Back in 1996 – 1997, Rachel Bolan had a side project with former Saigon Kick drummer Phil Varone called Prunella Scales. The band released their one and only CD, “Dressing Up The Idiot” on the now defunct Mutiny Records. Those of you who immediately associate Rachel Bolan with Skid Row will be surprised with the sound of this record. Prunella Scales sounds nothing like the early 90′s Skid Row with Sebastian Bach. In fact, their sound might have more in common with the later incarnations of Skid Row.
Their sound has a modern hard rock vibe, with a dash of alternative and an occasional punch of metal for good measure. Skid Row producer Michael Wagener helped mix this CD, and the songs flow well as a result. Bolan is not the strongest singer in the world, but he has some very solid musicians backing him up in this band.
The first couple of songs on this CD “Crisp” and “Deadman” show some promise. “Freak Machine” is the most rocking tune on this disc and easily my favorite. The song “When” even has some almost Clapton like guitar moments.
As a whole, this isn’t the strongest batch of songs I have heard, and by the time I get half way through “Dressing Up The Idiot”, I am ready to move onto something else.
In my opinion, this is a CD for Rachel Bolan die hard fans only.
This CD has been out of print for quite some time. You can purchase “Dressing Up The Idiot” for next to nothing at this link.

While searching for a new label over the past year, Lillian Axe was looking for a label who wanted the band to be part of their present and future. Blistering
Records proved to be the most aggressive suitors for Lillian Axe and that made our decision that much easier to make. Blistering Records wanted Lillian Axe
and Lillian Axe wanted to be part of Blistering Records.
Lillian Axe, having re-established themselves in 2007 and 2008 look forward to 2009 as the year of The Axe. Lillian Axe will embark on their world tour in June
in support of their new CD, “Sad Day On Planet Earth” taking them across the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan. Every city and every festival that
wants Lillian Axe will have them. Lillian Axe look forward to being on the road for the next 12 months.
Although, Lillian Axe never forgets its past, their sound is very modern. The new CD entitled “Sad Day On Planet Earth” is by far their strongest album
musically speaking. There are so many different sounding songs that all forms of radio: Active Rock, Mainstream Rock and Metal Radio will embrace this album.
Lillian Axe are happy to be giving this album to a label who truly believes in the band. 14 songs of pure Lillian Axe.
The songs that will be appearing on “Sad Day On Planet Earth” were written by Steve Blaze. The song titles are: Megaslowfade, Ignite, Divine, Down Below The
Ocean, Jesus Wept, Within Your Reach, Sad Day On Planet Earth, Fire Blood The Earth & Sea, The Grand Scale Of Finality, Cold Day In Hell, Blood Raining Down
On Her Wings, Hibernate, Kill Me Again and Nocturnal Symphony.
All the album artwork is being created by Peter Tsakiris, who is a major force in the industry having created album art for Dio, Twisted Sister, Deep Purple,
Ted Nugent, Overkill, Jackyl and Warrior Soul to name a few.
Once again, we thank you for the opportunity to make the music Lillian Axe has believed in its whole career. Lillian Axe looks forward to making music with you
today, tomorrow and in the future.
Keep an eye out for more news on Lillian Axe as we get closer to the birth of “Sad Day On Planet Earth.”
