Fifteen years later, original members Keith Satchfield and Harry Hill put the band back together with a new lineup and are active at this time. Discography: Turn the Hell On (1980) Back with a Vengeance (1982) Back with a Vengeance: The Anthology (2002, compilation) Storm (2005) 3) A Russian Hip-Hop artist Evgeny “Fist” Kulakov (Евгений Кулаков) was born on 29 January 1983 in Moscow. He began his musical career in 1999. His first experimental album “Такой, Какой Есть” (“I Am, As I Am”) was released in 2001; the style of that record could be classified as a standard rap, however all songs on the album are very lyrical. These days Fist feels a bit ashamed of that release, because back then he was greatly influenced by wish to make rap music, while now he has found his real musical style, which isn’t as simple to classify as his first work (however his music still has some hip-hop elements). The followed albums aren’t easy to associate with a particular music genre. Fist says that he is just making music that comes out of his hart, and does not limit himself by frames of particular genre(s). Lyrics of Fist are actually poetry (even without the music they will keep their undiminished artistic value), and instrumentals he is using are mostly very soft, gentle and melodic; they include some elements of Hip-Hop, but also a lot of elements from other musical styles (you can hear a lot of classical instruments in his tracks for instance). At the moment (april 2008) Fist has 6 CD’s released, including 4 unique albums: — “Такой, Какой Есть” (“I Am, As I Am”), 2001 — “Тенденция Развития Спокойного Безумия” (“Tendency Of Development Of Quiet Nonsense”), 2003 — “Мир Искусства” (“The World Of Art”), 2004 (re-released under the name “Другая Музыка” (“Other Music”), 2005) — “Как Птицы” (“As Birds”), 2005 4)Formed in 1979 by Ottawa‐born Ron Chenier, the singer/ guitarist recruited players and began honing their chops doing small clubs in and around the Toronto area.
The band quickly graduated to the 'B circuit', touring the Eastern Canadian / US areas for the next year and a half. The group took their approach to music into the studios and cut the independently released ROUND ONE in the spring of 1979. The band's sound was dominated by guitars and keyboards with no in‐studio tampering. Produced by the Chenier’s brother Norman ( Jack ) and was recorded on a shoestring budget. Songs "Too Late", "Madness" and "Who Did You Love" showed the band's penchant for writing driving, simple, yet complex songs. Fist returned to the road and toured practically every corner of the eastern half of the continent for the next year.
The band was signed to a world wide deal with A & M in the summer of 1980 and quickly returned to the studio. They emerged from Toronto's Amber Studios that fall and released HOT SPIKES. The band hired George Semkiw to engineer and produce. The only difference between HOT SPIKES and its predecessor was the new album caressed them gently.
Backed by songs like the anthemic "Reality" and lead off track "Money", a song about the hustle and bustle of society's drive for materialism, HOT SPIKES showed a maturity, harnessed by Semkiw’s experience. Other notable cuts included "Lord I Miss You" and "Teenage Love Affair" “Never Come Back” “Alimony”, intended to garner the band radio play. The tours continued, with FIST seeing practically every province and state over the next year. The band regrouped, and with a new release, FLEET STREET in '81. "Double Or Nothing" again showcased Chenier's talent for writing slick, guitar riffs, while "Thunder In Rock" was easily the year's best tune on the radio waves.
With the clever addition of a sax solo, "Thunder In Rock" is probably most synonymous with Fist's music, if any song is at all. However, other killer cuts included "Open The Gates", the title track and "Evil Cold". Backed by the album's success, the group took the show on the road again, this time playing outdoor festivals with the likes of Heart, Motor Head, Krokus, Scorpions and many more. The band took some time off following the tour's end in 1982 and didn't re‐emerge until the IN THE RED album in '83. FIST toured and then went back into the recording studio in 1985 to record the album DANGER ZONE which has the harnessed intensity of tracks like Muscle Gun.
Ron Chenier decided to take time off in '86. The band got back together in '91 for a series of dates on the Ontario circuit, which led to a full reunion and a new album in 1993 called REIGN OF TERROR. Released on MaGaDa Records, Fist again had landed a deal with an independent label. A criss‐cross tour of the continent.
In 1995 FIST released a second album on Magada Records called Loud Loud Loud. In 2008 Fist played a reunion concert in Ottawa Ontario Canada and because of this Thunder In Rock live DVD release in Canada Fist delivers straight forward but well crafted classic rock sound and melodic numbers that show their versatility. For the past 32 years, Fist has been truly a Canadian Classic Rock Band that has a faithful underground fan following. In 2011 Ron Chenier went back into his private recording studio and recorded a new album called Bolted Door 2012. The album was signed by Hellion Records in Germany. Fist was very well received at the 2012 Headbanger Open Air concert in Germany. Fist (also known as Myofist in the UK) was a Canadian Heavy Metal Band, formed in 1979 by Ottawa-born Ron Chenier.
The band is probably best known for their 1981 album Fleet Street (known as Thunder in Rock in the UK) and more specifically the track Thunder in Rock.
