Based in Los Angeles they won a coveted long-term deal with Columbia Rec-ords and issued a well-received debut album. It was a record that positioned them as a harder, more street-cred option to the majority of other bands playing around the Hollywood scene – somewhere between Guns N’ Roses and Skid Row. And with Jizzy Pearl they had one of the best frontmen in town.
They recorded second album ‘Wasted In America’, with a new producer, John Jansen, who had worked with a stellar list of hard rock acts, including Britny Fox, Bang Tango, Warrant and Faster Pussycat. It looked like a marriage made in heaven and to a degree it was. ‘Wasted In America’ is an electric and exciting record, produced with bluster and bravado, lending the band a monstrously dirty edge, helping to elevate their songs to another level.
The guitars cut through like chainsaws and Jizzy Pearl never sounded more in command. Songs such as ‘Miss America’, ‘Evil Twin’, ‘Happy Hour’ and the title track itself, made mincemeat of the competition. If you like your rock loud, dangerous and devilishly raw then look no further.
