    Formed in Cincinatti Ohio in 1973 around the nucleus of vocalist Donnie Singleton and drummer Les Sharp, four piece Heavy Rock act SPIKE became the first recording band to feature the dazzling guitar of future CJSS, CHASTAIN and SOUTHERN GENTLEMEN mainstay, David T. Chastain, who joined in 1975. The band released their first single, "Porno Queen", backed with "Peaceful And Tranquil", in the late 1970's just before original vocalist Singleton departed. The frontman position would be filled by Stephen Fredrick, and with the change Spike's following began to grow even stronger. Around this time the band had the track "You Got What It Takes" featured on the "WEBN Album Project No.5" LP, an album which the Cincinnati radio station (WEBN) put together in an effort to showcase local talent. The act toured relentlessly, and even landed the opening slot for some shows with BLACK SABBATH and BLUE OYSTER CULT on their "Black & Blue" tour. They finally made another recording available with the 1981 self released "Leah" 7" single, and quickly followed this up the next year with another 45, "Just Want Your Money" on Starbound Records. After the latter single's release, singer Stephen Fredrick departed from the band, initially to join BILLY THE KID, and later recording with the likes of KENZINER, FIREWIND and KINRICK. With bassist Denny Kuller temporarily filling the vacant vocalist post, Spike recorded the track "Bad News" for 1982's "WEBN Album Project No. 7". For a brief period the band added vocalist Kurt Dobkins, but he would eventually be replaced by Mike Skimmerhorn. In 1983 the band released their only album "The Price Of Pleasure", on Starbound Records. The album showcased to dazzling effect the blazing guitar work of David T. Chastain and the powerful vocals of new singer Mike Skimmerhorn. The rhythm section of drummer Les Sharp and bassist Denny Kuller added just the right foundation to punctuate the music. This particular line up of Spike was only around for a short time. The group continued to shop material to labels but failed to get any major interest, so in late 1984 the band decided that Spike had run its course, with David going on to form CJSS and Chastain. Skimmerhorn and drummer Les Sharp, would both later appear in the ranks of CJSS, and Skimmerhorn also went on to sing and play bass with the band Chastain. SPIKE briefly reformed in 1998 for a few dates which were recorded for a prospective live album, although to date it has yet to see release. In 2001 a further Spike album was released on Leviathan Records. "The Forum Sessions", was an archival release comprised of eleven songs recorded "live in the studio" at Forum Studios in Kentucky in 1981, but never previously released.
