Recommended Posts

Anyone else digging this new sleaze band from Motley Crue's label? :headbanger:

 

Check out "I'm Bad" for the best tune that Faster Pussycat didn't write.

You can get the cd at Amazon for $9.99.

Edit: It appears that this band isn't so new as they have a couple of other discs, but they still kick butt.

Good solid band... the ballad is great and the rest is pretty cool too. Good for fans of Miss Crazy.

Lots of Faster Pussycat influence. I like it.

 

Yup great stuff. :headbanger:

I just got my copy in the mail from Amazon and this sucker rocks from start to finish.

 

I wonder if anyone else around here has any of their other discs?

I have S/T and "Seal The Deal" as well as this one.4-5 songs on the new one are actually on their S/T disc.I don't have "Lick'em And Leave'em but from the samples I have heard it sounds like it is as good the others.

I also hear some Faster Pussycat, Bang Tango and Crue. :tumbsup:

Yeah, good call on Faster Puussycat. I do hear a lot of them in this as well. 'Apologize' is great...

Before they were The Last Vegas, they called themselves The Nastys. And they had 3 cd's. 1st:The shameless self-promotion demo. 2nd:old wine, new bottle and the 3rd:goodtime gone bad. The 2nd album had Faster P.cats Brent Muscat producing some songs as well as playing guitar and back-up singing. They were from Grand Rapids, Mi and Chicago. Total Glam Band i mean that with a compliment. The cd's are out of print but you can still find them around.

This is a really good disc. I picked up my copy at Walmart for $9 and I'm glad I did. Its kind of refreshing to have an disc where I don't have to constantly look at the case to see what the title is. The songs are instantly recognizable.

This is one of my favorite releases of 2009. :banger:

 

Is it just me, or does "Apologize" have a Tesla feel to it? Chad's vox definitely have a Jeff Keith feel to them on this song IMO.

I heard this song on the Peacemaker TV show, and first of all I thought it was Buckcherry as it had all the hallmarks of one of their ballads, and vocal style was similar. Then part way through the song a few of the lines I changed my mind to "maybe it's Tesla, as that sounds like Jeff Keith now".

Of course it was neither.

    • Well mate here's the deal Firstly I saw them on their first ever tour with Kenny. Yep was great. Then I saw them about 10 times with Erik. Each and every time they were utterly fantastic. Erik is a beast live and one of the best singers I've seen period. Then he leaves and they get Kenny back 10 years on and way past his best imo and quite frankly pretty poor compared to what Erik bought.  For me, no matter how well they play its just not the same without Erik.  If youve never seen the band with Erik you probably wont understand. So yeah I stand by my comment.  I'll probably never see them live again tbh
    • Skies of Mongolia - Treat
    • No Rest for the Wicked - new sensation Ozzy Osbourne
    • yea, i knew why they got lumped together as grunge because of their clothes and where they came from, just always thought it was weird as they have nothing in common musically speaking.  
    • well if one feels Erik raised the quality significantly, then the band is indeed a shadow of their former selves once he leaves.  whether or not one thinks Erik raised the quality significantly is again up to the individual. mmmbop.   A SHADOW OF YOUR FORMER SELF definition: someone or something that is not as strong, powerful, or useful as it once was: 
    • Agree they are nothing alike. All are called "grunge" but all have different sounds and influences. Soundgarden have a classic metal influence (i.e. Sabbath) whereas Nirvana have a punk/hardcore and alt. rock influence (i.e. Melvins) and Pearl Jam has a classic hard rock influence (i.e. Guess Who). They just came out of the same area/scene and didn't dress glam so got lumped together.
    • "a shadow of themselves" is not preferring one over another singer, it is stating that the band is nothing like itself even though the band was around before your favourite singer was even in the band. That is why it is a ridiculous comment. Shouldn't be hard even for you to understand, Tobi.
    • the vocals were so bad I couldn't really focus on any other part of the song or listen it to long enough to see what it was all about.  Chris Cornell very good vocals, Kurt Cobain bad vocals, Eddie Vedder even worse vocals.  I've seen these three bands often get lumped together but they are nothing alike.  this is how you fuckin' do it.
