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?

    • Lily Lowe - Scream      After listening to her debut album “Löwe“, it’s evident why LILY LOWE is being coined Norway’s new lady of rock. This young singer and songwriter – real name Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – has the voice, the looks and essentially, talent, to become a star. The mastermind behind “Löwe” is Norway’s rock institution Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Dream Police, Jorn Lande etc.) who not only co-wrote the songs, but also is the musical director & producer, and play all over the record. In fact, most of Wig Wam members play on the album, alongside other Scandinavian renowned musicians. But don’t lose the focus here: LILY LOWE is the star on the album: with her intense delivery of brazen vocals is sure to reign right alongside the most prominent rock artists to date. An she writes very good songs as well. LILY LOWE was a contestant for Norway’s Eurovision this year with the great glammy hard rock tune ‘Bad Baby’ (included into the album) but if you think her music is bland you better listen to “Löwe” carefully. Having a song titled ‘Handsome Whore’ in the track list give you an idea this album isn’t ‘Eurovision saccharine’ at all. This rocks, hard. Holter has provided a bright, crisp, rocking production for Lowe’s voice and he drops some killer riffs to boot, like on opener ‘Scream’ which while wrapped by a modern production it’s very classic rock. The kind of riff that worked in the Seventies, the Eighties, and today. ‘Bad Baby’ is the hit, catchy, infectious, with Lily showcasing why she grew up listening Guns N’ Roses and Motley crue. The glam metal ‘Daddy’s Type’ is probably the song that most reveals Holter’s involvement, because this could easily could be into any Wig Wam album. It’s almost like you get a little shocked when it’s not Åge Sten Nilsen who sings. On “Run” Lily & Holter try something different, more modern and adding some electronics to the mix, but don’t be fooled, this album rocks. “Löwe” is a catchy driving good debut album by this talented young woman, helped by a cast of top Scandinavian musicians. LILY LOWE is an artist we will certainly hear more about in years to come.   01 – Scream 02 – Crying Game 03 – Bad Baby 04 – 911 05 – Caught in a Dream 06 – Daddy’s Type 07 – Handsome Whore 08 – So Long 09 – Run Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – vocals, drums Trond Holter – guitars, keyboards, backing vocals Bernt Jansen – bass, backing vocals Magnus Galguften – drums Tom Jensen – keyboards
    • Tesla have released a new track titled "Time to Rock"  (Since this isn't really a video per se, I decided to drop it here in the hard rock forum)      
    • 1. Cinderella - Heartbreak Station   2.  Poison - Flesh & Blood   3.  Slaughter - Stick It To Ya 4.  Warrant - Cherry Pie 5.  Ratt - Detonator 6.  Winger - In The Heart Of The Young 7.  Jon Bon Jovi - Blaze Of Glory 8.  Trixter - Trixter 9.  The Black Crowes - Shake Your Money Maker 10. Pretty Maids - Jump The Gun
    • Nazareth - Surviving the Law Solid disc featuring Carl Sentance's second go round on vocals; that lead off track "Strange Days" is particularly good!  
    • listened a couple times, a few ok tunes but nothing I feel the need to listen to ever again. shame.
    • Jokes on you; I don't even have an attic. 
    • Heard this today and looks like being underwhelmed is nothing different. Musically it's still top notch, but there's quite a few pretty weak songs on this one. Way below par for HEAT. 'Hollywood' and 'Wings Of An Aeroplane' were the two stand outs for me, and a couple of others were okay, but for the most part, really quite underwhelming.  I like Kenny's vocals and there's no really prevalent issue other than the fact that some of the songs are just poorly written. Sad, yet simple.
