Ampage "Autobahn"

First of all, props go to Tony of Record Robot fame for digging this one up. Ampage was one of those Hollywood Sunset Strip hard rock bands that partied hard and rocked even harder. Well okay, it's probably the other way around. My question is are they called Ampage because of like, the volume of their amplifiers or were they once called Rampage and at their first show it got spelled wrong on the marquee and they just decided "fuck it, we'll call ourselves that". These are the quandaries that keep me awake at night.

Ampage informs us through the majesty of song that there is "no speed limit on the Autobahn". Well duh. Everyone already knows that, Ampage. What's your next single? "The Drinking Age In Canada Is 19"? Already knew that too. A more helpful song would be something like "Monster Island Is Actually A Peninsula". Actually, thats a cool song title. I'm gonna go write that one right now.

Obviously the band wasn't very well documented as the above photo of their record 'Champagne and Caviar' is the highest quality one I could find. Ampage is currently in the studio recording their latest record "The Statue Of Libery Was A Gift From French People".
