Harder Sleaze Bands (Erotic Suicide, Crashdiet, etc)


Recommended Posts

Looking for some help here -

Looking for new bands that fall in the harder edged sleaze category - things that would fall into the same category of Erotic Suicide, Crazy Lixx, Crashdiet, Slam Alley, old Hardcore Superstar, the first Spread Eagle CD , and I'd even toss the first Faster Pussycat CD in there

Erotic Suicide = Perseverance is the ultimate CD in my  eyes - so the closer to that, the better!

Internet searches just lead me to lists with things like Cinderella (not Sleeze), Alleycat Scratch (not hard). and more glammy type  bands

I'm afraid that I have been looking and listening for so long that there might be nothing new to discover!  Please prove me wrong,.

Nice topic and I for 1 appreciate someone name dropping that 1st Spread Eagle album as that is 1 muther of a record from start to finish and easily in my top 5.


There are plenty of bands in that vein and I am rather certain folks are going to comment a plenty.


Immediately thought of this band, which I am sure you must be familiar with:


A few other lesser known bands that make my nipples rock hard that should fit the bill:


Could go on forever, better pause for a few and let some songs sink in. Happy youtubing...

Why stop? These are some great suggestions 

I love Lipz, Speed Stroke, and Cruel Intentions

There are others here on my playlist that I need to revisit

I remember Sea Hags as not being as hard edged as the others , but maybe it’s time to give them another listen 

Thanks got the suggestions!

This is one of my favorite covers of all time - it’s a fun take on the original

Aussie's own Candy Harlots, Snake Bite Whisky

Candy Harlots are awesome. I even have their Fourplay EP that I think came free with that magazine Hot Metal that I used to read religiously in the early 90s.

Candy Harlots were awesome  with both singers, the EP cassette came with " Hot Metal ".  The digi pack of the album of the album is heavily wanted.

Ron Barrett was the first singer

Those are all fine selections. Wish the Murderdolls would have done more, but at least we still have Wednesday 13...

And yes Lipz is a fave of mine as well.



Always been a big fan of Murderdolls and W13.. the Transylvania 90210 album absolutely rips.

Some great suggestions in here ..

Bands I know and love (Lipz, Speed Stroke, Cruel Intentions)

Bands I know but never really gave a shot (Sister, Murderdolls, Candy Harlots)

Bands I can’t find anywhere (Snow, Sister Scream, Pyn Siren)

Please keep them coming!

Love me some heavier sleaze like Spread Eagle but find this genre can be very hit or miss... Like Hardcore Superstar.

What about the band Confess?

    • FASTER PUSSYCAT – Like A Ghost (2022) VARIOUS SOURCES - PUBLISHED NOVEMBER 29, 2022     Eighties Sunset Strip favorites FASTER PUSSYCAT are heating up the winter of 2023 with the release of new material in the form of the EP ‘Like A Ghost‘. This release is the first for the band under the Golden Robot umbrella with Taime Downe saying earlier this year “The band and I are over the moon to join the Golden Robot Records rock-n-roll family. We are super excited to release some of our badass new tunes globally – we know the label see our vision and supports the band and we feel completely at home here.” The new songs comes just a few months before Faster Pussycat are expected to tour overseas including Australia. Not bad for a band formed four decades ago and still delivers kick ass rock n’ roll. ‘Like a Ghost‘ is a track about growing up in the 70’s, listening to the radio and doing what kids do and the memories it brings back. It features Taime‘s signature vocals carrying the song through to completion. The production is second to none with blistering guitars and the band in full force. ‘Pirate Love‘, a cover of the legend Johnny Thunders stays true to the original with strong instrumentals, killer vocals and an edge to it – everything you would expect from Faster Pussycat. ‘Nola’ is a song inspired by New Orleans, a city that front man Taime Downe holds dear to his heart. When the band started working on making new music for a release “NOLA” was the obvious choice to lead with. Past year Downe and guitarist Sam Bam Koltun began working together in the studio tracking guitars for this song. And the band is also making available again their cover of Rick Springfield’s classic ‘Jessie’s Girl’ recorded some time ago. Highly Recommended   01 – Like a Ghost 02 – Pirate Love 03 – Nola 04 – Jessie’s Girl Taime Downe – lead and backing vocals Xristian Simon – guitar Sam “Bam” Koltun – guitar, backing vocals Danny Nordahl – bass, backing vocals Chad Stewart – drums BUY www.amazon.com/music/player/albums/B0BLF6SGYX
    • New video for 'Firestarter'. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the latest release from Dennis Ward and Khymera, "Hold Your Ground" will be available on February 10, 2023. Dennis handles lead vocals, bass, and keyboards and is joined by guitarist Michael Klein, keyboardist Eric Ragno, and drummer MIchael Kolar, with Pete Newdeck contributing backing vocals. As has to be expected with Khymera and Dennis, "Hold Your Ground" is another fine slice of high pedigree melodic rock. Khymera has in fact built its reputation as one of the best examples of what great European melodic rock is all about: crystal clear production, soaring vocals, killer musicianship, and songwriting that reminds fans of the heydays of the genre when bands like Giuffria, Icon, and Signal were releasing their classic albums. While it started out as an alliance between Italian producer/musician Daniele Liverani and then Kansas singer Steve Walsh, Khymera developed into a regular musical project when bassist and producer Dennis Ward (Magnum, Pink Cream 69) entered the fold. While known as a bassist, Dennis always sang background vocals with his bands, so he was more than ready and willing to take over the lead vocals for Khymera when the opportunity presented itself.   After releasing the albums "A New Promise" (2005) and "The Greatest Wonder" (2008), Dennis took a break from Khymera for some time before returning with "The Grand Design" (2015). He then returned with another new Khymera album five years later, “Master of Illusions” (2020). Musically, "Master Of Illusions" followed the logical progression of the musical path that was started when Dennis joined the project and was a strong, extremely melodic release, showcasing the fantastic vocal abilities of Dennis and skills as a songwriter and producer. Mercifully, the wait between albums is a bit shorter this time as 2023 will see the release of Dennis and Khymera's next chapter, "Hold Your Ground", an absolute tour de force of glorious melodic rock.Tracklisting:1.

    • urgh both of those songs are a cheese fest. Hard pass 
    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.

    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
    • They're solid and consistent... just missing a bit of something to make them stand out for me, personally. The album is solid, like their other stuff. 
  • Create New...
