Nasty Idols – Boys Town
Armed with scarfs, make-up, hairspray, bleached and black hair with influences of Kiss, Sweet, New York Dolls and Alice Cooper Nasty Idols was formed in Malmoe, Sweden in the summer of 1987 by vocalist Andy Pierce and bassist Dick Qwarfort.
1988 they released their first single Don’t Walk From Love. They got signed and started to record the debut album. With the release of Gigolos On Parole, 1989 the band started to earn the reputation of being one of the hottest new rock acts in Scandinavia. With good looks and gutsy singalong glam/metal anthems the band achieved lots of publicity - mostly for their on and off stage antics, all in the fast lane; sex, drugs and rock n’ roll.
Their second album Cruel Intention turned out to be a lucky strike for the band. The album was recorded 1990 in between gigs and tours just as the L.A way of sleaze/glamrock was at its peak. With the release of Cruel Intention, 1991 they became an icon in the genre, the number one sleazerock band from Scandinavia. The music videos for Cool Way Of Living, Can’t Get Ya’ Off My Mind and Trashed N’ Dirty was on heavy rotation on MTV Headbangers Ball and other territories - U.S, UK, Germany and Japan began to show interest in the band.
Nasty Idols approached a harder type of sleazerock on their third album. Other bands in the genre was giving in because of the grunge hype and lost of popularity. Nasty Idols carried on with their rock n’ roll crusade and released Vicious in October, 1993 in Europe and Japan. The album spawned two music videos; Heads Down In Tinseltown and Ain’t Got Nothing. Nasty idols decided to split up around 1995 just as the recording of the fourth album Heroes For Sale was completed.
The years after the break-up of Nasty Idols their four original albums including two Best Of has been reissued several times with U.S and Worldwide sales. Nasty Idols was re-united 2006 and did the Rejects On The Road Tour with gigs in Scandinavia, Italy and U.K.
2008 the band entered the studio to record what’s gonna be their fifth album. The album with the title Boys Town will be released in early 2009.
