Axe Victim is the debut album by art rock band Be-Bop Deluxe, released in June 1974. Axe Victim was recorded in AIR London, Audio International Studios and CBS Studios, all located in London, England. The material is different from later releases; it was released at the height of the glam rock era in Britain, with the band's music and image being influenced by the musical zeitgeist
When Be Bop Deluxe's first album was released during the glam rock wave in 1974 and the band (then comprised of Bill Nelson and Ian Parkin on guitars, Robert Bryan on bass, and Nicholas Chatterton-Dew on drums) turned up on the back of the record cover in heavy makeup, it was viewed as being in the David Bowie mold, which certainly. took in Nelson's thin but confident tenor vocals and the uptempo rock approach, and even ballads like "Adventures in a Yorkshire Landscape" that sounded a lot like Bowie's "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide.
I first discovered Be Bop Deluxe through their Sunburst Finish album, which I think is a really excellent example of 70's glam rock. I was intrigued, so I decided to give Axe Victim a try, but found myself a bit disappointed by it. Nelson's guitar playing is certainly impressive and has a very unique style, but with the exception of the final track, No Trains To Heaven, the songs lack hooks, and I find them difficult to remember even a few minutes after having heard them.
