Singer Liz Lascivious has posted the following on Leaded Fuel’s blog today:
Good evening folks! It’s been a while now since I posted something here or even went online with this profile. But now I finally have internet connection in my new flat so here I am, back in business! As you probably know, there’s been lots of stuff going on the past months with the recording and release of “Inhale and get pale”, two tours abroad and god knows how much planning and hard work to get everything together! Our lovely manager Kate has been taking care of this profile a lot while I’ve been busy and we all owe her a big thanks for that!
So now when we have some kind of summer vacation we took that oppurtunity to plan for our glorious future. Andy Jones has been our bass player since day one and stayed with us through all gigs, recordings and tours. Evolving into a pretty good bass player over time. Still, we couldn’t help to feel more and more that he wasn’t the right guy for our future missions. We felt that we needed a guy of different character with a different style of playing. So I decided to take a chance and ask the best bass player I know in Stockholm – only the best is good enough for us – Rick-y, the bass player of Jailbait and formerly Sharp. Fortunately he liked the idea and was very positive from the start. We have done two rehearsals together now and feel that there’s really no need for more time to think. This guy suits us perfectly and we can hardly wait to go out on the road with him! To make a famous movie quote “This seems like the beginning of a beautiful friendship”
I also might add that there wasn’t any hard feelings from Andy, he accepted the decision and said that he had plans of quitting anyhow, working with his own musical project. I guess we all had that feeling, wich made the decision easier.
So here he is, the new pulse of Leaded Fuel: Rick-y!

Over and out. Your up-ripper,
PS. The current tour plans include Sweden and Norway in August/September, Southern Germany, Switzerland, Italy and maybe Austria in November. Hopefully Spain and the UK in the winter and perhaps even USA next summer. No dates set yet though, except for Oslo 6th September.
The glam scene in Sweden continues to churn out quality new bands for the hard rock masses to check out. The band Leaded Fuel has the image that will send your memories of the 80’s glam metal scene on the Sunset Strip into a tailspin.
What I like about Leaded Fuel is they don’t come out sounding exactly like peers in bands like Hardcore Superstar, Crash Diet or Crazy Lixx. They have a sound that is one part 80’s sleaze metal, one part Ramones style punk, and a hint of 70’s glam. The guitar riffs and style remind me of Appetite era Guns N’ Roses, and yet, their sound is different enough without sounding like a rip off.
Your enjoyment of Inhale and Get Pale will probably depend on your appreciation of those fore mentioned acts. I have to admit that Liz Lascivious’ vocals are an acquired taste. Personally, I like his sound, as it is quite different from so many of the acts coming out of Sweden as of late.
Inhale and Get Pale is somewhat of a grower. I didn’t immediately take to this one the first spin. Successive listens uncovered a few gems on this disc, and I find myself liking this more with each play. This music is raw, sleazy, and most importantly, good!!
Give Leaded Fuel a chance, and I think you will like what you hear. You can check them out on their myspace page. You can but their new CD, from Costa Ovest Records at this link.
