Bio:

Tesla is an American rock band formed in Sacramento, California in late 1982. They have sold 14 million albums in the United States.In late 1982, bassist Brian Wheat (age 20) and guitarist Frank Hannon (age 15) formed City Kidd, a band that then spent time gigging at Sacramento's defunct Oasis Ballroom.They also began working with American rock guitarist Ronnie Montrose towards writing hard rock hit singles, reasoning "We wanted to get signed, and we thought the way to do that was to write a hit single."New producers and managers turned the group towards radio pop rock and, to come up with the appropriate material, band manager Steve Clausman hired Grammy award winner Duane Hitchings, who provided the music to Rod Stewart songs such as "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" and "Infatuation". A representative from Geffen Records then saw where the City Kidd band was headed and let them know that he would only sign them if they "from the gut and not from formulas."By 1986, the band had again changed its direction under a new name, Tesla.The band City Kidd was renamed Tesla during the recording of their first album, 1986's Mechanical Resonance, on the advice of their manager that City Kidd was not a great name (in addition, there was already another band going by that name). The band derived their name, certain album and song titles, and some song content from events relating to inventor and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla. Along with the band's next two studio albums, Mechanical Resonance was produced by Michael Barbiero and Steve Thompson.The band's original lineup consisted of lead vocalist Jeff Keith, guitarists Frank Hannon and Tommy Skeoch, bassist Brian Wheat, and drummer Troy Luccketta.Tesla's music is often referred to as hard rock or hair metal. The band's lyrics also strayed from the themes popular in hard rock, particularly in the 1980s at the beginning of their career. In the early days of their career, Tesla toured with David Lee Roth, Alice Cooper, Def Leppard, and Poison which resulted in the band being categorized as a glam metal band. The band's members resented this labelling. The band was booed off the stage while opening for Def Leppard at Calgary, which was unfair as they were playing well, but were then hardly known and the crowd wanted the main act.It was three years before the band released their second album, The Great Radio Controversy. The album helped solidify the band's growing reputation and fan base. The album produced the hit single, a classic '80s power ballad "Love Song".In 1990, Tesla released Five Man Acoustical Jam, a live album featuring acoustic renditions of hits such as "Comin' Atcha Live", "Gettin' Better", "Modern Day Cowboy", and "Love Song". The album also featured a number of covers most notably a version of "Signs", a 1971 hit by the Five Man Electrical Band.In 1991 the band released their third studio album Psychotic Supper. The band itself considers this to be their best album according to their official web site.The 1998 Japanese reissue import of Psychotic Supper contains three previously unreleased songs, including "Rock the Nation", "I Ain't Superstitious", and "Run Run Run".In 1994 the band released their fourth studio album Bust a Nut. The 1998 Japanese reissue import of Bust a Nut contains the previously unreleased cover of Led Zeppelin's "The Ocean".After the release of Bust a Nut, Skeoch departed because of his struggle with substance abuse. He rejoined after completing rehab, only to depart again months later. The band moved forward as a four piece for a short while. However, it wasn't long before Skeoch briefly joined up with solo artist Marshall Coleman's band to support his solo career, only to see a departure of Marshall soon after. This band eventually morphed to include Jeff Keith and resurfaced as Bar 7 with a single "Four Leaf Clover", from the album The World Is a Freak. Brian Wheat formed Soulmotor and Frank Hannon Moon Dog Mane, while Troy Luccketta worked with several local artists including the Bay Area's One Thin Dime.After a break of six years, the Sacramento Bee reported that the band had reformed in 2000 with the help of local radio personality Pat Martin of KRXQ. The band played an emotional sold out show at Arco Arena in Sacramento on October 25, 2000. Soon after they recorded the double live album Replugged Live. In 2002 they were featured in the Rock Never Stops Tour alongside other 1980s rock bands.2002 saw the release of a further live album Standing Room Only which is just a single CD version of Replugged Live.In 2004 they released their fifth studio album Into the Now which debuted on the Billboard album chart at number 30. The album was well received by fans and the band was featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.In February 2005, Tesla headlined a benefit show at the PPAC in Providence, Rhode Island for the victims of the Station nightclub fire. During the show the band auctioned off an autographed acoustic guitar with the proceeds going to the Station Family Fund. 100% of the ticket sales also went to this charity.In the summer of 2006, the band embarked on the Electric Summer Jam Tour without guitarist Tommy Skeoch. Skeoch had left the band indefinitely to spend time with his family, and, as he later revealed on "The Classic Metal Show," other reasons; particularly his problems with substance abuse.[4][5] Dave Rude replaced Skeoch on the tour and has remained with the band ever since."Cumin' Atcha Live" appeared in the 2002 video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.Tesla recorded a two-volume collection of cover songs titled Real to Reel, which was released on June 5, 2007. The recording is available as a 2-CD set. The first CD (containing 13 songs) is sold in a case with a blank slot for the second CD. The second CD (containing 12 additional songs) will initially be available to concert goers in the USA at no additional charge beyond the cost of a ticket. The second CD was also given away with the August edition of Classic Rock magazine in Europe.At the end of August Tesla announced their first world tour in 16 years with dates in Australia, Japan, and Europe in October and November 2007.In February 2008, Tesla helped fund and headlined a benefit concert for victims of the Station nightclub fire. The show was broadcast by VH1 Classic. Tesla played three songs: "What You Give", "Signs", and "Love Song", though "What You Give" did not make it onto the broadcast.In June and July 2008, Tesla played a few shows in Europe and the USA, including Sweden Rock Festival, Graspop Metal Meeting and Rocklahoma.

