BulletBoys: Behind the Orange Curtain (Reissue)

If anyone (anyone?) is clamoring for a live BulletBoys album, circa the early years of this milliennium, just take a peek Behind the Orange Curtain. There, you'll find late-Eighties Sunset Strip sleaze metal ("Hard As A Rock"), post-Nineties grunge metal ("Walls"), a lame stab at reggae metal ("Shake Me Awake") and an O'Jays' cover ("For the Love of Money"). The band that formed out of the ashes of King Kobra in the Eighties reaped the success that came from working with Van Halen producer Ted Templeman early on before getting swallowed and spit back out by the flannel-shirted movement.

Recorded probably sometime between the release of 2000's Greatest Hits: Burning Cats and Amputees and 2003's Sophie (the liner notes don't list an actual date), the dozen live songs on this limited-edition digipak reissue span the band's entire career and were performed at The Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana, Calif., with only one original BulletBoy: vocalist Marq Torien. But his strained vocal performance on the band's best-known song, "Smooth Up In Ya," left him sounding winded as if he'd rather now just cuddle up next to ya.

1) Hards As A Rock
2) Hell on My Heels
