Had this for a while now, but I've only got around to listening to it this week. What a gem. Loving it, lots of good songs, a real (pleasant) surprise.


I think I'll need to hear "II"...

I had this out in the car last week and it still rocks! As for the second, I think I only played it a time or two. I would have to give it another listen but if I remember correctly it seems they went a little more "modern" sounding on II and it didn't grab me like the first album did.

I think that physical copies of all the Miss Crazy stuff are now becoming quite hard to come by now, as they dont seem to be pressing anymore, relying on download sales.

    • KINGOFTHEHILL – ‘II’ (Second unreleased album FnA Records release) [2023] *Exclusive* BY VARIOUS SOURCES -- FEBRUARY 7, 2023     In 1990, KINGOFTHEHILL (KOTH) signed a major label record deal with SBK Records (a subsidiary of EMI Music). Scoring popular MTV Music videos for “I Do U” and “If I Say” and continuous touring throughout 1991 with White Lion, Trixter, Lynch Mob, Steelheart, Extreme, etc, KOTH were digging their heels in deep climbing the burgeoning walls of the life of Rock-n-Roll stars. Fast forward 2023, KOTH have reunited with all original members, lead singer Frankie Muriel, Jimmy Griffin (Guitar), Vito Bono (Drums), and George Postos (Bass), and inked a deal with FnA Records to release two albums. One of ’em, titled “II” contains tracks recorded 1991-92 that were slated to be on the band’s sophomore release, which never did happen as the music landscape changed almost overnight. KINGOFTHEHILL frontman Frankie Muriel says ““We are so excited for KINGOFTHEHILL to join the FnA Records family and finally have the opportunity to give the fans a chance to hear these long-bootlegged albums – after all these years the way they were intended to be; and to revisit the vault and release unheard material”. This St. Louis, Missouri-based four-piece hard rock outfit began life on the local club circuit as a covers band – Initially known as Broken Toyz, the band gradually introduced original material into their set, until the demand for their own songs allowed them to drop the cover versions entirely. They signed a recording contract in 1990, and, having adopted the name KingOfTheHill, recorded their self-titled debut with Bang Tango producer Howard Benson. The album mixed party metal in the grand Van Halen style with funk influences, while also touching on AOR, with vocal harmonies that echoed Bon Jovi. The opening single, ‘I Do U’, as well as the second single “If I Say”, had major rotation on MTV and crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. With major backing from their record label the band spent much of 1991 on the road touring with White Lion, Trixter, Lynch Mob and Steelheart in the USA, and received a rapturous reception as Extreme’s guests on their autumn UK tour. This, the band’s first live work outside their own country, served to sharpen their performing abilities, with the charismatic Muriel becoming the visual focus of the band, drawing comparisons to both David Lee Roth and Prince, not least for his multiple costume changes throughout each show.

    • Yeah, can’t say it crossed my mind at any point of the exercise.

    • Sorry Karpet, I do that when I'm bored. It's just for fun. On facebook you can sometimes see comments like that. 
    • Van Halen-5150 is one of the last releases that comes to mind when thinking 1985-1995.
