Shameless are a hard rock glam band that was formed in the spring of 1989 by bassist Alexx “Skunk” Michael in Munich, Germany.Shameless are a hard rock and glam metal supergroup based in Munich, Germany. Although the band are based in Germany, they are notable for having numerous American rockers appearing on their albums.The original incarnation of Shameless was formed in April 1989 by bassist Alexx "Skunk" Michael. The band were relatively popular in their home town, selling out a 500 capacity club on their very first show. The vocalist left the band at the end of 1991 and they folded.Michael decided to reform Shameless in 1998 with his friend % guitarplayer BC. Alexx enlisted help from his friend, Eric Singer (drummer for KISS, Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath).Through Singer, the band hired an all-star lineup that included Bruce Kulick (KISS), Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns), Robert Sweet (Stryper), Steve “Sex” Summers (Pretty Boy Floyd), Stevie Rachelle (Tuff), Brian Tichy (Billy Idol, Whitesnake) and others to record their debut release, “Backstreet Anthems.”Produced by former Guns N’ Roses guitarist, Gilby Clarke, “Backstreet Anthems” was recorded at Studio City in Los Angeles, California. The release contained 10 tracks, including covers of “A Hard Dayz Night (The Beatles) and “Flaming Youth” (KISS).Following its release, Shameless continued to build a cult following in the hard rock underground. In January of 2000, Alexx & BC returned to Keri Kelli’s (Alice Cooper, Slash’s Snakepit) studio in Orange County, California to record their sophomore release, “Queen 4 A Day.”Keeping the successful formula of their debut release, Michael and BC once again recruited some famous guest performers including Jani Lane (Warrant), Keith Alan (Big Band Babies), Steve Riley (L.A. Guns), Bruce Kulick (KISS), Eric Singer (KISS, Alice Cooper), Stevie Rachelle (Tuff), Steve Summers (Pretty Boy Floyd) and others. Shameless recorded 13 tracks but only 12 of them were used for the album. The last track (a cover of the KISS classic “Tomorrow” was used for a KISS Tribute CD and not included on the final version of the album.“Queen 4 A Day” was released in the summer of 2000 via MTM Music in Europe. The band toured Germany and the Netherlands in support of “Queen 4 A Day” including several performances where the band was joined onstage by Bruce Kulick (KISS).The group’s third release, “Splashed” was released in the summer of 2002. This time the band made a conscious decision to focus on a cohesive line-up that included Alexx Michael (bass), BC (guitar), Stevie Rachelle & Steve Summers (vocals) , and Mike Fasano (drums).“Splashed” carried on the Shameless spirit of real rock and roll while having good time.The release contained 11 original tracks with a bonus DVD of material from their 2000 tour, including a promotional video for the lead single, “Don’t Hesitate.”Following the release of “Splashed,” the band set out on a sold out tour of England, Germany, Holland, Austria & Italy . The band recorded several shows during the United Kingdom leg of the tour, and subsequently put out their first live release, “Super Hardcore Show.”It would be three years before Shameless returned to record their next studio release in december of 2006, “Famous 4 Madness”. Bassist, Alexx Michael and guitarist, BC were once again joined by vocalists, Steve Summers & Stevie Rachelle. “Famous 4 Madness” saw the band returning to fine form and enlisting help from outside musicians including Phil Lewis (L.A. Guns), Jani Lane (Warrant), John Corabi (The Scream, Motley Crue), Keri Kelli (Alice Cooper), Kari Kane (Pretty Boy Floyd), Eric Singer (KISS, Alice Cooper).In support of “Famous 4 Madness,” the band embarked on an European tour that took the band to Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. Shameless continued to tour through 2009-2010 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, France and Sweden.The band returned in December 2011, with a new studio release, “Dial S For Sex.” Featuring the two very successful songs, “Summertime Goodbye,” with vocalist Stevie Rachelle and guitarist Chris Holmes (W.A.S.P.) and a cover of the Katy Perry song“Hot N’ Cold” with Steve Summers on vocals.Shameless have recently completed recording their sixth studio release, “Beautiful Disaster.” The first single “Forever Ends Today” features Steve Summers (vocals), Tod T Burr(drums) along with BC & Michael Thomas(guitar) and Alexx Michael (bass). “Beautiful Disaster” contains 10 new original Shameless classics along with a cover of the T Rex / Marc Bolan classic “Life’s A Gas” featuring former The Runaways singer, Cherie Currie. This is the singer’s first appearance in the recording studio since 1998. Currie also lent her unique vocal talents on the Shameless original, “Dear Mum” that was written by Alexx Michael & Andy Brings. In addition, the band recorded the timeless Alice Cooper classic, “I’m Eighteen” with vocalist, Stevie Rachelle.Since their 1999 debut, Shameless have been establishing themselves as a band that doesn’t give a damn that the 80s are over – they continue to turn out good-natured, party rock and roll, regardless of shifting musical tends and styles.
To write that I was excited about this upcoming release is a bit of an understatement. Anticipation aside for a band made up of many veterans of the scene since the 80’s and current, I have to admit I was ignorant of the bands long ago inception in 1989 and continued creation of music. I had checked out some of their cover songs over the years but in all honesty I always regarded Shameless as a supergroup of musicians coming together to do just that, cover a song from an influential band or even more fun, a current charting pop song (check out the Katy Perry cover of “Hot & Cold” which I love both the cover and the original yes I do!). So just who are the musicians? Stevie Rachelle is a regular along with founder Alexx Michael, past guest appearances from Phil Lewis & Tracii Guns, Eric Singer & Bruce Kulick, Cherie Currie, Chris Holmes, Gilby Clarke, Jani Lane and more..On The Filthy 7, their 7th release, we are provided 11 tracks for our listening pleasure.Beginning with “How the Story Goes” sure is a great sounding start to me! The tone of the guitar is awesome. Very reminiscent of the UK Glam movement a la 70’s. Backing vocals just perfect. Love this song!Shameless The Filthy 7Next, we are given a cover of a song I loved back in the 80’s, Billie Ocean’s “Get Out of My Dreams, Get into My Car”. Terrific rendition.“I Don’t Wanna Know” is another strong song. Up-tempo drum beat and more melodic backing vocals.“Can’t Get Enough” reminds me of a 70’s KISS song style and structure all over. 4 songs in and 4 really good tunes!Track #5 slows down for a fairly standard slow tune sound. Not bad, I am fairly indifferent to “It Can’t Be That Bad”.“Serial Cheater” I am starting to loose interest. Perhaps it is the lyrical content, but the music is not doing it for me either, I may be getting too old for these lyrics.Once again, I will blame my age for lack of interest in “WTF R U”. Ok, back on track with a great starting riff to “Love Game” which is much more interesting musically than previous 2 tracks. I like it.The final 3 tracks are good with some cool bass lines and sounds all around. The release definitely falls off for me after the first 4 tracks. That said 4 really good songs, 2 songs I don’t have any interest in and 5 decent songs that I would listen to again is fine with me and I would recommend the release if sleazy, glam hard rock n’ roll is your thing. It is mine and this is served just fine.
