WILDSIDE picture
Wildside was an excellent band that burst onto the scene to late in the game to make any commercial break-through. The band played energetic melodic metal on their awesome debut album before trying too hard to fit in with the changing music scene. Formed in Los Angeles, California, the band was originally known as Young Gunns and consisted of Drew Hannah (vocals), Brent Woods (guitar), Benny Rhynedance (guitar), Marc Simon (bass) and Jimmy D. (drums). With a name change to Wildside, Capitol picked up the band in record time. Andy Johns co-produced the debut album that included singles such as "Hang On Lucy" and "Just Another Night." In also included a track co-written by Kiss's Paul Stanley, but with the grunge invasion in full force, the album sank without a trace. Three years later the self-titled follow-up album was released, which featured Bruce Draper handling all the guitar read more...

Another sensational band that came very late to the scene, unlucky to be shuffled out of business, thought they manage to try to ride the wave with the grungy sophomore release, no one actually gives a damn about it, but this particular debut, is widely regarded as one of the most underrated gem of glam's history.

Singer Drew Hannah reminds me of early Vince Neil with a slight Stephen Pearcy or even Axl Rose touch, and though he's retired from this business and focusing on the porn industry, he's remembered by the fans as the gifted kid with a superb voice. Dokken, Motley Crue, and Skid Row are probably the closest comparison of Wildside's music, and try cranking out "Hang On Lucy" as loud as you can, the youthful era of Crue's riffs are obvious on the arrangement, a truly magnificent track to open the album.

"Lad In Sin" is a sleaze beauty, "Hair of The Dog" is like a lost GNR track from the height of the 80s, "Heart-n-Soul" and "Clock Strikes" are brilliant midtempo tunes, "Kiss This Love Goodbye" is the best power ballad of the album, but the other songs such as "Just Another Night" and "Looks Like Love" are actually great as well. In fact, all the songs here are enjoyable but I must admit, couple or three songs are slightly weaker than the rest.

I remember hunting this disc down for several years with no luck, almost anything sold above what I can afford, but eventually the lucky day comes when I can snatch a Japanese copy for a reasonable price. Well, my point is if your lucky day arrives, don't hesitate, it really doesn't come everyday. Great and fun disc and highly recommended for fans of later-day glam metal!
