FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 01/28/2009
Hollywood 80’s Metal band LONDON – best known for their hilarious appearance in the Penelope Spheeris Documentary film DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION PART II: THE METAL YEARS (and whose former members included at one time or another Nikki Sixx, Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Steven Adler, Blackie Lawless and Fred Coury) – will be reuniting for their first live show in 21 years at Paladino’s in Reseda, California on February 14th, 2009.
Lead guitarist and band founder LIZZIE GREY, vocalist NADIR D’PRIEST, co-lead guitarist SEAN LEWIS and drummer TIM YASUI will be performing songs from the LONDON albums Nonstop Rock (1984), Don’t Cry Wolf (1986) as well as the songs “Breakout” and “Russian Winter” from the 1988 Metal Years movie.
The inspiration for the reunion show comes fresh off the success of the Cleopatra/Deadline Records release of the 1989 LONDON studio demos appropriately entitled The Metal Years (now available on iTunes, Amazon.com and other fine retailers) last winter on both CD and limited-edition 12” Vinyl , as well as the continued massive exposure of the band’s 80s music videos on You Tube and Myspace.
Appearing with LONDON will be 80’s Sunset Strip veterans WITCH featuring the notorious BETSY from BITCH on lead vocals, PERFECT STRANGER and several other local metal acts. Spinning metal all night long between sets will be KNAC.COM’s own “DJ WILL”. Paladino’s has been the main Los Angeles venue for all hard rock and metal acts for more than a decade and is located at 6101 Reseda Boulevard, Reseda, California (818) 342-1563.
