SHARK ISLAND picture
Shark Island was one of the most popular club bands in Los Angeles during the 80's metal explosion. They dubbed themselves the "the longest running successful rock show in L.A.", but they were never able to break wide open. They began as the Sharks as early as 1979 when high school friends Richard Black (considered to be the man from whom Guns N' Roses' front man Axl Rose stole most of his stage moves!) and Spencer Sercombe joined forces. The lineup for the Sharks changed regularly, with vocalist Black and guitarist Sercombe being the only staples. The Sharks released an independent album called Altar Ego in 1982. By 1985 the Sharks had developed into Shark Island with a line-up of Michael Guy (guitar), Tom Rucci (bass) and Walt Woodward (drums). The band released an album of demos independently before being signed to Epic records. read more...

SHARK ISLAND Law Of The Order

Album · 1989 · Glam Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Stephen
Gazzarri's was a popular nightclub in Sunset Strip (demolished in 1995 and replaced by Key Club) which was a home to many big names such as The Doors, Van Halen, Motley Crue, long before they being discovered, and Shark Island was one of the home band in the 80s that's been highly praised for their energetic and bombastic live performances. Richard Black, the lead singer, was the trump card of the band, the champion that's responsible for introducing the seductive snake dance and tight bike pants (which later being copied by Axl Rose) and has a large range of vocal capability.

If only this album came out earlier, Shark Island could've been big in LA, but fate wasn't on their side, not only that they failed commercially, but Richard Black's name fade away like an ash in the sand. But one thing for sure, "Law of The Order" was immortalized by many glam freaks as one of the fantastic album in 1989, unleashing excellent tracks from "Paris Calling" to the spectacular "Shake For Me", from the emotional ballad of "Why Should I Believe" to the mid-tempo "Bad For Each Other".

A tremendous unnoticed album of the 80s, two thumbs up!