Album:

French reissue label Bad Reputation has been doing a great job releasing 'Collector Series / Remastered with Bonus', with the main attraction being, on most releases, the addition of a bonus disc, making these reissues the 'definitive expanded versions'. In a Rock Candy Records fashion, these are official remasters in arrangement with the original recording companies.In the case of TESLA's "Psychotic Supper" (for many, their finest moment), we have the main album remastered plus an extra CD with hard to find songs.When the Sacramento-based band delivered its third album, which was released in August 1991, it came out under the title "Psychotic Supper", a banner that Hannon says is very appropriate for the state of the band at that point. But it was also an appropriate callback to their namesake.“We were psycho, man," Hannon recalls. "We were going crazy. We were in New York, we were living in Manhattan, going out to the clubs, meeting new people, hanging out with punk rockers, smoking crack, running around down in the village, you know, just being crazy.And then tying it into Tesla, Nikola Tesla had his own psychosis regarding eating food and he didn’t like certain things on his plate, he had to arrange his dinnerware and his silverware in certain ways in order to eat."So I thought it was kind of a fun, clever little title that kind of reminded me of like something that Aerosmith would do. Aerosmith was one of my favorite bands, and you know, 'Toys in the Attic', 'Rats in the Cellar,' the titles that they used, I thought Psychotic Supper had that vibe.”After two successful albums and the huge success of Five Man Acoustical Jam, Hannon says that they hit the studio with a lot of confidence and egos blazing.“We were a little older and we had progressed in our attitude," he recalls. "We were more confident -- we were definitely overly confident and definitely at that point, we had reached the point of saying f--- you to everybody."Psychotic Supper" was definitely our f--- you album, to the industry and to the people that were controlling us. Like I said, that ultimately bit us in the ass, because we self-destructed and then when we tried to make a comeback, it’s taken us until now to finally f---ing be able to do it.”For Tesla, part of that rebellion found them digging through a good amount of material that they had wanted to include on The Great Radio Controversy that had been rejected.“A lot of the songs were outtakes and stuff that didn’t end up on our second record," Hannon says. "We were rebellious and we said, ‘We’re doing those f---ing songs -- we don’t care what anybody thinks.Like, a song like ‘Change in the Weather,’ the first track, we had that song down. I mean, we loved that song. They didn’t let us put it on The Great Radio Controversy, so we knew we were putting that song on the record -- we were fighting for it."Tesla, once referred to as the “thinking man’s Van Halen,” definitely used their musical canvas again on "Psychotic Supper" to put some thoughts out there, with songs that delved into a number of topics, including what had been happening with Operation Desert Storm.'What You Give’ and ‘Freedom Slaves’ and songs like that had more depth to them and reality than just your regular party anthems.'Edison’s Medicine' driven by the twin guitar attack of Hannon and guitarist Tommy Skeoch, is one of a number of full-throttle rockers that you'll find on "Psychotic Supper" that represented the group’s attempt “to expose a lot of the fraud and stuff that was going on.”'Call It What You Want' is one of the most striking songs with the moody and melodic intro morphing into an exciting, upbeat theme with dynamic vocals and sonically pleasing guitar accents.'Don’t De-rock Me' is a blazing tune that talks about what people want to hear. 'No time for f@cking around with mediocrity, takes everything I’ve got just trying to be me.' It’s surely not a classic, but it’s balls out rock.Slowing it down is 'Song & Emotion', written for ‘Steamin’ Steve Clark — R.I.P. — guitarist for Def Leppard. A soulful, heartfelt tribute in the beginning, which blows up into a hard rock song.'Freedom Slaves' is rockin' with excellent musicianship, while 'Government Personnel' is a pure acoustic, near-spoof that lasts barely a minute but is still very entertaining.The highly suggestive 'Toke About It' uses Van Halen-like showmanship rock to close out the album in the vein of early Tesla.The bonus disc of this Bad Reputation remaster is great. We have all the B-sides from the several singles the album generated, such as 'Children's Heritage', 'Run Run Run', and their cover of the classic 'Ain't Superstitious', some of these also featured as Japanese bonus tracks.Additionally there's the rare mix of 'Song And Emotion [Rockline Version]' and some juicy live cuts.For many fans and critics, Tesla reach their peak with "Psychotic Supper". The musicianship throughout is unbelievable, and the writing is first class.It's by far, their most diverse album, exploring different tempos, new themes, and unleashing each band member’s creative potential.A MUST HAVE, definitive version of this great album.
