Strange Alliance is the debut album by Tommy Keene and was self-released on LP in 1982 on his Avenue Records label (catalog #AVE 001). Initially slated for release on Skip Groff's Limp Records, it still carries the Limp catalog number (LIMP 1010) in the run-out groove of the vinyl. This album has never been reissued on any other format. Keene's band line-up would remain the same until he moved to Los Angeles following the release of his major label debut in 1986. In addition, a former bandmate of bassist Ted Niceley's from Nightman, Mike Colburn (who had also been an early member of (The) Razz), contributes backing vocals on three songs.
Famous quotes containing the words alliance and/or strange:
“I think that a young state, like a young virgin, should modestly stay at home, and wait the application of suitors for an alliance with her; and not run about offering her amity to all the world; and hazarding their refusal.... Our virgin is a jolly one; and tho at present not very rich, will in time be a great fortune, and where she has a favorable predisposition, it seems to me well worth cultivating.”
—Benjamin Franklin (17061790)
“A strange and vanity-devoured, detestable woman! I do not believe I could ever learn to like her except on a raft at sea with no other provisions in sight.”
—Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (18351910)
