Cats In Boots - Her Monkey

Cats In Boots – Her Monkey

Cats In Boots - Her Monkey

Short-lived Japanese-American Hair Metal group consisted of guitarist Takashi ‘Jam’ Ohashi and bass player Yasuhiro ‘Butch’ Hatae, both ex members of Seiki Matsu. The American members were vocalist Joel Ellis and drummer Randy Meers who were known as being members of the Los Angeles-based band Merry Hoax. Cats In Boots relocated to Tokyo and after hitting a #1 on the Japanese indie charts they got signed to EMI Records. “Kicked And Klawed” was their official debut and a huge success in Japan, reaching #3 on the local charts. However, despite great reviews and considerable MTV airplay, album sales were only moderate elsewhere and the band folded after a while.

Saraya – Back To The Bullet

Official video from their self-titled debut on PolyGram Records in 1989. Fronted by singer Sandi Saraya, the band also consisded of former Danger Danger guitarist Tony “Bruno” Rey. Although the band had gained a fairly good exposure (much to Sandi’s sex appeal) and got some Billboard chart positions, they folded in 1992. Saraya left us a legacy two great albums that all Hair Metal fans should give them a try!

Silent Rage - Rebel With A Cause

Silent Rage – Rebel With A Cause

Silent Rage - Rebel With A Cause

Formed in 1985 in Los Angeles, and debuted in the same year by appearing in the Pure Rock compilation with the song “Make It Or Break It”. With this track, the band was noted by Chameleon Records with which signed a recording contract shortly after. Their debut album came in 1987 with the album Shattered Hearts, produced by the renowned Paul Sabu, who also contributed to the composition of some songs.

After the moderate success of the debut, the group came to the attention of Kiss frontman Gene Simmons, who convinced them to sign a contract to his label, Simmons Records (distributed by RCA) in August 1988.

The second album, “Don’t Touch Me There” released in 1989 was produced, on the advice of Simmons, again by Paul Sabu. This is because Simmons had appreciated the formula worked on the debut that he had produced. Pat Regan and Mikey Davis also participated in the production of the album.

“Don’t Touch Me There” was a great success, and this was extracted from the hit “Rebel With A Cause”, broadcasted well enough by MTV. In addition, the album reached number one in a few European charts. After the RCA broke agreements with Simmons Records, Silent Rage broke up for a period, and their members undertook other projects.

Signal - Does It Feel Like Love

Signal – Does It Feel Like Love

Signal - Does It Feel Like Love

After leaving King Kobra, and prior to forming Unruly Child, vocalist Mark Free was involved in the California band Signal, whose sound was the perfect blend of classic AOR artists like Journey and Survivor and newer Hair acts Bad English and Damn Yankees.

Signal’s 1989 debut Loud & Clear is an album that, given the musical climate in the late 80’s, really should have sold about a billion copies. Think of the really huge acts at that time – Bon Jovi, Bad English, Damn Yankees, and Bad Company – and the albums they were releasing. Loud & Clear is as good if not better than all of them, but sadly failed to gain the attention it deserved. This is just a classy arena rock album with melodies to die for, just enough keyboards, an amazing vocal performance, and the kind of memorable songs that would have fit on just about any 80’s movie soundtrack. “Does It Feel Like Love” should have been played every hour of every day on Top 40 radio in 1989, and “Could This Be Love” and “Run Into the Night” would have made great singles as well.

If you’re a fan of 80’s Hair Metal/AOR/melodic rock, “Loud & Clear” is a must-have album. Fans of Free’s work in King Kobra and Unruly Child will probably get the most out of this album, but it really should appeal to any child of the 80’s.

French reissue label Axe Killer reissued “Loud & Clear” in 2000. The reissue featured digitally remastered sound and expanded liner notes. “Loud & Clear” was reissued yet again in 2009, this time by Krescendo.

‘Hungry’ is a single from Winger’s debut studio album released in 1989. The song charted at No. 85 in the US. The B-side was “Time To Surrender”, taken from the same album. The above music video deals with a man falling into a depression after his girlfriend died in a car crash that resulted in an explosion. In the beginning of the music video, before the car crashes, the song ‘Headed for a Heartbreak’ can be heard playing on the radio.

Fifth Angel - Time Will Tell

Official video from the same-titled album “Time Will Tell” released in 1989 by Epic. This is a highly recommended album full of melodic and progressive music, catchy choruses and amazing guitar work. Something between Queensryche and Pink Cream 69. A must-have!

Cry Wolf - West Wind Blows

Cry Wolf – West Wind Blows

Cry Wolf - West Wind Blows

‘West Wind Blows’ was a massive hit in Japan. It is the opening track of the CD titled ‘Cry Wolf’ which was released only in Japan in 1989

Originally named Heroes, Cry Wolf was formed in the San Francisco East Bay Area with Tim Hall (vocals), Steve McKnight (guitar), Phil Deckard (bass), John Freixas (drums) and JC Crampton (Keyboards) in the mid-1980s.

In 1986, the band moved to Los Angeles and started working the Hollywood club circuit, soon thereafter recruiting Hall’s friend Paul Cancilla on drums. Soon after, keyboardist JC Crampton left the band, and they were forced to change the band’s name. A contest was held in the local BAM Magazine, with the person(s) coming up with the winning name winning Mötley Crüe/Whitesnake concert tickets. The name “Cry Wolf” was chosen out of hundreds of entries.

Looking to set themselves apart from the thousands of other bands flooding into Los Angeles in the late ‘80s, the band gave away their four-song demo to anyone willing to sign their mailing list. Soon, however, the demo was garnering international attention. Kelv Hellrazer (“Metal Forces” magazine) described the four song demo the best he’d ever heard, and further stated “I know it’s all been said before but I kid you not. Cry Wolf almost defy description. The legend begins here!”. Billboard magazine even recognized Cry Wolf as “One of the top five unsigned bands in the world” (The only other American band being the then unknown Pantera).

The success of the demo, along with their growing reputation as one of most energetic and powerful live bands playing in Los Angeles, Cry Wolf was given the unprecedented invitation to tour Japan in February 1989 as an “unsigned” band (releasing their original demo as a limited-edition “Red Vinyl” EP via Monster Records). This was short-lived, however, as the band was promptly offered a recording contract from Epic/Sony on the night of their first show of their tour, which by then had completely sold out.

In September 1989, the band returned to Japan for a month-long sold-out tour to support their critically acclaimed self-titled debut on Epic/Sony, which featured the Beatles song “I Am The Walrus” and the immensely popular “West Wind Blows”, a hit video on MTV Japan.
