DANGEROUS TOYS TO RELEASE 2OTH ANNIVERSARY LIVE CD/DVD:
September 21, 2006
CPR teams up with Austin Hard Rock heroes DANGEROUS TOYS to release 20 Year Anniversary Live CD/DVD!!
In the hairspray and eyeliner soaked excesses of the late 80’s, few bands embodied the gritty, ass-stomping Southern Hard Rock lifestyle quite like Dangerous Toys. Signed in 1988 to Columbia Records, their self-titled 1989 debut produced the hits “Teas’ n Pleas’ n” and “Scared”, (both of which are still mainstays on Classic Rock Radio and VH1) and was eventually certified Gold.
1990’s Hellacious Acres (which would also be certified gold, were it not for the advent of SOUNDSCAN) would be the band’s last record for Columbia, as a whirlwind 3 years of touring including support slots for Judas Priest, Alice Cooper, Metal Church, Motorhead, L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, the Cult, Bonham, and Accept took it’s toll, and in 1993 the band and their major-label counterpart parted ways.
After releasing 2 more studio albums independently, 1994’s Pissed, and 1995’s The Artist Formerly Known as Dangerous Toys, Austin’s finest parted ways officially, reuniting only a few more times over the next decade, including a 1999 run supporting Alice Cooper, and hugely successful reunion shows in the US and Japan, one of which was immortalized on the Live LP Vitamins and Crash Helmets- Live Greatest Hits..
Now on the eve of the band’s 20th anniversary, Corporate Punishment is extremely proud to announce that we have teamed up with the DT’s to release what is to sure to be the ultimate collection for fans both old and new, a LIVE double CD/DVD retrospective recorded in Austin 2004, featuring 22 tracks, clocking in at over 2 HOURS of live material!
Also make sure you check out DT vocalist Jason McMaster’s new project BROKEN TEETH, who will be releasing their debut record in early 2007 on Killingbird Records/CPR. You can visit them online at www.myspace.com/brokenteeth.
