Could anyone shed some light on Pretty Boy Floyd - A Little Too Hot For Hell? Was it an unreleased album? If so, has it or is it going to be released at some point? Why wasn't it released?

 

Thanks in advance.

Where did you hear about it? I've never heard the title before but grab a paint brush, an extra long canvas and colour me interested, and nude.

From what I heard the members have all kissed and made up. Pretty By Floyd are still on the bill for M3 in Columbia, Maryland n early May.

Its another collection of demos, and isnt an official release to my knowledge.

Most of the tracks are the same as on the three official demo albums, but there are a couple of others on it, such as the title track, which have not been released.

The tracks are:

A little too hot for hell

Candle in the dark

You broke the rules of love

Till the real thing comes along

Ready for love

Its my life

Lifes a bitch (then you die)

Go wild

Department of youth

Do you wanna rock tonight

 

Funny thing is, I have had some demo's since the mid to late 90s, and most of them have been released, but even that has at least one track thats still unreleased (and its one of my fave songs of theirs strangely)

To be honest, most of the unreleased songs on this collection are nothing special in my opinion.

 

 

As for the current status of the band. A new album has been recorded, but with the ups and downs of Kristys mood swings and his on/off battle with Steve, I'm not gonna hold my breath on its release.

The covers album they were sposed to release about 4 years ago never surfaced, and neither did the album of new material that was sposed to follow that a few months later.

 

From my understanding of the current situation is that once these dates that are already booked are out of the way, they are taking some time off as a band.

Kristy has a new album coming out and I am sure Steve will have a project to work on like Shameless or Penny Lane etc

What I would really like PBF to do is go back an re-record some of these demo's that have either already been released, or never released as its about time we had some of them with a decent production.

Songs like Keep your hands off my radio, Tonight belongs to the young & We cant bring back yesterday, really deserve to be recorded properly.

 

Some of them got re-recorded for Porn Stars when it came out, and some with Shameless, but it would certainly be nice to hear some of the other songs get the same treatment.

Could not possibly agree more.

 

I have 3 CDRs at home full of PBF demos from around 1989-1993 I think most of them are from. Like you say, Howdy, many songs ended up on those official demo CDs through Perris (and a couple on 'Porn Stars'), but I think there's still plenty out there that remain unreleased at all.

 

Whilst I agree that few songs match what was on offer on 'LBWET' there are some great songs there just waiting for the right production job. There's no real garbage on there, and the sound quality doesn't help give a real indication of what the songs could be. The three songs you mention there are, imo, as good as the debut and I think there's at least 10 that could match the strength of the debut.

 

End of the day, I would honestly be happy if they never wrote a new song, and just dedicated the rest of their career to re-recording all these old songs.

 

But would I be correct in assuming there might be copyright issues with Ariel Stiles which might prevent this?

Outside of their debut (which I still love), I litterally can't stand anything they have done since :(

I dont know if there is copyright issues as I doubt the 3 demo albums would have been released, unless of course Kristy has since fallen out with him or something.

Also, if they have already re-recorded some of them, would suggest they still can re-record them.

Maybe Styles would be entitled to royalties, but they would be minimal seeing as its highly unlikely they would get any sort of massive airplay anyway.

 

I dont think Steve had any input in the demo's being released as I think this was after him and Kristy fell out (for the first time or was it second time), although obviously, Steve was the one involved in the Shameless re-recordings.

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?
