Alice in Wonderland

Listening to music of the past - and writing about it -  is fun. The way I see it, we all need an escape from everyday life.

Watch the evening news and count the many crimes against humanity. Go fill up your car and seethe at the easy profits of big oil. Sit idly by as the current administration mismanages more of our hard earned money while many fine young men and women die in an illegal war about a million miles away.

See? We need fun.

I like to keep things light and airy here at Bring Back Glam! I like to focus on the positives, which are old bands releasing new music and new bands carrying the torch of the glam movement.

I love talking to like-minded music fans, especially on forums. If you haven't visited the forums on Hair Bangers Radio or Hard Rock Hideout, click the links to the right and sign up.

Speaking of fun, do you remember Hericane Alice? The band was formed in Minnesota fairly late in the glam game, and featured singer Bruce Naumann, guitarist Leni Dimancari, bassist Scott Werner and drummer Rusty Miller. The band released Tear the House Down in 1990, which featured the single "Wild, Young and Crazy."

Here's the video for that track. Have a glammy Sunday dear readers!

Yes! We do need fun!
There are so many bands from the early 90's that were great, but never achieved the success they deserved. Hericane Alice is one of those bands! I love the album "Tear The House Down"!

p.s. Thanks for mentioning Hair Bangers Radio! You ROCK!

I got Tear the house down for like a dollar out of a bargain bi. It's alright, kind of like Skid Row yet a little more bland. One of the many bands that got a major label deal, but were just kind of lost in the shuffle.

Hi Allyson,
You know, I have had this in my collection for a long time, but I haven't listened to it for ever. I hated that they had to change their name from Hurricane Alice to Hericane Alice. (That was kind of stupid.) I liked them though, but like Mark said, they got lost in the shuffle towards the end of the 80's hard rock cycle.

The spelling change to Hericane Alice was because of a legal issue with the band Hurricane.

BTW I see Hericane Alice is going to be at Sturgis this year, hopefully it will rock!
