It seems the older I get the more I appreciate this sub genre. Insanely catchy lyrics and wonderful vocal harmonies. When I listen I imagine all the best life has to offer. I love Big Bang Babies and Tryx. Talks Cheap is not quite on the same level. Town Klown are good as well. Shame all they have is a 5 song demo. L.O.U.D. would likely fall into this genre as well.

 

What are some of the other bands in the genre and how can I get their releases?

Ironically Talks Cheap and Queeny Blast Pop share lineage...

 

and agreed there are many and IF they have cd's...

 

Sleezeroxx has an impressive downloads area with a ton of unknown glam stuff available.

 

 

I like Krayola Kids, Dikk Trikkle, The Zeros, Rev'lon Red, Cherry Bang, Ruby Slippers, Penny Lane, Strawberry, Sassycat, Glamour Punks, Juicy Miss Lucy, Ana Black, Guttersluts,Swingin Things...oh and the Fizzy Bangers are a fave of mine too!

 

That Demondoll site releases a bunch of this stuff but a good portion of it is cdr's...

 

Best bet especially obscure and demo stuff is downloads i recon.

Wasn't Cherry Bang called Bubblegum Mafia before? I like 'em a lot.

Big Bang Babies always were so sweet to me, especialy with "Love Drug", it sounds like candies :D

 

Try Pepsi Pop also

I had some demos from bands like Queeny Blast Pop, Krayola Kids, and Revlon Red on cassette. If possible I would like to get them on cd. Not sure how many have heard Play Rough before. They veer into candy glam territory on a few of their tracks.

Anyone else buy Darling Died Suicide? I have that in my collection. It's not really that great. Considering the time it came out it's amazing it even exists. I bought the Queeny Blast Pop. I love the first 6 tracks. After that it's highly disappointing. They dropped the bubblegum sound in favor of Green Day.

 

I would like to get more from this genre. Not sure if anything else is available and affordable.

Missed this thread. I own a lot of the stuff mentioned here, but to be honest, very little of it really works well for me. The second Hollywood Teazse album has some great stuff on it, love Big Bang Babies but I only really like one or two songs from most the others. Penny Lane have a couple of really cool tunes, but also a lot that go in one ear and out the other.

 

And seriously, Dikk Trikkle is the best band name ever. I've not actually heard this one - are they actually any good?

I like the Dikk Trikkle release.. actually listen to it 4 or 5 times a year.

Play Rough is awesome.....was friends with Rawleigh (lead singer) for many years back in the 90's. Have both of their demos transferred professionally to CD. Love them!!

 

Erotic Suicide is a good one too.....they veer a little towards sleazier hard rock...but would put them in with some of the other bands you mentioned.

 

Fashion Police is another one I'd recommend.

 

Lipstick is an extremely rare but great one too.

    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.

    • FireHouse officially name Nate Peck as their new full-time frontman and lead vocalist Metal Sludge — News from the FireHouse camp as they announce their new lead vocalist. Fans of FireHouse and our readers here at Metal Sludge are all aware of the unfortunate news of CJ Snare‘s sad passing back in April and now the band have named his replacement. The band had been performing with fill-in vocalist Nate Peck since 2023 when Snare had to take a leave to deal with medical issues and surgery. Now the band are embracing the move forward and have officially named Nate Peck as their new frontman and vocalist. Read the band’s full statement below as was shared on their social media.     Nate Peck and FireHouse paying tribute to CJ Snare   **AMERICAN ROCK BAND FIREHOUSE ANNOUNCES NEW VOCALIST, NATE PECK** With the untimely passing of CJ Snare, American rock band, FireHouse, has officially announced their new lead vocalist, Nate Peck. Peck, 2023 American Idol golden ticket recipient, performed an outstanding audition for Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Richie praised Nate’s performance saying, “That was brilliant…The best rock singer EVER that we’ve had. You’ve got it!” Katy Perry looked to the sky and said, “Actually, he’s SO good!” High praises from all 3 judges got him unanimous consent to move onto the next level of the competition. Peck ultimately decided to leave the show to pursue his career in music his own way: playing live music in Nashville’s booming rock scene and guest singing with national artists like Jack Russell’s Great White. Peck was first introduced to Bill Leverty by Jack Russell’s Great White guitarist, Robbie Lochner. Leverty explained, “When I first heard Nate’s vocal range, tone and control, I immediately knew that he’d be the perfect fit, filling in for CJ who was recovering from surgery. I advocated hard to get Nate out to play at New England Rockfest in October of 2023. He learned our songs very quickly and absolutely crushed it at the show. I then sent some video to CJ and he agreed saying, THAT’S the guy!” CJ and Nate immediately became very good friends. According to Peck, “CJ and I would talk regularly, a few times a week. He would give me vocal coaching, advice on touring and life in general. He was definitely a great mentor for me.” Peck has been singing with FireHouse since October of 2023, wowing audiences around the country. “I am honored to be working with these guys and singing these great songs.” FireHouse music will stand the test of time. Catch them on tour performing their hits “Love of a Lifetime”, “When I Look Into Your Eyes”, “Don’t Treat Me Bad”, “All She Wrote”, “Reach for the Sky”, “Shake and Tumble” and many more, bringing the fans the melodic hard rock they’ve loved for decades. https://metalsludge.tv/firehouse-officially-name-nate-peck-as-their-new-full-time-frontman-and-lead-vocalist/
