Forgotten Hard Rock Albums - Sleeze Beez - "Screwed, Blued, and Tattooed" (1990)


Recommended Posts

Ahhh.... the good ole days. When one could go into their local record shop, pull out an album cover and by the titles of the songs, you knew what you were in for. For me, that was definitely the case with SLEEZE BEEZ. I intially hated the band name, but they looked pretty cool so I took a chance.

Actually being their 2nd album, "Screwed Blued and Tattooed" came out in 1990 and blew me away. As soon as "Rock in the Western World" started, I turned this up as loud as possible!! Sleazy, gritty, melodic rock! Definitely, not forgotten by me. 

Some of the many highlights:

I found Powertool to be a disappointing follow-up. 

It had its moments but nowhere near as killer as SB&T

I have to agree with Dan, I thought Powertool was the better of the two albums.   But I enjoyed SB&T as well.   I always thought "Stranger Than Paradise" should have been a bigger hit for the band.

Whole heartedly agree.

I had Screwed since back in the day, and while it was good it never blew me away.

Picked up Powertool many years later and absolutely loved it from start to finish. Defo had a Leppard vibe to it, which helped.

Love both albums and each album probably has the same amount of killer tunes for me... I think. Both awesome. And 'This Time' is the biggest smash hit single that never was from the whole era, imo.

    • Should be a good match. 
    • Congrats on progressing, England. But, how good is Mbappe for France!
    • Unfortunately, this doesn't surprise me. These days, a lot of people have difficulty accepting criticism.
    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it.
