A little ways back at ‘Destroyer of Harmony’s’ site. Peter posted a review on this old past its due date band called “Wildside” which he reacquainted himself with a listen and jotted down some words on them sounding generic but in a good way….
Anyhoo…. In the comments we had a little discussion about other bands kinda ripping off another bands deal…
Here’s the ‘comments’ check it out..
I think I read about these guys(Wildside) in Metal Edge magazine back in 1992 maybe before that. There were so many bands coming out it was ridiculous! Haha..
Course in 92 was a shift in the musical climate as well!
Cool that you reacquainted yourself with Wildside…
Take a walk on the Wildside! haha
To be honest the reason why I picked the band cassette was because of the nod to a Motley Crue song. And I was surprised.
But you are right, so many bands coming out with the same sound and the same lyrical themes.
Roxy Blue comes to mind. They had a Geffen deal and I remember seeing their album advertised on the same flyer with Nirvana, Galactic Cowboys and Sonic Youth.
Yup Roxy Blue man they kinda bugged me with the whole Halen look…I kind of got tired of these knock off Halen type bands…
Having said that the first Bulletboys album I dug the second not so much and third I didn’t bother with…haha
Hows that for a review?
Brilliant review on Bullet Boys and I don’t dispute it all because it’s spot on.
hahaha..thanks..I may do post on this actual conversation at some point!
