Profile Trash Vegas formed in the early 90s and debuted witht the single “Legal High Blues / Rated X” released in 1990. Their debut album released in 1993 through Get Hip label contain fourteen tracks of uncompromising guitar based glam-rock a la early Guns ‘N Roses with a New York Dolls/Johnny Thunders twist from Pittsburgh. High powered rock ‘n’ roll that sounds close to the Faster Pussycat style having have this sweet American sound in the guitars, with good attitude but the songwriting though is average and not enough. The album includes an energetic workout of the Beatles’ epic “Everybody’s Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey.”
