Convict

At the time of its release, Convict's Go Ahead ... Make My Day arrived without much fanfare, as did many an indie record in the eighties. It was only after many years that it was revealed that this was yet another fake band, brought to you by the same folks responsible for Piledriver and once again featuring Gord Kirchin on vocals, here going under the name Terry "The Con" Browning. Unlike Piledriver's thrash leanings, Convict opted for a straightfoward metal approach, with simplistic mid-tempo songs that at times approached radio-friendly ("When Your Dreams Are Over"). Kirchin's vocals are instantly recognizable to anyone who's heard Piledriver, and as such are just fine, but the pedestrian songwriting puts this album in the mediocre category.
