Die By The Sword - 1986 / 1991 - (CD)
Solomon Kane was a Progressive Hard Rock band from Rapid City, South Dakota (1981 - 1983). It was formed by members of the midwestern supergroup ASIA (1976 - 1981), which in turn had been formed from the remains of WhiteWing (1968 - 1975). ASIA independently released two albums, "ASIA" and "Armed to the Teeth", which have since been re-released as CDs by several labels including Progaor. WhiteWing was originally on a Minneapolis label called ASI. Progaor also released that album on CD in 2017. The demise of ASIA was a tumultuous one. Almost immediately after "Armed to the Teeth" was released it was announced over the NBC newswire that a European supergroup was forming and was calling itself ASIA. Negotiations began with lawyers from both camps and culminated in Brian Lane, manager of Yes and the new band, flying to Rapid City to see our ASIA. We had been told that the European ASIA?had negotiated with at least seven other North American ASIAs and that they had purchased the name from all of these bands. I personally heard Brian Lane's attorney read off the trademark numbers from all those bands over the phone and then Lane posed an offer: $5000 cash (we had asked for $100,000 or back-up in a global tour) and that he would take me and our band manager, Michael Chambers, to meet with four major labels on the west coast. We felt powerless at this point so we acquiesced. However, months went by with no word from Mr. Lane, and then during that same period our exclusive trademark ownership arrived in the mail! We contacted Lane and told him the contract with his folks was null and void-fraudulent! We spent the next two years touring relentlessly as Solomon Kane striving to generate capital for the battle with their attorneys to get the case tried in the US and hopefully in our jurisdiction.
