They recorded a demo and then went off to Japan where O’Hashi’s name and rock magazines helped push the album to #1 on the independent charts on it’s way to selling over 10,000 copies. The first major label release, Kicked & Klawed featured some re-recorded versions of songs of the East Meets West demo and shot to #3 on the Japanese charts, unfortunately success was limited elsewhere.
Their fate was sealed when they were dropped from their record label and Ellis left to form Heavy Bones (a band that included Quiet Riot and W.A.S.P. drummer Frankie Banali). An album of unreleased songs would resurface several years after the band disintegrated. Several members reunited in 2003 for a mini-tour in Japan, so future material is not out of the question.
