Cry Wolf is a hair metal band formed in the San Francisco Bay Area in the mid-1980s. Originally named Heroes, the band consisted of Tim Hall, Steve McKnight, Phil Deckard, John Freixas and JC Crampton. This was a harder, darker affair than the products of their group and categorically distanced them from hair and glam rock. ”Twenty years later. “This is modern melodic rock“, states Brian McGowan, “Edgier, grittier, a generation later, Twenty Ten is a natural progression from Crunch. Weve all grown up and so has the music. ”Originally named Heroes, Cry Wolf was formed in the San Francisco East Bay Area with Tim Hall, Steve McKnight, Phil Deckard, John Freixas and JC Crampton in the mid-1980s. In 1986, the moved to Los Angeles and started working the Hollywood club circuit. Soon after, keyboardist JC Crampton left the band, and they were forced to change the band’s name, a contest was held in the local BAM Magazine, with the person coming up with the winning name winning Mötley Crüe/Whitesnake concert tickets. The name Cry Wolf was chosen out of hundreds of entries, looking to set themselves apart from the thousands of other bands flooding into Los Angeles in the late ‘80s, the band gave away their four-song demo to anyone willing to sign their mailing list. Soon, however, the demo was garnering international attention, kelv Hellrazer described the four song demo the best he’d ever heard, and further stated “I know it’s all been said before but I kid you not. Billboard magazine even recognized Cry Wolf as “One of the top five unsigned bands in the world”. This was short-lived, however, as the band was offered a recording contract from Epic/Sony on the night of their first show of their tour. The Japanese success led to an American recording contract and the re-release of the album on Grand Slamm/IRS records. This album, along with the debut in Japan, were produced and engineered by David DeVore, the US release had a little different track listing. The band dropped I Am The Walrus and Wings and replaced them with Road To Ruin, On The Run and Dirty Dog Night. Along with an immensely popular MTV Japan video of West Wind Blows, while in Houston, TX, during a tour in support of Crunch, however, the bands equipment truck was stolen, abruptly ending their tour. At this point, Paul Cancilla had decided to leave the band, the band brought in drummer John E. Link, as well as changed management. The band continued on as Cry Wolf through 1992 with a new sound. Unfortunately, the record company went out of business
First album by glam rock band Cry Wolf. Released only in Japan.Their first self-titled album, which in 1989 was an EP, before the long-awaited release of Crunch a year later. At the head of this quartet, we find Tim Hall on vocals and Steve McKnight on guitar. Tim, perfect representative of the Hard US lineage, performs a song close to that of Mike Matijevic (STEELHEART): powerful treble, a catch of hell, and emotion.So we do not wonder when we listen to Stop, Look And Listen and Wings, where Tim points to the treble. Calmer, the ballad Pretender, which will be found on the album Crunch released in 1990, and the accoustique Long Hard Road remains a little "more" of this eponym. We close the album with the track Back to You: Steve McKnight perfects his guitar playing.Certainly, Cry Wolf was unfortunately little promoted, but this beginning seems to me memorable. We rediscover a less popular genre today than at the time.
