    Here is some info: http://melodic-hardrock.com/strike-twic ... wice-1990/

    Their album is posted here:

    http://musicmp3spb.org/artist/strike_twice.html

    it's a compilation of demos from 1989-1991 but it doesn't seem to have the song you mentioned on it though.

    Dave, my friend, you seem to be the lucky one.
    Got a "demo" with 11 tracks from my Aussie friend TH always thought this would be the 11-track demo-compilation released by Eonian Records. - Exactly that one Riptorn was pointing out:
    Strike twice - Strike twice -- compilation, 2009

    09.  Tango  (03:28)

    11.  Back Door  (04:33)
    It´s still being sold, so it cannot be posted in here.

    But hey, my version contains your wanted track "Give me your Heart" not only once but in 2 different versions!
    So I did some research and found the proof at freedb.com:
    My version is different to the listed cd version, just like other sources state: "just a few early songs have been re-released".
    Melodic-Hardrock.com wrote:The band end-up in 1993 having wrote many songs where some of them re-released years later from Eonian Records.

    Gene@YouTube wrote:The band ended up signing a record contract with Eonian Records in 2009.
    Unfortunately, the self-titled record pretty much ignored the early years of the band, 1986-1989...


    Hehe, you´ll love reading this:
    I believe I got sort of a demo-compilation containing their early years, including their demo 1990. - Here´s what I got:

    Strike twice (US) - ?Demo Compilation 1987-1990? [demo] (1990?)

    03.  Never let You go  (04:00)
    04.  Get it  (03:01)
    05.  Give me your Heart  (04:03)
    06.  Toys  (03:50)

    08.  Shot down  (03:34)
    09.  Talk talk  (03:35)
    10.  Don´t get in your Way  (03:14)
    11.  Give me your Heart  (04:38)

    • Tracks 1-4 are from the "1990 Demo", that´s for sure. Good sound, almost as good as the 2009 remaster.
    • No idea, where track 5 is from. Due to the good production it´s likely a studio recording.
    • According to Gene tracks 6, 7, (also 8?) and 9 should come from the lost "Once is never enough" (demo 1987). Sound-wise this would fit perfectly to a demo production.
    • They played track 10 live in 1988, so the T10-11 might be from another demo 1997-1988 as well as from their first (1987).

    Would be helpful to have the tracklist of their "Once is never enough" (demo 1987).
    Let´s check the strength of this board, I´m sure someone will come up with detailed information.
    I don´t want to post bullshit info as this board is being mirrored widely - so please be patient… ;)
    Maybe someone to contact Gene? (likely ex-member Gene Rogers/bass)

    Edit (2017.05.20)
    Finally posted (pass is Dejv) - enjoy!

    I am lucky, aren't I? lol

    Can't believe someone has it! I knew about the re-release of Eonian Records in 2009 and thought I'll find the song there, but I actually was looking for the demotape/demo of the band. It certainly didn't help that the band isn't on MA or any other information website that's somewhat accurate. To be honest, I didn't even knew there were demos recorded, I thought it was a bootleg or something in the first place.

    I respect that. Knowing that someone has it just makes me happy. ;)
