Bio:

London is an American glam hard rock & heavy metal band based in Hollywood, California.The band included several members that would go on to play in more famous bands, such as Mötley Crüe, Guns N' Roses, W.A.S.P. and Cinderella. The band paved the way for larger bands that became popular in the glam metal movement. London started out as a glam rock group, influenced by the likes of Sweet, New York Dolls and Mott the Hoople. By the time the group started recording material in the mid 1980s with vocalist Nadir D'Priest in the band, they were playing glam metal. Nadir was influenced by bands like Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Queen. London was formed in 1978 by Lizzie Grey, Nikki Sixx and Dane Rage. The three met when Sixx and Rage were recruited to play bass and drums for Sister, the band that Grey was in with Blackie Lawless.This lineup did not last long and soon Grey, Sixx and Rage left to form London.London was briefly joined by Michael White as the vocalist, who bore a resemblance, both in voice and image, to Robert Plant. After disagreements with the band, White left to focus on his own band, The White. For years, London tried to get a record deal, but the formula was not working until 1984, when Nadir D'Priest and Brian West joined the band. By 1979, White had been replaced by vocalist Henri Valentine and keyboard player John St. John. Nigel Benjamin, an English vocalist who had sung for glam rock band Mott and English Assassin, joined the band after Valentine left. Henri Valentine has since died.Becoming jaded with all of the member changes and looking to move on, Sixx and Benjamin were next to leave the band. Nikki Sixx went on to form the world-famous band Mötley Crüe. A song that Nikki and Lizzie had written together while in London, "Public Enemy No. 1", was included on Mötley Crüe's debut album Too Fast for Love. Benjamin joined Satyr and later recorded the soundtrack to the horror movie Rocktober Blood with Sorcery. Blackie Lawless was brought into the band to replace Sixx on bass, but this didn't last very long and the band fell apart. Rage would become Dane Scarborough, leaving drumming to become an inventor, eventually establishing the toy company Überstix LLC in 2005 . After the original London had fallen apart, founder Lizzie Grey became involved with a couple of other groups, including hard rockers St. Valentine in 1983, featuring Nigel Itson (Ruby Slippers) and Desi Rexx (D'Molls). After the original London had disbanded, co-founder Dane Rage recruited Scott Free, Paul Hanson and Bobby Blitz to form the Brooklyn Brats. During this time, Paul Hanson taught guitar at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood and recorded the guitar soundtrack for the movie "Back to the Future". Michael J. Fox rehearsed with the band to prepare for the movie and played live with the Brooklyn Brats on one occasion with Chuck Berry in attendance. 1984 saw the rebirth of London, although it was now a different beast. The new lineup consisted of Grey, Itson, an English vocalist named John Ward and a bassist named Donny Cameron.By 1985, the lineup consisted of Grey and Izzy Stradlin, vocalist Nadir D'Priest, drummer Bobby Marks (Keel, Steeler) and bassist Brian West (TKO). Marks soon left to form the first lineup of Keel, and Fred Coury was brought in as his replacement. Stradlin then left to join Hollywood Rose/Guns N' Roses with close friend Axl Rose. Steven Adler was also in the lineup, playing on some early demos while with Nadir, Brian, Lizzie Fleetwood Mac former guitarist Bob Welch. Adler left the band and eventually joined up with G&R. Non-Stop Rock, London's debut album, was recorded at this point. Soon after the album was finished, Coury left the band, eventually becoming part of Cinderella. Wailin' Jennings Morgan replaced him. Before the band's second album Don't Cry Wolf (produced by Kim Fowley) was recorded, two new members, drummer Derek Shea and guitarist Frankie Jones joined.In 1988, London appropriately appeared in the Penelope Spheeris film The Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years describing their band as a "rock star training academy".After a decade, two albums, 19 different members and very little commercial success, founding member and guitarist Lizzie Grey left London in 1988. He went on to play with the groups Ultra Pop and Spiders and Snakes. Although the band now had no more original members, London carried on for two more years in Los Angeles. Brian West and vocalist Nadir D'Priest were joined by guitarists Amos Sanfilippo and Sean Lewis and performed shows in the Hollywood and San Fernando Valley areas. London also made an appearance in the 1989 film Hollywood Boulevard II, starring Ginger Lynn.D'Priest moved to Arizona for a brief period, but returned to continue working with West and Sean Lewis. They released a third and final album, Playa Del Rock in 1990, but by this time the band agreed with new label Noise International to rebrand the band D'Priest. Some versions of the album had the new band name, but many were released as London. By this time the band was managed by Eric Greif, coincidentally an early assistant manager of Sixx's band Mötley Crüe, with drummer Alan Krigger, formerly of Ike and Tina Turner and Giuffria replacing Yasui, and San Filippo replaced by occasional keyboardist for The Cult Vince Gilbert. A last burst of publicity via an MTV-played, David Bellino-directed video for the single Ride You Through the Night, coupled with a supporting tour, fizzled quickly, with the band breaking up by late 1991 after internal strife and a label wind-down. London/D'Priest charted on the Z-Rock "Z-50" as well as on MTV and toured extensively during 1990–1991 at Z-Rock affiliate and subscriber markets. London, with the Playa Del Rock lineup of D'Priest, Lewis, West and Krigger, performed a reunion show at the Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, CA in early 2010, a show in Redondo Beach, CA in April 2011, and the Sunset Strip Music Festival at the Whiskey-a-Go-Go in Summer 2011. It was reported that Nadir D'Priest reformed London.The group stated their plans as appearing live, first in Europe on November 21 – December 5, 2012. London is planning and releasing a single and video of London Live! 2012–13 filmed in Nashville, Tennessee. The duo, including drummer Tim Yasui, recorded a track for Cleopatra Records, Shout at the Devil, a tribute to Mötley Crüe which also featured tracks by Pretty Boy Floyd, Marq Torien and Jack Russell of Great White. Cleopatra Records also released "London The Metal Years", a compilation of demos cut on the fly at American Recording Studios. London is currently in studio mixing the new album titled "Mastered LIVE!" which was mixed by producer Michael Wagener at Double Trouble Productions in Nashville. The album will include two new tracks, one Rock En Español song and one classic metal track.

