The Rumours are a chick fronted rock band based out of Waterloo, IA. Talk about a bad to the bone crüe straight out of the sleazy pits of Rock N Roll Hell. Although it’s clear it’s clear this band sold their souls to Rock N Roll, they often flirt with Glamish-Punk, and even Blues ideas. The Rumours and their feisty attitudes are gonna rip your heart out and leave you beggin’ for more.
There you have it folks! What did you think?
…And that was your Hear ’N Tell!
OK, Mixtapers! Like I mentioned at the top of the show. Spring is in the air and I am getting fired up! Fire it up! Fire it Up!
Things begin to thaw, temps go up in the middle of the day and then you feel the electricity in the air. You know, spring is like jump starting summer. Spring is that station wagon that Mrs. LaRusso has Daniel and Ally help her start by pushing it until you get it rolling good and then someone in the car releases the clutch whilst having it in first gear and then that starts the engine like it was a giant crank start from the olden days. So yeah, spring is trying to jump start summer so there is this electricity in the air, an angst, especially since being cooped up all winter for obvious reasons AND a global pandemic. So all in all, I would say we are all gonna tear it loose soon and become Live Wires!
So here’s The Crue with the OG classic “Live Wire” from 1981’s, really 1982 LP ’Too Fast For Love’ right here on today’s “Fire It Up” Hair Metal Mixtape
That was Santa Cruz, CA rockers Dirty Penny and their single “Midnight Ride” from their 2007 debut album ’Take It Sleezy’ to wrap up today’s Hair Metal Mixtape!
Dirty Penny formed in Santa Cruz, California. They gained popularity by winning a “Battle of the Bands” run by jpotmusic.com. Their music has been described as “glittery-glam”, “sex-fueled”, and “leather-encased”. It is reminiscent of 1980s glam metal made popular by Mötley Crüe, Poison, Guns N’ Roses, RATT, and Skid Row.
Dirty Penny was originally a Poison cover band, ironically called Antidote. They later had to drop Antidote due to a Dutch band of the same name. Dirty Penny has since played at all three Rocklahoma Festivals.
Bassist Tyno Vincent said this about the band: “We were into old-school punk, like The Misfits, when we first got into music, then got into glam as a fuck-you to our hometown…But punk’s got a lot of rules, and that’s not very punk. Rock’n’roll doesn’t have any rules — everybody can do drugs or not do drugs or dress however they want. A lot of people are tired of the screamo/I’m-not-okay thing. It’s like, everyone’s not okay, you know? Forget about it. Have fun. That’s what you do with music — you forget about your shit.”
“Antidote was like our training wheels when we were learning how to play, but I consider the start of our band as being when we became Dirty Penny and recorded our album…There are a lot of haters…We’re labeled a cover band in Santa Cruz and that’ll probably never change, but it’s cool to go out and experience respect for what we’re doing now from older metal bands.”
Dirty Penny’s debut album was Take it Sleezy, released on August 2, 2007. Young & Reckless was issued on September 17, 2009. For this album, Dirty Penny altered their look from their original “glittery-glam” to a more modern, less-showy getup. Fans tend to argue their music has not changed, despite their outward appearance.
