The House of Lords is the upper house of Parliament in the United Kingdom, made up of members of the nobility and high-ranking clergy.
House of Lords is also a great glam band, formed in Los Angeles back in 1988. The band formed from the ashes of Giuffria, namesake of keyboardist Gregg Giuffria.
Originally signed to Simmons Records (yes, that Simmons), the band underwent several line-up changes before settling on the name House of Lords and releasing a self titled album.
The original line-up included Giuffria, vocalist James Christian, guitarist Lanny Cordola, bassist Chuck Wright and drummer Ken Mary. The debut album peaked at #78 on the Billboard chart. Perhaps the best known track on House of Lords is "I Wanna Be Loved." The albums SAHARA and Demons Down followed, each less successful than the predecessor.
Several personnel and label changes sent House of Lords into hiatus, but recently an all new lineup burst back on the music with two new albums. The phenomenal World Upside Down was released in May 2006 and the nostalgic "greatest hits" Live in the UK was released earlier this year.
