Rating 72/100

Band Members Michael St. Germain – Vocals, Al Schweich – Guitars,backing vocals, Bones – Bass,backing vocals, Rig Valentin – Drums,backing vocals

Tracks 01. Bad Sister, 02. Summertime, 03. Lullaby, 04. Southern Comfort, 05. Freedom, 06. Hall Of Shame,07. So High, 08. Goodbye, 09. Cyanide Kick

Profile This band was based in Hollywood and recorded this 9 song demo before disbanded. These guys looks very glam, but are more a Hard rock sounded band. A band that never had a proper album to begin with. Unfortunately the poor production (demo) basically kills this collection and to be honest the band offered nothing new or more of the same that some other bands did at that stage. Lovers of the obscure will probably want it just for that.

Jokers Wild – 8 Ball [1994]

Country United Kingdom

Style Hard Rock/Metal

Rating 78/100

Band Members Jontatham – Vocals, Wiggy – Guitars, Ian – Bass, Martin Shepherd – Drums

Tracks 01. 8 Ball Rollin’, 02. Loco Diablo, 03. Doing Time, 04. Brave!

Profile Jest Records indie release from Jokers Wild with their mega rare release entitled “8 Ball”. It is a stunning, impossible to find hair metal indie from England that features late 80s Sunset Strip style. In your face vocals with gang styled choruses and absolutely stunning guitar work. The 4 tracks on this mini album are perfectly executed – these guys should have been huge in the 80s. The track “Doing Time” is a hard rocking anthem, while “Brave” and “8 Ball Rollin'” are hair metal at it’s best. Fans of KK WILDE and Taz would go nuts over this gem. This is a highly sought out album by collectors.
