Profile One band that deserves the “could have been huge” title is the Soho Roses. The British glam punk band was only around from 1987-1989, but they managed to secure themselves a strong glam and punk cult following that continues to this day. The four rockers, Paul, Andy, Joolz, and Pat, played all the major ‘80s London clubs and recorded one 7″and 12″ single, one 12″ EP, and one full-length LP on Trash Can Records of London.

The Soho Roses did it their way. Taking their cues from the New York Dolls and the Sex Pistols, the band brought their own punk-infused anthems and glam rock style to the fast-changing British scene. They were more punk and glam then metal, and that’s the way the band liked it. When the trendy LA Sunset Strip bands like Guns N’ Roses and Poison were unleashed upon the British scene, the Soho Roses remained faithful to their Sweet, New York Dolls, Buzzcocks, and Sex Pistols roots. The closing of the ‘80s saw times changing, and the band’s two year run ended as popular metal became the mainstream.
