In the early 90’s, one band stood above the rest, with an outrageous stage show, provocative costumes (they looked like Rocky Horror Picture Show rejects), colorful backdrops, and a constant notoriety for “What’s Gonna Happen Next”!!
With songs like ‘Bubblegum Lover‘, ‘Too Damn Young‘ and ‘LUV NYC‘, Lovemaker quickly gained comparisons to Kiss, Poison, and the New York Dolls. Their antics and over-the-top shows helped the band to play all the great dive bars: Limelight, CBGB’s, Webster Hall, Pyramid Club, and many others. Not only did they constantly get the headlining spot on local gigs, but they were called on to fill the opening slot when major artists came through town. They opened up for Smashed Gladys, Warrant, Love/Hate, Widowmaker (Dee Snider), Star-Star, D-Generation, Richie Scarlet, Dee Dee Ramone, and many others.
Lovemaker was courted by every major label (MCA, Warner Bros., Columbia, Geffen). The labels showed interest in the talent, but backed away as Lovemaker was a fabulous disaster that could crash and burn at any moment.
FnA Records is proud to release the self-titled debut by Lovemaker. It is 13 songs of glam and sleaze, given to the listener just the way they would want it. Complete with a 16 page picture book, this silver pressed, limited edition, high-gloss CD package, is a fun and wild listen for everyone.
The 13 tracks recorded between 1994-1996 are:
04 Movin’ On
05 Sugar & Spice
06 Turn Me On
07 Nursery Rhyme
08 Bubblegum Lover
09 Goin’ Wild
10 Just Say No
11 One Cool Way
12 LUV NYC
13 Too Damn Young
The band and the label have slated a music video to be released in the near future.
