Nasty Idols were a glam metal, hard rock band from Malmö Sweden, which was formed in 1987. After the band split in 1995 they reformed in 2006. Since then the band has released a fifth studio album Boy's town and a sixth album Kalifornia. Band frontman Andy Pierce died in 2013.The band first formed in 1987 with the lineup of Andy Pierce on (Vocals), Jonnie Wee on (Lead Guitar), Dick Qwarfort on (Bass), George Swanson on (Drums), Roger White on (Keyboards) and were more of a straight up Glam Metal in the style of bands such as Mötley Crüe, Poison & Hanoi Rocks. Their first gig was played at a local festival in Sweden taking inspiration from such acts as early Mötley Crüe, Kiss, Sweet and Alice Cooper. After the release of their self-financed single Don't Walk From Love/Easy Come, Easy Go they signed to independent label HSM/CBS Records. Their debut record was released soon after in 1989 named Gigolos on Parole which then followed by more shows and an ever increasing fan-base.Changes were soon made in the band's line-up resulting in Peter Espinoza coming into the line-up to replace Jonny Wee on (Lead Guitar) which led to recording of some of the first tracks for their next record. In 1991 the band released Cruel Intention which was greeted by a number of high rating reviews from numerous magazines. "Cool Way of Living", "Can't Get Ya' Off" and "Trashed N' Dirty" had music videos recorded for them and were played heavily on MTV's Headbangers Ball. The album was soon released afterwards in Germany and Japan.In 1993 the band released their third record, Vicious. The album did not do as well as their previous record, due in part to the decreasing hold the Glam Metal sound was having at the time over the mainstream. Interest was moving more to the new sound of grunge popularized by bands such as Alice in Chains, Nirvana and Soundgarden. Most hard rock bands resorted to changing their core sound to more of a darker and heavier tone as an attempt to pique interest in the genre. "Heads Down (In Tinseltown)" and "Ain't Got Nothin" were made as videos; the latter being a much darker one than previous releases.By 1994 the grunge wave had all but created a mass of lost interest in the glam metal genre which increasingly made life even harder for most bands. Some even resulted in using drugs a lot more as bands were not making much money from gigs or record sales. Peter Espinoza left the band at this time to move on with other projects that he had. A fourth record was known to be under development at the time named The Fourth Reich but the label soon went bankrupt before the record was finished. The record would later be released in 2002 as Heroes for Sale by Perris Records. The band split up in 1995.The band's remaining members tried their best through the years to survive through a more degrading music industry. The most notable band being Majestic, Peter Espinoza's brainchild, which enjoyed success in Japan, as well as vocalist Andy Pierce's band Machinegun Kelly and later United Enemies. American label Perris Records later re-released all of the band's studio record's including a best-of and 1995 record The Fourth Reich renamed as Heroes for Sale.As 2006 came the band was announced as playing a reunion gig at the Sweden Rock Festival. This was later followed by the release of The Rejects on the Road tour. Throughout the same year the band played numerous shows in Sweden which were then followed by playing gig's and touring in Italy and the UK. The band spent much of 2008 recording their follow-up to Vicious and Heroes For Sale named Boys Town. The 12 track album was later released on April 27, 2009 through Metal Heaven records. The record was met with a warm reception from fans, and some percentage of the media that still knew of the band outside of Sweden.The band went for a short break in 2010 to ready themselves for a comeback with them playing a few shows in the year. On their official website the band named a few songs for the next record; "Kalifornia", "Nitestalkin", "Without Mercy", "Jack In A Box", "Roadtrip" and "No More Rules".Kalifornia was released on July 3, 2012.On February 27, 2013, the band revealed via their official website that founding member Dick Qwarfort had decided to leave the band.On December 5, 2013, frontman Andy Pierce, the last remaining original member of the band, died suddenly at the age of 45, from a brain hemorrhage.It is currently unknown whether the band will continue in light of recent events.
Cruel Intention is Nasty Idols second album release after 1989's debut Gigolos on Parole. The album was re-released in 2002 as the band's original label (HSM) had gone bankrupt in 1994.It's kinda weird when you think about it!!! Sweden has always been a good place for Hard Rock & Pop/Rock music. Not many bands decided to play Sleaze/Glam though and even less were any good at it. Nasty Idols from the southern parts of Sweden (Malmö) were one of few bands, that actually broke through to a wider audience. (Others: Shotgun Messiah, Easy Action, Candy Roxx?, Glorious Bankrobbers, Swedish Erotica?, Backyard Babies?)."Cruel Intention" was originally released back in 1991. It's without a doubt, The Idols best album ever and just as good, if not better, than all the US Glam/Sleaze bands. It's all about sex, drugs, rock'n'roll, and a shitload of attitude. A milestone in Scandinavian sleaze rock and only Shotgun Messiah, managed to record better albums in Sweden really. MTV Europe favorite "Cool Way Of Living" (Vanessa Warwick at Headbanger's Ball loved this track), is only one of the highlights here. "The Way Ya' Walk", "American Nights", "Alive N' Kickin", "House Of Rock'N'Roll" (very much like PBF), and "Devil In Disquise" are all great party songs. The Poison meets Tuff ballad "Can't Get Ya' Off My Mind" is darn fine too. This is a must have CD for Glam/Sleaze fans out there. This kicks the crap outta' any old Poison album in my opinion. Poison may have done some better songs, but not a better, full album. This US version also contains 2 bonus tracks I may add."Vicious" was the follow up album to "Cruel" and were originally released in 1993. Sadly this album came out a couple of years too late really. The big sleaze period was already gone and grunge began to take over the world instead. The overall sound is a bit heavier than previous release, but it's still very much Glam/Sleaze. Just a bit sleazier and with maybe not as many good songs as before. "Head's Down (In Tinsel Town)" is maybe their best rock song ever though. Not to mention that "No Time", is Nasty Idols best power ballad. This CD is also blessed with 2 bonus tracks, never before released. Still, a fine piece of Swedish hardrock history this is. Perris Records have done some really good re-releases here.
