    US Traditional Heavy Metal quartet BOOTLEG were formed in Fairfax, Virginia, in the the fall of 1980.
    Their sole release was to be their privately pressed 1981 45, which paired "Bitch Chaser" and "Hard Up For Love", recorded at Omega Studios that January.
    The record is now pretty sought after by early Metal collectors, expect to pay over $100 for a copy with the cool hand stamped "picture sleeve".
    And the music?
    Charmingly naive in places, but delivered with chutzpa and the self-belief to carry off the more cliche/corny aspects of the songs and raise them above the ordinary as a result.
    Nightsblood puts it better than i, saying that Bootleg, "could have ended up sounding cheesier than a Wisconsin Velveeta factory, but they managed to avoid that fate".
    Bootleg continued to play live in the clubs in the Washington/Baltimore region until around the fall of 1984.
    Drummer Steve Vollmer and guitarist Allen Jackson then went on to play in another band called PUBLIC ENEMY, and later the pair played together again in several other projects.
    In June of 1996 Allen and Steve re-united with their former Bootleg bandmate, singer/guitarist Jade Tavaglione.
    Joe "Bassman" Belcher was recruited to replace the unavailable Mike Vogel, holding down the low end and completing the band's line up.
    After careful consideration they decided to call the new/old project VOLLMER rather than stick with the old Bootleg moniker.
    The band then recorded a full length studio album entitled "Welcome To The Rat Race", which was released in 1998 by Bark Loud Records.
    2002 saw Vollmer return with the follow up CD, "Motel 69", a further studio album, bolstered by a live rendition of AC/DC's "Overdose".
    The band have continued to play live and record, recently replaceing Joe Belcher on bass with Carl "Tommy Gun" Thompson.
    Look for Vollmer playing live around the clubs if you live in the Washington DC area, and keep yer peepers peeled for further releases from them.
    This particular "Bootleg" is no relation to the band of the same name who released a 1982 single entitled "Dagdrömmar".
    That recording was by a Swedish band from Lund.

    Hi All,

    I'm new here, but a friend told me there's been some interest in this record and it's become a little sought after.

    Well, it's been 30 years since we made that record, but we're still together and are having a concert/party to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Bootleg and the 20th anniversary of Vollmer. The show will be on October 8, 2016 in Leesburg, Virginia. Details of the show and how you can get in FREE are below.

    Oh yeah, we also have a VERY LIMITED number of the 45s with Bitch Chaser and Hard Up For Love (REAL LIMITED; like 2 or maybe 3). If you guys are interested, I can have the entire band sign one and put it up on eBay. Let me know what you think.

    Steve Vollmer (Drummer for Bootleg and Vollmer)
