The Dogs D'Amour

The music of the Dogs D'Amour can be described as a mixture of The Rolling Stones and Faces style roots rock and Hanoi Rocks style glam punk. Unlike popular bands of the time, who had misogynistic themes, the Dogs D'Amour relies more on romantic themes and poetic style lyrics. Tyla was also a huge fan of Charles Bukowski, and many of his lyrics, delivered with an impelling throaty rasp, were tinged with humorous irony and pathos, reflecting Bukowski's prosaic style.

The Pleasures

The Pleasures are a five-piece glamrock band from Hamburg, Germany, born of a love for all things outrageous and gender-transcending. It was experiencing Ziggy Stardust and Velvet Goldmine for the first time in 2000 that prompted Dancette (vocals) to start working on a side-project, as the band he was in at the time was not glitzy enough by far. In 2004 he joined forces with Lord Vivian (vocals & guitar), it became much more than a side-project, and the first few The Pleasures songs were born.

Babylon A.D.

Formed in Oakland California as the Persuaders, Derek Davis (vocals), Ron Freschi (guitar) Jamey Pacheco (drums) Danny De La Rosa (guitar) and Robb Reid (bass) were in childhood and rival bands until they eventually evolved into Babylon A.D (www.babylonad.com). Later as a band, they caught the attention of Arista Records president and industry music mogul Clive Davis who signed them at a showcase in Los Angeles thanks to their impressive three-song demo, home made video and consistent sold out performances in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Wizzard

There are two bands under this name. Wizzard was Roy Wood’s post-ELO project. They made catchy glam-rock hit singles like "Angel Fingers" and "See My Baby Jive" with a retro, Phil Spector-style "wall of sound" production. At the same time, they produced decidedly odd, almost avant-garde albums like Wizzard Brew. Wizzard were active from roughly 1972-1975. One of them is a 'blackened' heavy metal band from Finland.
