Bio:

Pretty Boy Floyd is a glam metal band from Hollywood, California formed in 1987. They are most famous for their 1989 debut album Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz and the two singles from it; "Rock and Roll (Is Gonna Set the Night on Fire)" and "I Wanna Be With You". The band broke up in 1991, but reformed in 1995 releasing several new records since that time, and continue to the present.After rehearsing and playing a few shows on the sunset strip, Pretty Boy Floyd got their big break at MCA Records. Their debut album named Leather Boyz with Electric Toyz was released in 1989 and produced by producer Howard Benson.Two singles, and accompanying promotional videos were released from the album; "Rock and Roll (Is Gonna Set the Night on Fire)" and "I Wanna Be With You", which gained rotation on MTV. They were also having success in Europe at the time, by being the cover subject of hard rock magazine Kerrang! on December 16, 1989.Pretty Boy Floyd became embroiled in a dispute over the copyright of their band name, with a Canadian band also called Pretty Boy Floyd. The Canadian group released their debut Bullets and Lipstik the same year, but after a negotiated settlement agreed to surrender use of the name.Their music featured on two movie soundtracks, first the demo version of "48 Hours" was included on the 1989 The Karate Kid, Part III film. Two years later the previously unreleased "Slam Dunk" was released on the Ellen Barkin movie Switch soundtrack. However, by that time MCA Records had dropped the band.Vinnie Chas died in 2010 from heart failure.Kari Kane's (Cary Ayers) is now a special effects make-up artis.By late 1995 Pretty Boy Floyd had reformed. They recorded a five song E.P. titled A Tale of Sex, Designer Drugs, and the Death of Rock N Roll in 1998. The band featured former Big Bang Babies guitarist Keri Kelli, L.A. Guns bassist Keff Ratcliffe as well as Steve Summers (Steven Podwalski), Kristy Majors (Chris Maggiore, Jr.), and Kari Kane (Carl Ayers). The EP featured a cover of a song by Kelli's previous band Big Bang Babies.A full length album Porn Stars followed, and it featured five re-recordings of tracks from their debut album, and eight others including a cover of Alice Cooper's "Department of Youth".

Album:

PRETTY BOY FLOYD: “Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz” in its Perris Records reissue including 5 bonus tracks.The label also ordered a new artwork for this release (I still prefer the original).Songs such as “48 Hours”, “Rock And Roll Outlaws” and “Only The Young” really rock, and reminds one of Poison and early Motley Crue.There are also two nice slower paced songs called “Wild Angels” and “I Wanna Be With You”.This cult classic 80s US glam album reissue features five bonus tracks, including the original Japan Edition bonus track, very cool “Slam Dunk”. This is one of the very first Perris Records releases, and the and the new artwork ordered is quite poor. The original cover was much better, and ‘very ’80s’.However what matters is the music, and we have here bonus tracks and a much better output than the old CD version.Btw, this reissue is out of print, with used copied being sold for over $60.Pretty Boy Floyd sounded good and looked outrageous, a combination that created a huge buzz in their early years. I feel they should’ve had more recognition, and give Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz two thumbs up!Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz is the debut album from the band Pretty Boy Floyd. It reached #130 on the United States Billboard chart in 1989. It was released on MCA Records, and was produced by Howard Benson, who would go on to have a production career in the 90's and beyond, working with Hoobastank among many others.There are videos for the songs "Rock And Roll (Is Gonna Set The Night On Fire)" and "I Wanna Be With You".
