I'd be lying if I said was not a little surprised to see that Dangerous Toys is coming to GB Leighton's Pickle Park Bar in July.

I'd also be lying if I said I was not a little bit excited to see this! One of my favorites from back in the late 80's early 90's, kick ass southern sleaze coming to a venue near me. :beerbang:

Oh yeah, it was a great show. They had a local band called 32HeadShots that was pretty good. Then this strange band called Beatallica who played Beatles tunes with a Metallica sound. I couldn't get into them but I didn't hear much either. DT was out by their merch table taking photos, signing stuff and talking with fans so I was over there of course. I asked a Jason a couple of questions:

 

Jeff: With all the 80's bands releasing new cd's is Dangerous Toys going to put out another CD?

Jason: Nope, never.

Jeff: Perhaps a new single track for another Best Of or anything new?

Jason: Nope, we are just having a good time playing all the old stuff and that's what our fans want to hear from us anyway.

Jeff: What is your favorite song to sing?

Jason: <he said some song I had not heard of by Metallica...or he might have Beatallica because he laughed after he said it...or maybe he was laughing at the look on my face because he gets that question all the time>

Jason: My favorite DT song to sing live is Bones In The Gutter. No particular reason other than I like it.

Jeff: Interesting choice, I wouldn't expect you to say Scared I guess but I would have guessed maybe Paintrain or Line Em Up

Jason: Line Em Up is cool, we'll be playing that tonight man!

 

Jason was cool, totally hanging with the fans, he stayed after the show a bit to take pics. Mark Geary and Mike Watson were also out there talking and taking pics before the show. Cool guys.

 

Finally around 12:30a DT hit the stage. They used Beatallica's equipment, and sounded good. Jason had the distinct scratchy voice going but he talks a lot during the show, sometimes even stopping mid-song which I admit I don't like much but he interacts with the crowd a lot. Good DT crowd, some small fights, tossed beers, head banging, one body surfer, and some girls got up on stage and security had to get them down. They played Ten Boots, Bones In The Gutter, Teasn Pleasn, Scared, Queen Of The Nile, That Dog, Sport N A Woody, Outlaw, Sugar Leather And The Nail, Gimme No Lip, Line Em Up, Pissed. That is all I can remember anyway. Someone kept screamin' for Demon Bell finally Jason said we dont play that one live much but we did for the new DVD.

 

Good times, hope they come back.

Beatallica opened the show? They smoke! Freakin hilarious. They don't just "play Beatles songs with a Metallica sound," they do original songs that are kinda like "mashups" of both bands. (i.e. They mix the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows" with Metallica's "The Day That Never Comes" and come out with "Tomorrow Never Comes"...hahaha). I'd love to see them.

 

I saw Dangerous Toys once back in '91 on the ill fated Operation Rock N Roll Tour (w/Judas Priest, Motorhead, Alice Cooper and Metal Church.) I dug'em but they were mercilessly boo'ed off the stage by the crowd waiting for Motorhead, who went on after them.

I seen them during the PISSED tour at my old stomping ground BIRCH HILL..

 

 

I think I remember that gig. Did Disturbance (the "WE ONLY COME OUT AT NIGHT" band) open for'em? That pair played at a dump near me in Lodi, NJ called "Ruins Cafe" around that time (circa 1993/94)... I wanted to go to that show but as fate would have it, I had all four of my wisdom teeth pulled only a day or two before the show so I spent that entire weekend in a haze of painkillers... I was in no shape to go anywhere :rofl:
