These sexy show ponies, originally from Sydney's Northern beaches hit the scene in 2003 and rightly re-introduced loud arrogant party rock into a lack lustre and piss poor excuse for a music scene in Australia. Characterised by high gain and fast blues based grooves these boys ooze style, even if their lead guitarist Mo could easily be mistaken for a midget. do yaself a favour and check em out http://www.hellcityglamours.com/
One of the best hard rock bands ever. Nobody quite knew what to think of longhaired, tattooed bikers singing such soulful, yet ballsy, rock music. While their image may have been at odds with their music, it definitely suited the live show.
Formed in Los Angeles, California by Ron Young (the vocalist whose back is completely covered by a jungle scene tattoo), Apache (guitar), Louren Molinare (guitar), Fidel Paniagua (bass) and Tom Morris (drums). They first appeared on Metal Blade's Street Survivors compilation before releasing a four song EP called Name Your Poison.
For French glam/hard-rock band, see Blackrain. There are at least eight bands with the name Black Rain:
1) Black Rain, the NYC post punk / industrial group began in '89 with Stuart Argabright, Bones, Shin Shimokawa , Thom Furtado and Dave Vulcan, emerging out of the ruins of seminal post-punk outfit Ike Yard. After playing CBGB's, The Bank, Tompkins Square Park show commemorating the Riots there and the last GG Allin show at the Gas Station on LES ( Lungcast cassette ), this phase of the group went on to work in the Studio with Roy Mayorga (Thorn / StoneSour ) on drums and guitar riffage.
Enuff Z'Nuff is a power pop/hard rock band which was formed in 1984 in Blue Island, Illinois, United States by Chip Z'Nuff (bass) and Donnie Vie (vocals). The band has released twelve studio albums as of 2011 and is best known for their singles "Fly High Michelle", "New Thing" and "Mother's Eyes". Despite becoming popular during the glam metal movement of the 1980's, the band has little in common with such artists and has continued to record and tour since their formation.
PISTOL KIXX are a frantic fusion of sleaze, blues, punk and classic rock!. Their sound brings together influences from old skool punk through 80’s glam and sleaze and even blues and classic rock. They combine the no nonsense rock n roll approach of punk and garage rock with the fire and the flash of the 80’s sleaze and hair bands they grew up loving. The Pistol Kixx idea was formed in March 2006 in the whisky and drug addled mind of singer Carli Hart. The band went through a few line-ups with Carli and Sober Dave on bass and then rhythm guitar being the only constant members.
