Street Level Glam Punk Bands

Recommended Posts

Hey guys - I'm drawing a blank here ... Can someone throw some out some "street level glam punk type" bands that are CURRENTLY ACTIVE??? I'm talking D Generation / NY Loose and Backyard Babies / Dregen / Hardcore Superstar type acts (but would like to focus more on North America). I'm working on something and, well, if I can't think of anyone, obviously nothing will get done ...

 

Thanks

Good stuff all around guys. What I'm actually looking for are POPULAR (or once popular and still pulling crowds) bands in that vein. The obvious ones that I'm just not thinking of - Circus of Power (yeah, I know not glammy, but still ... the whole street thing), Little Caesar, that sort of thing but NEW. Chrome Division or Bullet might be two examples ... D Generation would be the perfect example of what I'm looking for - any others out there????

What is/are DGeneration up to anyway? Man I dug that band.

 

 

What about Buckcherry? They just dropped a F@!k related EP?

 

The D'Molls perhaps? They from the States?

 

Spread Eagle?

 

Get with Mike Hannon, American Dog, certainly time for a Salty Dog reunion.

 

Saigon Kick is supposed to be doing something.

 

Those examples might not be sleazy enough...

Not so much 'street glam punk' but these US bands have reasonable followings...

Station are awesome, but not very vintage, I mean, they are newbies...

 

 

Dave, what say to LA Guns?

 

They can still pull in a crowd and are together in 2 forms.

 

What about Black Tora? They could pull in a crowd and are amazing. Might be a bit too metal though...

 

 

Teaze still play around don't they? You know the band that became Roughhouse.

 

Love/Hate?

 

Dangerous Toys?

 

Jetboy?

Not any more. Last I heard, Tracii Guns finally realized the futility of keeping "his" version of L.A. Guns going so right now the Phil Lewis fronted band is the only game in town (William Shatner voice: "But...for...how...LONG?")

 

Love/Hate?

 

Love/Hate are officially no more as of earlier this year. Jizzy Pearl was gonna release one final EP under the Love/Hate name but as he was the only original L/H member performing on it, he got into a hassle with Skid over the use of the name and he ended up releasing it as a solo joint (pun intended) instead.

 

Warrior Soul?

 

Kory Clarke is about release (or may have already released) a new solo album called "Payback's A Bitch." Not sure what the status of W.S. is as of now.

Tried to work with Kory a couple of years ago on some Warrior Soul dates. Let's just say his self worth is, ummm, inflated.

:)

 

Too bad, but one could assume by his "presence" that he is/could be rather self important... or at least believe his own hype.

 

 

Dave, you mentioned Lil Caesar and I looked 'em up again and it looks like they are still kicking around...

Ta-da ... Terry hit the nail partly on the head, anyway. See, I wasn't thinking of ANY of those bands ... although I have albums from every single one. I was just blanking them all out.

 

Now, to concentrate on the Hardcore Superstar / Dregen's of the world :)

 

But Stateside versions right?

    • you can choose to use your own lyrics or just describe the premise and it generates them for you - the more detail you put in the closer it will be to what you want.You have 3000 characters of space.  You then describe how the song sounds.  It then creates 2 different songs, but you can carry on creating as many options as you want. You only get 10 songs a day though on the free options and you can't use commercially on the free version - you know like upload to Spotify etc. 
    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.
