Blackboard Jungle - Sound Of Our Lives

Blackboard Jungle – Sound Of Our Lives

Hailing from Los Angeles, California, Blackboard Jungle were among those fallen heroes trying to emerge during the grunge boom.

In 1992, the band recorded an independent album called “I Like It Alot” which was well-received but failed to garner much industry buzz. During this time they played several dates supporting Faster Pussycat in the United States. The band also played a few international dates, including a performance in Japan which was later circulated on bootleg videotapes.

In 1994, Good Day L.A., a local morning show on the Los Angeles Fox Broadcasting television affiliate, held a competition to determine the “best local unsigned band.” Blackboard Jungle entered and would eventually win the contest and its grand prize: a recording deal. Unfortunately for the band, the deal was with Fox Records, which essentially existed to release soundtrack albums from 20th-Century Fox motion pictures. Blackboard Jungle did not release any recordings under the Fox label.

Midnite City - Summer Of Our Lives

Midnite City – Summer Of Our Lives

MIDNITE CITY were formed in January 2017 by current Tigertailz front-man (and former Vega, Steevi Jaimz and Teenage Casket Company member and songwriter) Rob Wylde.

Armed with an album’s worth of material written under the working title of MIDNITE CITY, Wylde approached friend Pete Newdeck (Newman/ Eden’s Curse, Blood Red Saints) to produce three songs for him to shop to record labels.

Wylde sang, played guitar and bass on the recordings whilst Newdeck played drums, provided backing vocals and took care of the production. Wylde also brought in newcomer guitarist Miles Meakin who played guitar solos on the recordings and former band mate James Martin (Vega) who laid down keyboards on the tracks. After being mixed by Newdeck, the songs were sent to Harry Hess (Harem Scarem) who mastered them at his studio in Canada.

The songs ‘Nothing’s Like Losing You’, ‘Summer Of Our Lives’ and ‘Think About You’ were then sent out to labels and garnered considerable interest across the board, resulting in a deal being inked with German label AOR Heaven.

With a record deal in place, Newdeck officially joined the band as drummer in the Spring of 2017, alongside Miles Meakin on guitar and Shawn Charvette on keyboards.With the line up now in place, the band began work on their debut album at PNP Productions in Tewkesbury UK, completing the recordings in June 2017.

With a sound that the band describes as ‘Timeless, melodic rock/ hair metal’, MIDNITE CITY cover all bases when it comes to this much loved genre of music. From ultimate feel good, party rock anthems, to brooding melodic rock monsters, to spine tingling power ballads, they are all here in abundance, and then some.
