Warrant the band were driving down the streets of Hollywood And Vine in there Ferrari around early 1992 when they collided head on by a Mack Truck driven by Nirvana!
Thats the tale of the early 1990s Warrant but guess what they dug in there high heels and lost some members but sludged on and released the pretty decent Ultraphobic album in 1996.
A few years later I ended up buying there live album Warrant 1986-1997 and since i always dug live releases I was onboard! I was surprised as it featured all there hits and yada yada but one song I had not heard which was a bonafide classic to me anyways was Indian Giver.
Indian Giver was from the Belly To Belly album(which to this day I have never heard. If anyone has and wants to share a review of that album ,link it in the comments!)
Indian Giver is a slow stomper almost like Jani Lane(RIP) and Crew were dabbling in some Alice In Chains at the time and decided to mix it with there glammy jammy past and hey for this track it cooks! Check out once the song ramps up into the prechorus and Boom the chorus just kicks!
Jani Lane I’m sure wrote this tune solo like he did for the whole Warrant catalog so kudos to him he could write a decent rock track(Uncle Toms Cabin,Mr Rainmaker and the whole Dog Eat Dog album) but of course like so many others he was caught in the corporate suit and tie world so it’s unfortuante that some people remember him for some of that sappy syrupy power ballad goulash that was bestowed upon us!(Heaven and I Saw Red)
Never the less crank the video posted ….y’all will know what I’m talking about!
