An obscure AOR guitar group from the USA, American Noise recorded just one album in 1980. However, that self-titled collection is considered to be something of a minor classic among rock cognoscenti, with the bombastic ‘Running Through The Night’ earning particular praise. However, shortly afterwards, Craig Balzer (vocals/guitar) and Bruce Balzer (guitar) - the brothers who formed the band - elected to dissolve the group. They and George Stipl (keyboards), Jerry Moran (keyboards), Greg Holt (bass) and Tommy Rich (drums) disappeared from the music scene thereafter.
