专辑介绍:


Even amidst the already seedy underbelly of the late-'80s L.A. glam metal scene, L.A. Guns were the undisputed bottom-feeders. A ragged collection of outcasts from various other bands (guitarist Tracii Guns was the original "guns" in Guns n' Roses, drummer Steven Riley had recently vacated the stool with shock-kings W.A.S.P., and British vocalist Phil Lewis had done time with London glamsters Girl), they elevated the unrepentant sleaziness and undeniable tackiness of their environment to a new VD-encrusted low. The union of such an unsavory cast of characters could only result in a wildly over-the-top rock & roll album, and while it may not have been as successful as their latest efforts, this eponymous debut rocked with a bile and fury not seen since Mötley Crüe's Shout at the Devil. Sh*t-kicking anthems like "No Mercy," "Sex Action," "One More Reason," and the marvelous "Bitch Is Back" slap the listener silly while still making room for slightly more commercial but equally hot offerings such as "Electric Gypsy" and "Down in the City." And despite clashing terribly with its surroundings, "One Way Ticket" is a surprisingly effective power ballad. Fun, fun, fun.

乐队介绍:

L.A. Guns was formed by former Guns N' Roses guitarist Tracii Guns in 1987. Teaming with ex-Girl vocalist Phil Lewis, former W.A.S.P. drummer Steve Riley, bassist Kelly Nickles, and guitarist Mick Cripps, Guns adhered to the Aerosmith-derived raunch of his former band. L.A. Guns released their self-titled first album in 1988, yet it wasn't until the following year's Cocked and Loaded that they truly broke big. On the strength of the hit single "The Ballad of Jayne," Cocked and Loaded went gold. Released two years later, Hollywood Vampires managed to hold their audience's attention, peaking at number 42. Nevertheless, the band laid low for four years, waiting for grunge to fade away. When L.A. Guns released their fourth album, Vicious Circle, in early 1995, they retained a core group of followers, yet it failed to capture the mainstream's attention; it was their weakest-selling album to date and saw the beginning of several lineup shifts, with Johnny Crypt taking over bass playing duties and Guns remaining the band's sole guitarist. Featuring new lead vocalist Chris Van Dahl, 1996's American Hardcore fared no better; Greatest Hits & Black Beauties, a collection of re-recorded favorites and new material, followed in 1999 after a succession of new vocalists that included Ralph Saenz (on 1998's Wasted EP) and Love/Hate singer Jizzy Pearl. That same summer, the group released a Gilby Clarke-produced collection of new material, entitled Shrinking Violet, with Pearl as lead vocalist. For 2001's Man in the Moon (again produced by Clarke), Phil Lewis and Mick Cripps returned to the lineup, joining Guns, Riley, former Pretty Boy Floyd member Keff Ratcliffe and new bassist Muddy.

流行金属时代一面旗——L.A. Guns(洛杉矶之枪):

Guns N'Roses中的Guns究竟是谁?Guns N' Roses和L.A. Guns有什么关系吗?答案是:Guns指的是Slash的前任,后来L.A. Guns的灵魂人物Tracii Guns。现在看来,Guns过早的离开枪花似乎有点不理智,Guns在离开枪花后组建了洛杉矶的枪,并最终使它成为八十年代末最著名的流行重金属乐队之一。洛杉矶之枪成立得比较晚,在此之前Bon Jovi、Great White、White Snake、Def Leppard、Scorpions早已火得差不多了,加上九十年代另类摇滚的走红和重金属(尤其是流行重金属)的不景气,洛杉矶之枪仅仅在八十年代最后两年给人留下了些印象。他们的音乐倾向于早期Aerosmith式的硬摇滚,流行的感觉较Kiss、Poison而言相差较远。Guns虽然一直是乐队的核心人物,但其它成员的频繁更换(几乎一张专辑一个阵容)使乐队一直缺少稳定性和号召力。

“滥大街的重金属”——L.A. GUNS(落杉矶枪炮):

GUNS N' ROSES之所以叫这个名字,是因为他们最初的阵容里除了Axl Rose外,还有一个吉他手叫做Tracii Guns。不过由于二人意见不和,在G'n'R正式发表专辑前,Tracii Guns就被开除了,此人不甘示弱,便在1987年自己组建了L.A. GUNS乐队(由此可见,关于L.A. GUNS是G'n'R前身的说法乃是误传)。乐队最初的成员包括了来自前GIRL乐队的主唱Phil Lewis,来自W.A.S.P.的鼓手Steve Riley,以及贝司手Kelly Nickles和吉他手Mick Cripps。这个新乐队决定和GUNS N' ROSES进行抗衡,和G'n'R或多或少受朋克影响不同的是,L.A. GUNS的风格主要来自70年代的流行金属和硬摇滚,诸如AEROSMITH、CHEAP TRICK、QUIET RIOT等。

1988年,乐队发表了首张专辑L.A. Guns(落杉矶之枪),不过除了在落杉矶本地外,并没有引起大家的关注。但是他们的第二张专辑Cocked And Loaded(大意是指做爱已进入状态)却取得了巨大的成功,这是一种典型的“流氓摇滚”,充满“爱与性”的歌词和主唱懒洋洋的声线显得很搭配,吉他手多变的节奏也并不象一般金属乐队那样注重riff的表现,有点象CINDERELLA的感觉,不过感觉更时髦一些。这张专辑凭借其中的一首民谣The Ballad Of Jayne获得了金唱片,虽然还算不上一流乐队,但毕竟也冲破落杉矶,走向全美国了。

1991年,乐队的第三张专辑Hollywood Vampires(好莱坞吸血鬼)也取得了同样的成功,而且这次乐队似乎想要显得深沉点了,略带批判性质的专辑名讽刺了那些榨取艺人劳动成果的好莱坞经纪人。专辑同样有着不错的销量,而且还在排行榜上获得了第42名的好成绩。

好景不长,90年代初的Grunge潮流将L.A. GUNS这样的二流重金属乐队打入了地狱,他们突然发现已经没有唱片公司愿意和自己签约了。直到1995年,Grunge的辉煌开始散去的时候,他们才终于得到了一份合同并迅速发表了第四张专辑Vicious Circle(邪恶之圈)。幸运的是,他们独特的音乐风格使得他们到现在仍然拥有一批忠实的歌迷。
  
由于没有能够引起主流媒体的关注,专辑的销量非常糟糕,乐队成员也开始出现分歧。乐队阵容发生了变化,贝司手变成了Johnny Crypt,主唱变成了Chris Van Dahl,而Tracii Guns成了唯一的吉他手。这个新阵容在音乐风格上并没有太大变化,他们在1996年发行的新专辑American Hardcore(美国硬核)同样没能取得可喜的成绩。
  
在精选专辑Greatest Hits & Black Beauties(精选和黑美人)之后,乐队的主唱频频更换,首先是在98年的EP Wasted(废弃)中,主唱成了Ralph Saenz,而在最新专辑Shrinking Violet(凋谢的紫罗兰)中主唱又成了前LOVE/HATE乐队的Jizzy Pearl。这张新专辑发行后不久,他们赶上了重金属全面复兴的好时候,和RATT、POISON、DOKKEN、GREAT WHITE一样,L.A. GUNS也得到足够的资助可以进行较大规模的巡演了。对那些仍然热中于80年代长发金属/流行金属/华丽金属的歌迷来说,这真是一个好消息。
