As Dr Jekyll found out, all too often the alter ego takes on a life of its own; as now it is with Flashpoint. Once just a side project, the ‘tails’ of the Bitches Sin coin, Flashpoint has now evolved in its own right from its NWOBHM progenitor into a bona fide rock ‘n’ roll band for the Twenty-First Century.
Prepare to be blown away…
