Do you remember Spread Eagle? The sleaze band sort of got a late start in the Glam genre. Think 1989ish. Anyway, Spread Eagle are from New York and were on the Universal (MCA) label. You can hear some of the band's songs on Myspace.
Myspace leads me to today's article.
I don't usually pay all that much attention to Myspace bulletins. Bands send the same notes over and over all day long...and then there's the surveys. Oh Glam, the surveys! Quite frankly, the bulletins are just too much to read - and I never have much time.
Well, Spread Eagle sent a bulletin yesterday. This seemed odd and it caught my eye.
Said bulletin simply stated "announcement tomorrow."
Ok, I'll admit it. I'm cynical. I can't help it - I just am.
I immediately thought "What can Spread Eagle possibly be announcing?" The band is already reformed. Spread Eagle have also already remastered their debut. Hell, maybe the band is announcing a tour. Why not? Nearly every other Glam band has reformed and toured over the past 18 months. Spread Eagle might as well get some of that hot nostalgia coin. You know, while us poor Glam fans still have some coin to spare.
So, guess the announcement. When it posts on Myspace, I'll create a follow-up to this article.
Ok, some videos. I'd be lying if I said these tracks were anything less than Glamtastic.
Here's "Scratch Like a Cat."
Here's "Switchblade Serenade."
The announcement is that the band will tour in December. Dates TBA.