Album:

Don't Cry Wolf was the second album by London, released in 1986.The song "For Whom the Bell Tolls" was co-written by Blackie Lawless, he later recorded his own version with W.A.S.P., featured on the album The Headless Children."Oh! Darling" is a cover of The Beatles song.The album was remastered and reissued in 2014. London returned with their second album in 1986, one year after their initial release Non-Stop Rock. If the band are to be believed, this album was ‘funded by some guy who went to jail who now wants his money back’ — as spoken in The Decline of Western Civilization Part 2: The Metal Years. They were talking about $100 grand of debt for this one, so surely it can only be better than Non-Stop Rock… right? Correct. Though the production isn’t great, this is a right gem of an album, sitting in between the collection of demo songs that can be heard on 2008’s The Metal Years and the polished versions of those songs released on 1990’s Playa Del Rock. Nadir D’Priest‘s voice sounds great, the fret work done by Lizzie Grey is brilliant, and it sounds like a band that are clicking together and having fun. The only thing that I’ll add is that there are some sound effects in here and some keyboards in parts… but I’ll forgive them for that. Don’t Cry Wolf starts off with “Drop The Bomb”, which I love — with the exception of the whine which doesn’t give it atmosphere, it simply annoys. However this song has a lot of low-end bass work and throbs along. “Set Me Free” is filler, but following that is a great little number called “Hit And Run Lover”. “Under The Gun” is a typical mid-eighties ‘metal’ song, complete with keyboards, and fits in nicely with anything you would hear around this time. A cover of The Beatles‘ “Oh Darling” starts off sounding really manky and then just degenerates into a really poor crooning number. This is the type of shit that you would hear getting sung by drunken people in a karaoke bar. Survive that and you’ll reach “Fast As Light” which is simply tremendous, even with its whizzing keyboard effects. This track just pounds along with excellent bass and drums, some great riffs happening, and is completed by a typical Nadir scream. “Put Out The Fire” again continues the throbbing pounding vibe of the album, I just wish Lizzie‘s guitar work was louder. “Killing Time” is a song I want to hate — I really do — but it does sound dirty and that counts for a lot, your girlfriend may even like this one. Second from last is “We Want Everything”, another really good paced number, before the album concludes with the Blackie Lawless co-written ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’, which for me, just sits out of place. It’s a good song, atmospheric and well performed, but I’m still pumped from “Fast As Light”, “Put Out The Fire” and ‘We Want Everything” and this song just sucks the energy out of you… it’s a big crash from the earlier numbers.Still, Don’t Cry Wolf is a great album and as I’ve commented elsewhere London should have been huge — it is a shame they didn’t as these guys deserved it. Nadir D’Priest recently commented that he owns the copyright for this album and wants to re-master and re-release it — now that’s something to hope for!
