3 Tracks; Reissue; Limited to 500 copies.
Crushing Proto-Punk debut EP from 1976 with NEW YORK DOLLS' Arthur Kane & future W.A.S.P. frontman Blackie Goozeman. Fully remastered from original tapes by guitarist Andy Jay.
Another lost classic and missing link between the glam rock and punk era, KILLER KANE BAND formed its embryonic state during the NEW YORK DOLLS ill-fated 1975 tour in Florida when JOHNNY THUNDERS and Jerry Nolan split and headed back to NYC, leaving the band in a desperate grasp for fill-in members, resulting in bass played Arthur Kane’s call up to his old friend Blackie Goozeman, from his days growing up in the Bronx, to fill Thunders' spot on the remaining dates. The two decided to head to Los Angeles after the tour, as the Dolls days were numbered at that point, so they enlisted guitarist Andy Jay from the MOTOR CITY BAD BOYS and drummer Jimi Image, and set out to conquer the LA club scene with their gritty ALICE COOPER-styled proto-punk sound. Rubbing elbows with such netherworld luminaries as the BERLIN BRATS, HOLLYWOOD STARS and Ron Asheton's New Order, Killer Kane Band didn't last long, but made a lasting impact, launching the career of future W.A.S.P. frontman Blackie Lawless (Goozeman) in the process, as well as laying down a scorching three-track EP recorded in 1976.
