Today, I was introduced to Rock Sugar. If you’re a child of the 80s, or a big-hair-band fan, you’re about to be introduced to total awesomness. If you’re not, skip this post.
From the Rock Sugar bio:
And so, the hardcore degenerate heavy metal members of Rock Sugar spent the last two decades stuck on an island with nothing to do but drink schnapps, catch hard to digest wildlife, befriend monkeys and dream of their long lost groupies while listening only to, and being slowly and systematically brainwashed by, every favorite pop song of a 1980’s preteen girl. Bored, full of schnapps and wasting away on a tropical oasis, they built a stage out of driftwood, bamboo shoots and tree sap and got to work. Against the odds, Rock Sugar was alive… and they were practicing.
Finally rescued and now violently thrown back into the real life of present day Los Angeles, and with absolutely no clue whatsoever of anything that’s happened, developed or changed in the world since 1989, Rock Sugar is back and ready to electrify audiences with their brand new, razor sharp, psychotically original sound.
For some horrid reason, Rock Sugar isn’t available on iTunes. But you can find their music on YouTube, which I’m happy to share with you now.
Ladies and Gentlemen… Rock Sugar!!! Because Pop Rocks.
