sleazerawk bands that, sadly, never really was) "Daddy's Farm" and Widowmaker's (yes, as in "Dee Snider" - the comp's a wee dated, natch) "Killing Time".
The gravely rasp of occasional Ace Frehley compatriot Richie Scarlet, a fella whose solo stuff I'd never heard before, makes fine work of "Too Much Heroin", while the quality of Lovemaker's "Homework" rekindles an interest that I'd thought their disappointing EP had stamped out. "Uh-Oh" from The Zeros is the comp's cleverest and most moronic track rolled into one, successfully (and frightfully) hybridizing Nirvana's "Smells Like Team Spirit" with The Who's "The Kids Are Alright" for a song that's... well... memorable, at least..."

"...If I was a political man, that'd be my platform, animal rights. But I am not, because I am in enough trouble already. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, on the other hand, fight the good fight by any means necessary. With flash metal bands, even. "Splitting Hares" is a PETA [awareness] comp featuring a whole slew of glam metal bands. Never mind that they're all wearing leather. That leather was already dead when they wiggled it on. This one's for all the dogs and cats and ducks and monkeys that haven't been shaved, beaten, and mutilated yet. It's a good cause, and a bitchin' record, with tracks by Dee Snider's Widowmaker, Enuff Z'Nuff and more..."
